Miniroos in 2018

Aldi MiniRoos, is a smaller version of football that provides boys and girls aged 4 - 11 with a fun introduction to football. Aldi MiniRoos is designed for kids; it is all about having fun, learning new skills and making life-long friends.

Delivered by grassroots clubs all across Australia, Aldi MiniRoos provides opportunities for boys and girls of all abilities, shapes and sizes to play football.

The progression through the Aldi MiniRoos formats of 4v4, 7v7 and 9v9 is a sound educational method and process to ready young children to play 11v11. The progression helps players discover the differences in the size of the field and size of the goal and the benefits of having more space. It also helps children to learn to use different and well-developed techniques to play a more tactical game, as well as assisting them in understanding the role of different positions and determining what best suits them.

Note, the Gladesville Hornsby Football Association (which PennoFC is a member) varies some of the National rules to suit our local competition and environment. Where information differs between the GHFA Rules and the National Rules, the GHFA Rules apply.
