Step 1 - Understand the key dates
Registrations close Friday 24 March 2023
Games start on Saturday 29 April 2023 (Week 1 of Term 2) and run through to 2 September with presentations on the following Saturday. Matches are not scheduled during the July school holidays or the Sovereign's birthday long weekend.
Teams will be rostered to have their photos across two Saturdays - 20th May and 27th May (Reconciliation Day weekend).
Step 2 - Understand age groups
The club runs club-based Open (mixed) competitions in the U6 to U9 age groups and Girls competitions in the U8 to U9 age groups.
Players should generally register for the age which they are turning in 2022, or the year they are in at school:
|Birth year||Age group||School year|
Children born in 2018 enrolled in Kindergarten at Primary School this year, may register in U6.
Step 3 - Team preferences
While every effort is made to fulfill special requests regarding team placement, this is not always possible
MiniRoos players are generally placed into teams using three criteria:
- Retaining the same teams from previous years
- Playing with friends
- Playing with children from the same school
If you like would to play with a specific group of children, please include your team preferences in the Additional Questions part of the PlayFootball registration process.
If you intend coaching or managing a team, recruit your team and ask parents to include that information when registering i.e. they wish to participate in the team coached by "xxx" or managed by "yyy" or playing with child "vvv" from "St Judes Primary School Year 2" etc. The more detail the better as it helps us to place your child in the correct team.
In each team, there is an absolute maximum of 6 players in under 6s and 7s and 9 players in under 8s and 9s. Having only one or two extra players on the sideline maximises the game time for each players and keeps "equal game time" simple.

Coaches and managers
Note that all coaches and managers for MiniRoos are required to register (free of charge) and to hold a Working With Vulnerable People card or have applied for one.
Step 5 - Come to the MiniRoos skills sessions
The club will be running MiniRoos skills sessions on the following Saturdays:
4,11,18,25 February, 4 March and 1 April.
The program is free and will enable children to develop skills while the club confirms the team formations for the season.
All registered U6 to U9 players are encouraged to attend. NOTE: if your child is not registered by midday on the Friday before one of these sessions are scheduled, they cannot attend until the next scheduled session (no exceptions). This is due to the high volume of players participating and we need to prepare equipment and coaches the night beforehand. Many thanks for your understanding.
Sessions are 45 minutes and the times for specific age groups are below:
All players MUST wear shinpads and bring their own water bottle.
The club's COVIDsafe plan must be followed:
- If your child is feeling unwell they should stay at home
- All players must bring their own water bottle
- Parents/guardians are encouraged to wait in the car
- Parents/guardians on the grounds must apply the 1.5m social distancing rule
- You must leave the venue after the session ends
Step 6 - Get ready for kick off!
All MiniRoos U6-U9 games are held on Saturdays at the Waramanga Playing Fields.
Your child's Coach or Team Manager will provide information about training.
Draws will be available closer to the start of the season.
