MiniRoos Football (U6-U11) Mixed Teams & Girls-Only Teams

MiniRoos is the NSFA program for juniors in the U6 to U11 age groups. The focus is on building skills, developing relationships and having fun! Mixed boys and girls teams and programs, and girls-only teams and programs are offered.

MiniRoos is focused on player development. The objective is to provide children with more opportunities to touch the ball during a game and give them greater opportunities to score goals. However, above all, it is about the children having fun every time they step out on the pitch, whilst they learn how to play the game.

The U6 to U8`s teams will mostly play across half the district, so the district will be split into two sections and you will play teams of generally comparable standards, once grading is completed.


Grading commences from the U8 age-group and is done up to 4-levels. Please see our grading information page and grading process.

Scores will be kept and sent to your club recorder, then sent to the NSFA for grading purposes. Competition results tables are not maintained. 

The U9-U11 age groups will play across the entire district. The girls-only teams will follow the same format on Sundays. 

  • U6–U7 teams are 4 per-side with no goalkeepers. Squads of 8-10 players, split into two teams playing simultaneous games across two adjoining fields (30m x 20m). Playing time is 20-minutes per half using a size 3 ball.

  • U8–U9 teams are 7 per-side teams with goalkeepers. Squads of 7–10 players, play on single field (40m x 30m). Playing time is 20 minutes per half using a size 3 ball.

  • U10–U11 teams are 9 per-side with goalkeepers. Squads of 9–13 players, play on a single field (60m x 40m). Playing time is 25-minutes per half using a size 4 ball.

  • All half-time breaks are 5-minutes.

Please refer the links below that provides detailed information on the MiniRoos program. We encourage all parents to make time to read these and become familiar with the program, rules, and regulations. This will aid all - and especially new-to-football - parents to better understand the program, the game, and support their team in an informed manner.

WPFC forms a range of MiniRoos teams each season depending on players’ registration preferences. For the most part, teams are coached, managed and refereed by parents (as volunteers) and making junior football participation a true family affair!!
