ALDI MiniRoos is designed for kids of all abilities, aged 4 – 11 years.
The nation-wide initiative uses short, game-based sessions to introduce the sport of football to newcomers in an inclusive way.
It focuses on learning new skills, being active, making life-long friends and, potentially, unearthing the next generation of Socceroos or Matildas.
Aldi MiniRoos - Kick-Off Program
ALDI MiniRoos Kick-Off programs have been developed in line with the game-sense philosophy of sport participation.
This approach to sport delivery emphasises a move away from traditional coach dominated sessions to those that are player centred, and use game-like situations rather than technical drills.
This type of environment teaches the fundamentals of a sport in a fun, engaging, and inclusive environment that focuses on enjoyment rather than results. It should be no surprise to parents that the more fun their child has, the more likely they are to continue playing.
This is the overarching tenet that guides ALDI MiniRoos Kick-Off.
