MINIROOS 2021

WELCOME TO THE 2021 SEASON! 

REGISTRATIONS ARE OPEN FOR ALL MINIROOS PLAYERS

This season, girls and boys who turn 5, 6, 7, 8 & 9 in 2021 are invited to register in our MiniRoos Club Football program.

MiniRoos Club Football at Fremantle City Football Club provides a family friendly environment for boys and girls of all abilities aged between 5 and 9 to play small, sided games on Saturdays**

** Our u5,6,7 & 8’s will play on Saturday mornings at Hilton Park and our u9’s will play Sunday morning in the Football West home & away season.

Our program focuses on maximizing players’ time with the ball, while nourishing individual and team development.

The key benefits for our MiniRoos players:

  • Fun, football game-based sessions that build fundamental motor skills.
  • Activities aim to improve confidence and self-esteem.
  • Low participant-to-coach ratio resulting in greater individual engagement.
  • Increased touches of the ball and more goal scoring opportunities.
  • Make new friends and develop fundamental social skills.
  • Develop values of teamwork, cooperation, fair play, and respect for others;
  • Keep healthy by getting active.

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.
Please help us to help you secure a place for your child in one of our Miniroos teams.  It is important to register early to help us organise teams, coaches and managers and games scheduling prior to the season starting.

All games are at Hilton Park on Saturday morning. (u5/6/7/8)

Role of a Parent

Much of the focus in junior sport on competition and winning is propagated by adults and is generally a construct of their own involvement in sport, not their child’s. As parents and coaches, we need to consider the kind of environment we are creating for our children and be mindful of the messages we are sending.
When a child comes home from a game is the first question you
ask: ‘Did you win?’ or is it ‘Did you have fun?

Parent Code of Behaviour:

The behaviour of players, their parents, spectators, officials and administrators is absolutely critical in ensuring that young players enjoy an appropriate environment in their formative years of playing football.
A couple of points to remember:

  • Remember that children participate in sport for their enjoyment, not yours;
    • Encourage children to participate, do not force them;
    • Focus on your child’s efforts and performance rather than whether they win or lose;
    • Encourage children to play according to the rules and to settle disagreements without resorting to hostility or violence;
    • Never ridicule or yell at a child for making a mistake or losing a competition;
    • Remember that children learn best by example.  Appreciate good performance and skilful plays by all participants;
    • Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from sporting activities;
    • Respect officials’ decisions and teach children to do likewise;
    • Show appreciation for volunteer coaches, officials and administrators without them, your child could not participate;
    and
    • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every young person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion

Have a great season in 2021!
