Can I register late after teams are formed?

Yes you can as long as we have vacancies in the requested teams.

The U13 – U18 & Senior Competitions nominations are required by 10th February to Football Queensland. We have a little longer for our MiniRoos teams.

All players are encouraged to register by 31st January to avoid disappointment. This allows our coordinators to organise players into teams and finalise team numbers.

Therefore, it's highly recommended to register early to avoid disappointment.  Any late registrations that have friend requests can only be accommodated if those teams and age groups have vacancies.

Do we have all girls teams?

We are really pleased to offer both MIXED (Girls & Boys) and Girls only options (if sufficient number of girls register).

Squirts (U3-U5) are played on Saturday mornings and are skills and drills with boys and girls all together.

Mixed MiniRoos (U6-U12) games are played on Saturday mornings against a mix of boys and girls teams.

Under 6 & U7's teams are played (in-house) only at Rochedale Rovers vs other Rochedale Rovers teams.

Girls Only (Under 8 to U13) this year we again hope to increase the number of girls participating in football at Rochedale Rovers. Our female program is continuing to go and all female teams will be added as the need requires.

To field all female teams we are however reliant on the number of players registered.

We are always on the lookout for friends and/or school groups who may want to form a team and play for Rovers.

How does Miniroos U8's to U12's work?

Mini-Roos football caters for our younger players to give them an introduction to the game and play against teams of similar ability level. Ranging in age groups from U8 through to U12's. 

U8-U12 age groups participate in competitions administered through Football Queensland (FQ) with a home and away format. These games are generally played on a Saturday however kick off times may vary. 

Grading of players does occur (Wallabies, Quokkas & Kangaroos) from U8's and above, which happens at the start of the season. The club endeavours to place players in the teams that best reflect their development stage and skill level however keeping friendship groups in mind. This enables players the best opportunity to develop their skills and confidence. Players do need to trial for the highest grouping "Kangaroo" with trials to occur sometime in February with dates & times as set out below.

There are no competitive tables or points scoring for Mini-Roos teams - participation, development and enjoyment are the key goals.
