Our Community Juniors and Mini Roos programs offer football from ages 5 through to 18. The aim of our Community Juniors and Mini Roos is to ensure an inclusive and fun environment, with the opportunity for our players to gain skill and choose a more competitive route should they wish.
GUFC is one of the largest Junior clubs in Canberra and possibly one of the largest in Australia. We offer divisional competitions for U10s-U18s as well as a MiniRoos intra-club program for our 5s-8s age groups and inter-club competition for some 8s and 9s teams. When numbers allow, we also field girls only competitions in some age groups. Our Community Juniors includes our brand new Pathways Program and our newly created U15s Development Squad which both link to our NPL stream.
Registrations for our Community Juniors and our MiniRoos are still open for SOME age groups. See table below for vacancies.

To Register for a Community Juniors team, click here. The above link provides all the information you need regarding costs, age groups, uniforms and how to register. Games are played of a Saturday with the U9 age group and up having one – two training sessions per- week. Ages U8 and down don’t have additional training, as they learn the game and gain skill during their Saturday games.

From ages 10 to 18 approximately half of your games will be held at our home grounds at Harrison Fields. The other half will require travel to other areas of the ACT/region. Fixtures for these age groups are handled by Capital Football (draws will be available in late April). https://capitalfootball.com.au/competitions/
Our Juniors and Mini Roos wear the Gungahin Gold personalised jersey (which you get as part of your registration) along with black Nike shorts and black socks which you can buy yourself. All players are required to wear football boots and shin pads (mandatory). For information about uniforms see our Registration page. Keep an eye on Facebook and newsletters for advice and updates.
