All the GDSFA member clubs offer soccer football for ages between 4 and 11 years via the Aldi MiniRoos program. MiniRoos is a modified game played on smaller fields with fewer players. The program which has been implemented nationwide with the assistance of Football Federation Australia (FFA) and Football NSW is designed to help children discover the game in a non-competitive environment, thus optimising the opportunity for an enjoyable experience.
The MiniRoos Club Football uses small sided games (4v4 – for under 6’s and 7’s, 7v7 – for under 8’s and 9’s & 9v9 – for under 10’s and 11’s) rather than the traditional 11v11 format to cater to 4-11 year olds. 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 suite their stage of development and prepare them for the transition to 11v11 football when the time comes.
