Mini Roos Football (U6 - U11 years)

Mini-Roos Football (U6 - U11 years olds)

Mini-Roos is a modified form of 11-a-side football, structured to suitably address the needs of young players who have different developmental characteristics. 


The philosophy of Mini-Roos focuses on enjoyment and freedom of expression. This benefits children by making their early contact with the game more enjoyable while simultaneously providing an environment that will facilitate greater skill development. Mini-Roos allows participants, playing on smaller fields and with small numbers to interact with the ball on more occasions and make less complicated tactical decisions. The result for participants is more fun (more successful interactions) and better skill/technique development. Coaches and parents are encourage not to give specific instruction to players throughout the matches to allow players to make decision for themselves.


Football Brisbane has introduced a ‘hub system’, which is tailored to suit the needs of individual players by providing the most suitable level for a player to participate.  The three tiered system (Goannas, Komodo Dragons and SAP) provides a positive environment for players of all abilities by enabling children to play with and against other children of similar abilities, which fosters enjoyment as well as development.  Children develop at different rates and this process provides a development pathway by catering for the differing abilities or players whilst still focusing on fun and participation.  The following is an explanation of the three different hubs.



Goannas - Players in the team have minimal skills, may be new to the sport or have played the sport previously and as such may know the rules and how to play as a team and can engage in matches with some instruction from their coach.


Komodo Dragons - Players in the team have average to above average skills and have played for a number of years.  Matches are usually played with speed, skill and tactics.  This level is ideally suited for players that aspire for such challenges and possess the requisite abilities.


SAP – These teams were selected prior to Christmas and will participate in the Football Qld and Football Brisbane competitions. These teams train 3 nights a week plus weekend games



·                     U6 – U8 is an Inhouse Competition


·                     U9 – U11 is a Competition run by Football Brisbane where you travel to other clubs to play.


Mini-Roos Field Days:


These days are designed to assist our team composition process.  We will be using the field days as a guide to establish teams which will be as even as possible (particularly for our in-house competition) and to identify the best possible team composition to aid the development of players throughout the season.  The field days are not designed to assess the individual ability or skill level of the players and there should be no added pressure placed on the children to ‘achieve’ a certain playing status.


Friendship groups:


One of the most important aspects of team selections at Logan FC in the past has been for players to be grouped with their friends (particularly in the early years) where possible.  This philosophy will continue and will be complimented by the processes outlined above.  We acknowledge the importance of players having an enjoyable and rewarding experience and we will do our best to accommodate player/parent requests where possible. Requests will not be considered for the Komodo Dragons or SAP teams.
