Mini-Roos Football (U6 - U11 years olds)

Mini-Roos is a modified form of 11-a-side football, structured to suitably address the needs of young 

players who have different developmental characteristics. 

 

The philosophy of Mini-Roos focuses on enjoyment and freedom of expression. This benefits children by 

making their early contact with the game more enjoyable while simultaneously providing an environment 

that will facilitate greater skill development. Mini-Roos allows participants, playing on smaller fields and with

small numbers to interact with the ball on more occasions and make less complicated tactical decisions. The 

result for participants is more fun (more successful interactions) and better skill/technique development.

Coaches and parents are encouraged not to give specific instruction to players throughout the matches to

allow players to make decisions for themselves.

 

Football Brisbane has introduced a ‘hub system’, which is tailored to suit the needs of individual 

players by providing the most suitable level for a player to participate.The three-tiered system 

(Geckos, Goannas and Komodo Dragons) provides a positive environment for players of all abilities by 

enabling children to play with and against other children of similar abilities, which fosters enjoyment as

well as development. Children develop at different rates and this process provides a development

pathway by catering for the different abilities of players whilst still focusing on fun and participation. The

following is an explanation of the three different hubs:

 

Geckos - Players in the team are of minimal skill or are new to the sport and need time to learn the rules

 and develop skills and teamwork.

 

Goannas - Players in the team have average skills, have played the sport previously and as such know the

 rules and how to play as a team and can engage in matches with minimal instruction from their coach.

 

Komodo Dragons - Players in the team have average to above average skills, have played the sport previously.  Matches are usually played with speed, skill and tactics. This level is ideally suited for players that aspire for such challenges and possess the requisite abilities.

 

SAP - These teams were selected prior to Christmas and will participate in the Football QLD and Football

 Brisbane competitions. These teams train 3 nights a week plus weekend games

 

 

Mini-Roos Field Days:

These days are designed to assist our team composition process. We will be using the field days as a 

guide to establish teams which will be as even as possible (particularly for our in-house competition) and to 

identify the best possible team composition to aid the development of players throughout the season. The 

field days are not designed to assess the individual ability or skill level of the players and there should be no 

added pressure placed on the children to ‘achieve’ a certain playing status.

 

Friendship groups:

One of the most important aspects of team selections at Logan in the past has been for players to be grouped

with their friends (particularly in the early years) where possible. This philosophy will continue and 

will be complimented by the processes outlined above. We acknowledge the importance of players having

an enjoyable and rewarding experience and we will do our best to accommodate player/parent requests 

where possible. Requests will not be considered for the Komodo Dragons or SAP teams.
