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 for Term 4 are almost done. Programs will be offered in Term 1, 2024. Keep an eye out for spaces as Term IV has sold out in most age groups.
We will continue to be running sessions at Karinya in Blackwood in 2024. Sessions for MiniRoos aged between U6-U11 are offered. Players are 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. 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. Any U7 players wishing to enrol on a Tuesday in 2024 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.
Program: Ball mastery, 1v1, first touch, running with the ball, striking the ball (shooting and passing), teamwork.
2023 DATES are below. Term 4 dates show remaining sessions. Please enquire about discount on remaining sessions.
