Small Sided Football (5-11)

ALDI MiniRoos Club Football is the home of Australia’s largest network of grassroots football clubs, who provide opportunities for boys and girls of all abilities aged between 5 and 11 to play small sided games at the weekend.

Your child can sign up to a local club and join a team for the season where they will make life-long friends and have fun.

Clubs provide coaching sessions and set up matches in a relaxed environment where the aim is to teach new skills in an enjoyable way.

The smaller fields, modified rules and fewer players mean a more enjoyable game with more opportunities to touch the ball and more opportunities to score goals, once again increasing the likelihood of an overall positive experience.

As your child progresses through the various age groups they will be introduced to playing environments that most suit their stage of development and prepare them for the transition to 11v11 football when the time comes.
