MINIROOS

PROGRAMS

At Football Smarts Academy, we offer a range of programs for players that fall into the "Miniroos" category. This group includes Under 7s through to Under 11s. 

WEEKLY SESSIONS

WEEKLY SESSIONS are back!  Programs will be offered in Term 2, 2024.  In Term 2 and 3 only Mondays are offered for this age group.  Term 4 will see the return of the Tuesday session. 

We will continue to be running sessions at Karinya in Blackwood in 2024. Sessions for MiniRoos aged between U8-U11/12 are offered. Players are able to come straight from school and experience football fun between 3.40-4.30 each Monday. Spots are strictly limited. Please email and you can be given an up to date price and code to register for the remaining weeks if you miss the start of a term. 

 

There are two major elements of these sessions: 

1) Ignition: we aim to help IGNITE or further add to a love of the game. Nothing is more important than a young player loving the game. 

2) Technique: We aim to guide the player towards using the fundamental techniques required to play the game effectively, and to enjoy the game. 

Program: Ball mastery, 1v1, first touch, running with the ball, striking the ball (shooting and passing), teamwork. 

Academy structure for Term 2, 2024. Start date: April 29
