Miniroos (Age 6-11)

Miniroos - Under 6 to Under 8


When:Training one night a week and games are Saturday mornings (depending on grading).

Where:Games for the U6 age group is at Mitchie in an internal competition, U7 & U 8 in this group may play in a local competition against clubs in our area (Samford, Pine Hills etc).

Players in these ages can play with their friends or be allocated to a team if necessary. Each team has a Coach and a Manager, both of whom are usually the parents of a player in that team. Training focuses on the very basic skills of ball control, passing and running. Games are played on a reduced pitch with small goals. There is no positional play or goal keeper and no results are kept. Participation and fun are essential elements at this level. For more information about this level go here

Miniroos - Under 9 to Under 11


When:Training one or two nights a week with games on Saturdays 

Where:Games are at home and away at other clubs

These age groups will be graded into three levels from Under 9, depending on developmental stage. The three levels are:
  • Gecko (beginner)
  • Goanna (Intermediate) and 
  • Komodo (Advanced).
It is important to remember that children develop physically and emotionally at very different rates. Being placed in one level doesn't mean they will stay at that level in the future. The purpose of grading is for players to be able to train and play against others at their developmental level. This will keep their confidence up while they work on their skills and fitness. The pitch increases in size with each age group, up to a half full pitch. A goalie and some positional play is also introduced to these age groups. For more information about this level go here. Each team will have a Coach and a Manager, both of whom will usually be a parent of a player in the team. 


NOTE: Girls will play in mixed teams in Miniroos, however they will receive extra support and mentoring from senior women (players and coaches) within the club periodically throughout the season. We will also hold special coaching and social events for girls in these age groups.

Skills Aquisition Program (Age 9-12)

Skills Acquisition Program (SAP) - Under 9 to Under 12 (boys and girls)


When:Training two and even three nights a week with games on weekends

Where:Games are at home and away against other SAP clubs


SAP was introduced to Queensland approximately five years ago and refers to a specific program that at its core focuses on developing four important skills to a high level of execution, 1 v 1, striking the ball, running with the ball and first touch (controlling the ball when receiving it). The SAP program has been used very successfully throughout South America, Europe and Asia for many years. The program is open to boys and girls who must be selected through a specific trial process, which are advertised and usually occur shortly after the September school holidays. Teams are coached by specially qualified Coaches and training / game environments are much more rigorous and demanding than Miniroos in the same age groups, which is why SAP is a player pathway for those looking to play at higher levels when they are older. For further information about the SAP program, go here

Metro Divisional teams (Age 12-18)


When:Training one or two nights a week with games on weekends

Where:Games are at home and away against other clubs
