Age qualification

The age group the player is qualified to play for in the current year depends on the age of the

player at 1 January of the current year e.g., if a player turns 13 in January 2012 that player

plays in the Under 13’s in 2012. However, if a player turned 13 in December 2011, then that

player plays in the Under 14's in 2012.

Small sided football (Miniroos)

Small sided football applies from the under 5 to under 11 age groups as part of the National Curriculum promoted by the Football Federation of Australia. Small sided football are football games designed especially for children, with fewer players competing on a smaller-sized field. Players have more contact with the ball because fewer players are playing in a smaller playing area. Small sided football meets the developmental needs of younger football players whilst maintaining a strong focus on maximum participation and enjoyment. As the players get older, the field size and number of players on the field increases and the rules change slightly. This is to introduce them slowly to the laws of football which govern the matches played by the older small sided games and full field competition teams.
