What is MiniRoos?

MiniRoos is an initiative developed by the Football Federation of Australia (FFA) for players aged 5-11 yrs played on smaller sized fields. Each year field sizes increase with age groups as well as the number of players in a team and duration of games. Games are designed to allow for the frequent interchange of players giving maximum game time and positional opportunities.

Here at UQFC, we have boys only, girls only as well as mixed teams at each age group.

How are teams selected?

U6, U7 and U8 are not graded and to maximize enjoyment are encouraged to form teams with friends or classmates. The U9-U11 age groups consist of 3 participation groupings based on skill level organized by Football Queensland. The groupings are called Geckos, Goannas and Komodo Dragons. These teams are formed based on the assessment of players by UQFC and our independent coaches throughout the previous season. Placing players of similar ability into teams ensures the best possible opportunity for players to develop their skills, self-esteem, and confidence.

How do I join a team?

If you are a returning player our MiniRoos Administrator will contact your team towards the end of the season to see if the players will moving up an age group. If yes, the players would be invited to Enrol for the next season. Places for existing players are guaranteed season to season.

If new to the club, places for new players can only be offered once a position in a team becomes available due to a player leaving a team. Due to high demand each season we cannot guarantee any positions for new players until February.

U6 teams will be formed with players who have completed the Expression of Interest link advertised at the end of the season; in the following order of priority:

When do we play and train?

MiniRoos fixtures are played on either Friday night or Saturday mornings and at UQFC we run an “in house” competition for U6, U7 and U8. All games are played at our junior grounds at Cubberla Creek Reserve, Kenmore.

U6-U11 MiniRoos Season starts: Friday, April 2021 (to be confirmed) as set by Football Brisbane each season.

U6: 5:30 or 6:15pm kick offs – 4v4 on Friday evening
U7: 8am kick offs – 4v4 on Saturday morning
U8: 9am kick offs – 7v7 on Saturday morning

U9 (7v7), U10 (9v9) and U11 (9v9) age groups participate in competitions administered through Football Queensland (FQ) with a home and away ground format in which kick off times vary. MiniRoos train once per week.

There are no set training times for MiniRoos due to number of teams at the club and varies from 3.45pm, 4.45pm & a 6.00pm start across 5 venues in the local area. Training times are confirmed after the team is formed and a coach and manager have volunteered. Space for training is allocated on the coach’s availability and field space at that time. We cannot guarantee first preference for training times for all teams. MiniRoos teams are generally scheduled in the afternoon with Junior Teams (U12-U16) training in the evening.
