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 Subway Socceroos or CommBank Matildas.

MiniRoos Player Pathway

The MiniRoos Player Pathway has been created to identify the standard process a participant would follow as they transition through the existing products under the MiniRoos banner. It also works to help identify the proper product for a participant that is dependent on age, ability and overall engagement in football.
