(Kindy Football Programme)

Next year will see a transition from Squirts, which concludes in 2016, to MiniRoos Kick-Off, Australia’s national introductory football program.

Kick-Off is designed for boys and girls that are new to the sport and provides a stepping stone to the team-based MiniRoos Club Football (ages 5-11).

Football Federation Australia has given Queensland clubs special dispensation to register players for Kick-Off from as young as 3-years-old as we transition away from Squirts.

Do you have child keen to learn a new safe sport in a fun, friendly environment? Then our AIA Vitality MiniRoos Kick-Off program is just right for you.

The weekly sessions are the perfect introduction to the world’s most popular game for boys and girls aged between 3 and 5. Children are given a ball and have a ball!

Coaches take the class through a series of football drills that focus on fun before sticking on bibs and playing a match in the 45 minute sessions.

Every player gets plenty of time on the ball and the prime aim of each session is for children to build fundamental motor skills in a fun, engaging, and inclusive environment.

Each child also receives a AIA Vitality MiniRoos Participant Pack when they register.

What are the benefits of signing up your children to a Kick-Off program?

  • Make new friends and develop social skills.
  • Develop values of team work, co-operation, fair play, and respect for others.
  • Develop a child’s ability to make quick decisions and improve reaction time.
  • Keep healthy by getting active.

What are the benefits for parents?

  • Time friendly sessions and locations.
  • A nationally consistent program delivered by trained coaches.
  • Personal accident insurance provided.
  • Constant supervision for your children in a fun, safe, welcoming environment.
