MiniRoos is designed for kids of all abilities, aged 4 – 11 years, 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, making life-long friends and, potentially, unearthing the next generation of Socceroos or Matildas.

MiniRoos football, formerly know as Small Sided Football (SSF), is a smaller version of football that provides boys and girls aged 4 - 11 with a fun introduction to football. MiniRoos is designed for kids; it is all about having fun, learning new skills and making life-long friends. More about the benefits of the MiniRoos approach.

The progression through the MiniRoos formats of 4v4, 7v7 and 9v9 is a sound educational method and process to ready young children to play 11v11. The progression helps players discover the differences in the size of the field and size of the goal and the benefits of having more space. It also helps children to learn to use different and well-developed techniques to play a more tactical game, as well as assisting them in understanding the role of different positions and determining what best suits them.

Normanhurst Eagles FC provides for MiniRoos Football through the GHFA, creating opportunities for boys and girls of all abilities, shapes and sizes to play football. GHFA provide MiniRoos games for Under 6 to Under 11 age groups. Full competitive football for 11v11 matches begins at Under 12 age group.
