Welcome 2019 and we hope that you have a fantastic year of fun, friendship and football with your club as you participate in the Aldi Miniroo’s program with your child and their team.
This year we have 6 clubs who will be running the Aldi MiniRoos Kick-Off program aimed at 4-9 year olds. Those clubs include:

There’s a few things you need to know before the games begin…
ALL coaches will have attained the FFA Miniroo’s Coaching Certificate qualification. The NFA are committed to providing the best footballing experience to all our participants, so we insist on all coaches attending this FREE, 2 – 3 hour course that shows both new and seasoned coaches safe, fun, organised training activities to provide the platform for these players to develop a life long love of our game.
