Juniors U5-7's MiniRoos 'Kick-Off'

About Miniroos Kick-Off

NEW! Curtin Football's MiniRoos 'Kick-Off' was recently featured on Football West's "Football 360" program! Watch the video below (youtube link):

Curtin Football is a registered FFA MiniRoos 'Kickoff' Centre. MiniRoos uses short, game-based sessions to introduce football to newcomers in a fun and inclusive way.

We create an environment that is fun, engaging, and inclusive and focuses on enjoyment rather than results. It should be no surprise to parents that the more fun their child has, the more likely they are to continue playing.

Who is it for?
  • Boys and girls born in 2009-2011
  • Children that want to play football in a fun, team environment.
What does it look like?
  • Team-based games of 4v4 on a small pitch
  • Modified rules to promote inclusiveness, engagement and technical ability

Questions & Answers

  • Q: "Why do the kids get a voucher this year and not last year?"
  • A: This year, Football West reduced the cost to register a MKO player. It was decided that these funds should be channelled toward providing the players with socks and shorts, following feedback from parents that this would be consistent with the older kids and make the kids feel more like part of Curtin Football club.
  • Q: "Why is my voucher format different to kids in Under 8's and up?"
  • A: Unlike the older kids, Under 5-7's are not allocated an FFA number, meaning their voucher code takes the format of their date of birth, in the 8-digit format: DDMMYYYY e.g. 26012000
  • Q: "Do the kids wear an orange playing shirt?"
  • A: Yes, following feedback from parents that kids would feel more like they are part of the club, orange shirts will be loaned to kids for them to wear on Sunday 'Game Day'. Shirts will be handed out in week 2-3 and you will be required to be signed up to Curtin Football Team App to record your details for the shirt's return at the end of the season.
