U8-U12 (Miniroos FFV)

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

U12 Miniroos

There are changes a foot for U12's this year. Whereas in 2018 they played full pitch with 11 v 11, there has been a decision that U12 will revert to 9 v 9 on a modified pitch.


However, like in prior years there will now be an official referee, scores will be recorded, there will be tables, and there will also be red & yellow cards.

So it will no doubt be an interesting year. 

They will more than likely play on a Saturday, though this has not yet been 100% decided.

So watch this space for further news.

Here is a link to the official FootballVictoria guidelines for u12s in 2019:
