The first round is drawing very near and we are sure there are hundreds of very excited Miniroos players and parents counting down the days until kick-off this Saturday, 1st April. Please refer to the important information below.
Match Ball & Game Leader whistles:
The home team coach/ manager each week (the team listed as the ‘Home’ team on the draw) are to collect the game day match ball from committee at the equipment area for use during their game. The away team coach/ manager are to return the game ball at the completion of the game. Whistles will be provided to each team for use during the season.
Player of the Week Trophies:
Penrith Toyota, who are our proud sponsor of all U5-U7 Miniroos teams, are once again providing player of the week trophies to all U5-7 teams. Could the team coach or manager please collect their teams trophy on Saturday morning from the Toyota gazebo.
Thank you Penrith Toyota for your ongoing sponsorship of our Miniroos!
Game Day Coaching & Game Leader (Instructional referee)
The ‘Game Leader’ is the only person permitted on the field of play during the game to instruct both teams players over the course of the match. Both team coaches must remain on the sidelines with team subs where they will coach from and coordinate the team changes.
A reminder that as there are no goal keepers in U5-7 age groups and no off-sides, please ensure players do not ‘hold fort’ in your goal mouth all match and likewise, no attacking player to stand wait in the goal of the opposition team. Miniroos is all about each player getting as many touches on the ball as possible. Standing players at each end of the field will limit the touches to them and is also not in the best spirit of the game. The recommended team formation is 1:2:1 i.e. 1 fullback, 2 midfielders and 1 striker/attacker. However that usually turns into a roaming 4 which, for the uninitiated, is a sight to behold!
Miniroos rules are attached for all members to be aware NFA MiniRoos Regulations 2016.1
We hope all Miniroos players, whether first timers or now 1 to 2 year seasoned little Socceroos enjoy their first kick and they continue the fun throughout the entire season at ‘The Nest’.
