MiniRoos

Our MiniRoos encompasses ages 5-9 and our seasons commence on 30 April for our 5s-7s and on 23 April for our 8s and 9s.

Our MiniRoos program is predominantly an intra-club competition with all games held at Harrison Fields. GUFC teams play other GUFC teams for our U5s-U7s.

Our U8s and U9s may be involved in an inter-club competition which may require some travel around northern Canberra.

Registrations for MiniRoos are now CLOSED. To see if there are any spaces left in your age group you will need to email your Age Group Coordinator. Their details can be found here.

Age Group Coordinators

Each age group requires a dedicated Age Group Coordinator to help guide, coordinate and provide the extra information you need to get your season underway.  As soon as our Age Group Coordinators have been finalised for the 2022 season we will provide a link to our AGC list and contact details.

Would you like to be an age group coordinator? Email coach.coordinator@gufc.org.au 

 

Draw

The draws for our MiniRoos teams are distributed to Age Group Coordinators each week who will share them with teams. Additionally you can turn up to Harrison fields every Saturday in accordance with your weekly time slot, and allow plenty of time to view the draws on display (with field maps) on the outer wall at Harrison Clubhouse.

Coaches

Thank you to all of those parents and friends who have previously volunteered to coach our MiniRoos.  We have coach resources for those parents who put up their hand to coach.

Don’t have a coach yet? As with any community sports club we rely on the generosity of parents to ensure all teams have coaches every year.

To submit your interest in coaching please contact jobs@gufc.org.au or fill out this GUFC Coach Expression of Interest form and register as a volunteer via My Football (see the Registration page for instructions).

Map of the Mini Roos Playing Fields

A map of our grounds to show field setup for our MiniRoos can be found at the Clubhouse at Harrison Fields (Katoomba Street, Harrison) every weekend along with a list of where each team is playing.

Canteen

Our Canteen will be operational for our MiniRoos families of a Saturday morning.  Kev and his team look forward to serving you coffee and snacks as usual!

Uniform Checklist

Mini Roos will receive their 2022 player jersey prior to season kick-off.  Note: Due to cheaper fees for our U5s, U6s and U7s, jerseys will be a “wash and wear” borrowed jersey for these age groups.  These are returned at the end of each season. Our U8s and U9s will get to keep their jersey at the end of the season.

Each week our Mini Roos should arrive at the fields with:

  • Player jersey
  • Black shorts
  • Black football socks
  • Football boots (no sneakers – football boots are mandatory)
  • Shin pads (mandatory)
  • Drink bottle
  • Wear plenty of layers for warmth on the sideline and feel free to wear GUFC coloured under-layers if necessary.
  • Ensure you have hand sanitizer with you and remember not to come to the game if you exhibit symptoms of COVID or feel unwell, if you’ve recently visited a COVID hotspot or if you have been closely associated with someone from a hotspot.  Stop and say “I’ll stay away before I play”
