What is MiniRoos?

MiniRoos Kick-Off programs take a player-centred approach and use game-like situations rather than technical drills.

This environment teaches the fundamentals of a sport in a fun, engaging, and inclusive manner that focuses on effort and enjoyment rather than just results.

Club coaches take an holistic approach and sessions are designed not only to improve children’s movement and ball skills but also other physical literacy elements across the psychological, social, and cognitive domains.

Key points

  • MiniRoos is a fun, safe introductory program designed for players aged between 4 and 11.
  • Several games are used to build skills and simple exercises are delivered in an engaging and inclusive environment.
  • Every player gets plenty of time on the ball and the prime aim of each session is for children to build fundamental motor skills.
