Mini Roos - Season 2017

 Who is it for

Miniroos is designed for boys and girls between the ages of U06 and U11. Teams are formed that can be mixture of boys and girls or for girls, depending upon numbers, there is an option to play in a girls only team.

 What is the Format

Miniroos is a fun, non-competitive introduction to soccer where the emphasis is on involvement and as many touches on the ball as possible. Children are organised into teams and play home and away games against other clubs. Different age groups play with varying numbers on the field with unlimited substitutions:-

  • U06 – typically 6 players in the team playing 4 v 4 with 15 minutes per half
  • U07 – typically 6 players in the team playing 4 v 4 with 15 minutes per half
  • U08 – typically 9/10 players on the team playing 7 v 7 with 20 minutes per half
  • U09 – typically 9/10 players on the team playing 7 v 7 with 20 minutes per half
  • U10 – typically 11/12 players on a team playing 9 v 9 with 25 minutes per half
  • U11 – typically 11/12 players on a team playing 9 v 9 with 25 minutes per half

 Dates & Venues

Miniroos games are played on a Saturday morning commencing on 25th March 2017 and running for 18 weeks (weather permitting) with a break for Easter weekend on 15th April but no other breaks during school holidays

Games are played on a home and away basis with home games played at Buckle Reserve, Menai or Casuarina Oval, Alfords Point. Away games are played throughout the Sutherland Shire.

The season concludes on Saturday 29th July 2017 with a gala presentation day.

For teams in the U11 age group, our association runs an end of season gala series tournament on Saturday 5th and Saturday 12th August.

Most teams train once per week on a weekday evening. The day, timing and location of this training is mutually agreed between the parents and Coach once the team is formed.

 Grading

Prior to the season starting we hold a grading day and all players are requested to attend.

The ideal objective is to place children into a team with players at a similar skill level to themselves.

Players in U06 to U09 age groups are able to either play in a team of friends or be graded and placed into an appropriate team relative to their skill level.

All players U10 and older are required to grade to be placed into a team appropriate to their skill level.

The grading days are held at Buckle Reserve, Menai as follows:-

  • U06/W06 13:00 – 14:00 Saturday 4th February 2017
  • U07/W07 14:00 – 15:00 Saturday 4th February 2017
  • U08/W08 15:00 – 16:00 Saturday 4th February 2017
  • U09/W09 16:00 – 17:00 Saturday 4th February 2017
