Under 8 - 12 Information

MiniRoos football caters for our youngest players to give them an introduction to the game. Ranging in age groups from Under 6 through to Under 11s, the purpose is to give children the basic skills of playing this low-contact team sport in a friendly, fun environment.

Ages U6 and U7 play on a smaller field (30m*20m) with a size 3 ball. The teams play with 4-a-side and games are divided into two halves - each half lasting 15 minutes. There is a 5 minute break in between.

The U8 and U9 age groups introduce goalkeepers and play 7-a-side on a larger field (50m by 40m) with 20 minutes in each half. Here the emphasis is on building skills in preparation for competitive football.

The U10 to U12 age groups play 9-a-side on 3/4 size pitches. These age groups will be graded into divisions, although no league tables will be published.
