Most boys and girls aged Under 6 to Under 11 play in a non-competitive league known as Miniroos. We also offer development-focussed players aged U8 to U11, the opportunity to play in the Skill Acquisition Phase (SAP) League.
Miniroos (U6 to U11)
Smiling, giggling, celebrating….this is our aim each weekend for MiniRoos players. At Kissing Point FC, you will see parents encouraging, supporting and cheering both sets of players each weekend, creating a positive and enjoyable MiniRoos experience.
Players take part in small sided games with modified field sizes and playing numbers. As a player progresses through the MiniRoos age groups the field size increases as well as player numbers, preparing them eventually for the full size field version of 11v11 football.
Each game has a Game Leader who facilitates the game, ensuring all players stay true to the rules and everyone is included and enjoying themselves. Games follow the national playing formats and rules.
Training is one night a week. The current schedule is here.
Mixed teams play on Saturdays and Girls teams on Sundays. There is also an introductory program on Sunday mornings for girls turning 5, 6, and 7. For more information about girls football, click here.

SAP League (U8 to U11)
If your player is keen to develop their skills, Skill Acquisition Phase (SAP) could be for them. SAP is the top division for the U8-U11 age groups at community football level. It is a pathway to rep football (Northern Tigers) for talented players, and involves:
- 15 team competitions from 12 clubs in each age group
- Under 8 to Under 11 age groups in 2021
- Minimum training twice per week with an experienced and certified coach
- Overseen by an experienced and certified Technical Director and Club Coach Coordinator
- Occasional training sessions and games with Northern Tigers teams
- Games played at set locations including Gala Days
- Training at Howson and Auluba ovals (subject to NSFA allocations)
For each SAP team, we hope to also form a DEV (development) team, which also has twice-weekly training, towards providing further opportunity for development focussed players. Players will be graded into either SAP or Dev according to past performance and trial results. We also plan to have Community teams for each age group (with training once a week).
SAP/DEV does not diminish the community/participation aspect of football that is important at Kissing Point FC. It provides a pathway for talented players to play the highest levels of football without having to leave the club.
There will be additional costs associated with SAP and DEV teams to support coaching. And there are expectations on players in terms of attendance and attitude at training and game days. It is the best possible learning environment for young players to increase their football skills and play the best teams from other participating clubs.
SAP/Dev teams will be largely finalised late November or early December, although some players may be taken on later. Detailed information on coaching and costs will be provided.
There are additional costs associated with SAP teams to support coaching payments. In addition, there are expectations on players in terms of attendance and attitude at training and game days. Our aim is for these teams to be the best possible learning environment for young players to increase their football skills and play the best teams from other participating clubs.
Trials for SAP teams are held in November. For more information, email our friendly VP for Miniroos.
