Miniroos Football

Welcome back to last year’s players and a warm welcome to all our new players. We hope you are all keen as mustard to learn and play the beautiful game of football and most of all have lots of fun!

Below you will find a quick reference guide for the mixed miniroos players (U6 – U11):

REGISTRATION

You can register online by following the prompts for registration.

When you register your child, (s)he will be registered in the age group of their age in this calendar year. This means that if your child turns 7 some time this year, (s)he will be registered in U7. The minimum age to play is 5, so your child must turn 5 in this calendar year. Proof of DOB must be presented if you are registering for the first time. If you have missed the registration day, please present it at another preseason event.

If you have a daughter who would prefer to play in the Sunday competition (girls only), go to Girls G7-G18 for more information.

PRESEASON

During this time players are graded and organised into teams; having players registered ahead of the grading process is therefore of paramount importance. Please read the KPFC Grading FAQ. It is important to prepare yourself as well as your child so that everyone knows what to expect from this process. Please check the Calendar of events for your grading timeslot.

U6s, U7s and U8s will not attend Grading Day. These players are predominantly arranged into teams based on friend requests at the time of registration. However, it is not necessary to make a friend request for your child and experience shows us that players quickly form friendships within their team.

Players wear a KPFC shirt (to be returned at the end of the season) which will be handed out at the clubhouse at a specified time. KPFC shorts and socks can be purchased online or from the clubhouse at a specified time. We also have a boot exchange box: bring any size second-hand boots that are in a reasonable condition and you may get lucky with a second-hand bigger size.

Players are expected to provide their own football for training (U6 – U9: Size 3; U10 – U11: Size 4).

Teams will be announced via email. Training times will be discussed via email. Training will be held at a specified time and ground during the week (45 mins for U6 to U7; 1 hr for U8 to U11). The training schedule is available on the website but this is subject to change until the season starts. In 2016 we will be engaging T3-Australia to lead and guide our volunteer parent coaches to introduce a skills-based structure to our once-per-week training schedule – details can be found here.

The KPFC Coaches & Managers evening will be held on Friday the 18th of March, which will set out the roles and responsibilities of Coaches & Managers. The team kits have to be collected at this time. They contain match balls, training cones, bibs, pump, ice pack, etc. and need to be returned in good condition on Presentation Day.

Due to the varying football formats outside our area, the Miniroos are not included in any trial matches you may see advertised on our website. However, KPFC holds a Miniroos Gala Day and more information will be added as it becomes available.

You will find the start date of the season for your age group in the Calendar of Events. The season finishes with a NSFA (former KDSA) gala day. Games will be played each Saturday except for the middle weekends of the April and July school holidays.

COMMUNITY FOOTBALL CLUB

KPFC is a club run by volunteers so we rely on all parents’ help in the following areas:

  • Helping in the canteen on Fri and Sat
  • Dressing/undressing the local match ground
  • Helping out with the merchandise stall
  • Helping out at fundraising events
  • Coaching/managing your children’s teams

A roster will be sent out to each team manager by start of the season for canteen duty but on occasion you will be asked to volunteer for other duties as well. Please make yourself known and help out where you can. We look forward to working with you as a club and your assistance will be greatly appreciated!

Don’t forget to check the Calendar of Events for other important dates.
