Information for Parents
All Minis Football sessions run Saturday mornings, starting at 09:00 at the Omokoroa Sports Grounds on Western Ave. We are based on the bottom fields (in front of the Pavilion and Tennis Courts).
The 2020 season runs from May to June (Term 2) and starts again in term 3 – July – September
We happily accept new Mini’s registrations through the season, so pop down and give it a go!
Communications will be posted on our Facebook page throughout the season. This is where we will post cancellations due to weather. Parents, please share your photos and thoughts with us.
Typically a session will run from 09:00 – 10:30. The session will follow the following format –
- 10 minutes warm up.
- Then split the group into their grades. 4 x different drill stations will be available and each group will spend 10 minutes at each drill station and then rotate. These drill stations will compromise shooting skills, passing skills, dribbling skills, etc. Designed to be fun and interactive for the kids to get used to basics of football.
- Have a break for some food and drink
- Play a game within their grades – the part the kids enjoy the most!
The Mini’s Grades are as follows:
Grade 5 – for kids turning 5 at some point this year. Please note we do have some 4 years old’s participating as well.
Grade 6 – for kids turning 6 at some point this year
Grade 7 – for kids turning 7 at some point this year
Playing shirts are provided to all players, however you can also purchase Shorts $28 | Socks $15 (these must be purchased through Friendly Manager)
Please register online with NZ Football’s COMET system with an account for your child as everyone needs one and it puts the children under the club for age and names.
Please contact the club ([email protected]) if you have any questions or want to get involved with the running of the club or coaching!
