Under 6s to Under 11s (MiniRoos)
Who is it for?
Under 6s to Under 11s.
The age group a player qualifies for is based on their age as at 31st December of the previous year.
However, special dispensation may be granted by the association based on the year at school or other special circumstances. Generally, a player may only register in Mixed MiniRoos if they are four (4) years of age or older as at midnight on the 31st December of the previous year. It is also a recommendation that no player should play in an age group more than two (2) years higher than they are qualified for.
To give some examples:
We also have Development Squads in the U7 to U11 age groups. You can read more about these on the Development Squads page.
A small sided game is simply football with fewer players competing on a smaller size field. What is good about it is that it allows players to have more contact with the ball because fewer players are playing in a smaller playing area. This is important for two reasons:
When are games on?
Matches take place on Saturdays (for mixed teams) or Sundays (for girls only teams) and are generally aligned with Terms 2 and 3 of school. This year the season starts on Saturday 1 April 2017 for mixed teams and Sunday 2 April 2017 for girls only teams.
Game times vary between (and within) each age group. There are no games or training during school holidays (but we do hold coaching clinics during the holidays).
What about training?
Training takes place once a week. Please check the Juniors/Youth training schedule.
How much does it cost for the season?
The fees for 2018 are as follows:
The fee includes:
The fee does not include football boots or shin pads. These can be bought from Olympus Sports in Neutral Bay who offer a discount to North Sydney United players.
How do I register?
You may be able to choose which team your child is placed in, including forming your own team or nominating friends to be in the same team. Registration is available through the MyFootballClub website.
Once registered, what happens?
An Age Coordinator or Team Manager will be in touch with you to let you know about training and other arrangements.
