At Football Smarts Academy, we offer a range of programs for players that fall into the "Miniroos" category. This group includes Under 6s through to Under 11s. 


WEEKLY SESSIONS in 2023 are on. Term 2 dates are up. See May 1 and May 2 onwards. 

We are running sessions now at Karinya in Blackwood in 2023. Sessions for MiniRoos aged between U6-U11 are now offered. Players will be able to come straight from school and experience football fun between 3.40-4.30 each Monday and Tuesday. Players can book for both days (but don't have to do both). Spots are strictly limited to 15 players per coach.



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. U6 players should make contact first before enrolling, come and see us and we can talk about how we can best help with the cohort we have. 


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. 

U11-U16 players will be able to register for sessions on Monday and Tuesday between 4.40-5.30. Please send an email to to ask and questions about Term 1 or book your child in. 

If you would like to nominate a child outside of their age group (into an older or younger group, please get in touch and coaches can look at each case on merit). 

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