Burwood FC Mini Roos

Mini Roos

Burwood FC runs Mini Roos programs throughout the year.  Mini Roos is designed for kids of all abilities, aged 4 – 9 years as an introduction to football and is a great way to prepare them for playing in the under 6’s and junior competitions in years to come.

 

The nation-wide initiative uses short, game-based sessions to introduce the sport of football to newcomers in an inclusive way. It focuses on learning new skills, being active and making life-long friends.

For more information visit the Mini Roos information pack.

Our junior teams include under 6’s to under 12’s and includes mixed, girls and boys teams.  In this age group the games are non-competitive, focusing on development of skills, playing as a team and making friends.  Games take place on a Saturday morning at Centenary Park in Croydon for under 6’s and under 7’s.  Once the team reaches under 8’s they will play home and away matches against other clubs.  Game last varying lengths and have different team sizes depending on the age group.


The teams will train once a week on either a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday evening at either Blair Park or Centenary Park.  The teams are coached and managed by volunteer parents and the training night is agreed between the teams.  Training normally takes place for one hour between 5pm and 7pm with the younger children taking the earliest hour.


During the season we also run a number of fun and inclusive events for our female football players on some Fridays.
