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-9s 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 an U15s Development Squad which both link to our NPL stream.
Registrations for our Community Juniors and our MiniRoos are NOW OPEN.
To Register for a Community Juniors team, click here. This 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 or 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.
We will be able to provide kick-off times per age group as soon as our coordinators have finalised them.
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 April). https://capitalfootball.com.au/competitions/ Training for our 10s-18s will be advised as soon as we’ve been given field allocations by the ACT Government and our Grounds Coordinators have allocated grounds to age groups.
Our Juniors and Mini Roos will wear the brand new Umbro Gungahlin Gold and black personalised jersey (which you get as part of your registration) along with black shorts and black socks which you supply yourself. While we prefer players wear Umbro shorts and socks we do understand that you may have black shorts/socks of another brand in your wardrobe already. If you don’t, we partner with REBEL for all your Umbro needs. Don’t forget to become a REBEL member and let them know your play for GUFC.
ALL players are required to wear football boots and shin pads (mandatory).
For information about uniforms see our Registration page.
