U8 - U11 MiniRoos

For these age categories it's all about development. Coaching wise we are looking at the big four; 1v1, running with the ball, striking and first touch. Experience wise we are looking to develop mateship and sportsman like qualities. All players are graded into three levels and no matter what level you are we aim to give you a great experience. The club insists that all volunteer coaches are FQ Certified (Grassroots or Skill Trainer) to ensure we are instilling the correct curriculum and each player receiving the same football input.

The costs of participation includes the FQ coaching certificate course for the coach and an individual trophy for representing The Reds.

2019 Cost $460 (match day referee costs included)
