U8-U12 (Sub Junior Miniroos FV)

For these age categories it's all about development. Coaching wise we are looking at the big four; 1v1, running with the ball, striking and first touch. Experience wise we are looking to develop mateship and sportsman like qualities. All players are graded into three levels and no matter what level you are we aim to give you a great experience.

U8-U9 Miniroos

Matches start at varying times during Saturday morningA full 20 fixture schedule is available online. This is provided through Football Victoria. Games are home and away (within our local area). Teams are coached by parent volunteers. The coaches are all vetted and selected by the club and recieve on going in house training throughout the season, and must have a Working With Children Check. Training times depend on field space and coach availability. Teams usually train once per week, at 5pm  or 6pm for 1 hour. The U8 & U9 age category is soft graded. Meaning the competition is split into:

  • Joey (Beginner)
  • Wallaby (Intermediate)
  • Kangaroo (Advanced)


However, the club looks to roll teams over from the previous season with minimal changes. Our grading element is that we try to place new stronger players into vacancies in teams that are estimated to compete at Kangaroo level. Beginners in teams that compete in Joey and intermediates into Wallaby squads.

Gold Coin Referees are in house and organised by the club.

Playing formats as follows:

  • 7 v 7
  • goalkeepers 
  • 2 x 20 minute halves
  • unlimited interchange
  • size 3 ball

In Season 2022 we anticipate having at least 3 U8 and 3 U9 teams. Places are limited so register here now to avoid missing out.
