Aldi MiniRoos (Under 6 - 11)

Aldi MiniRoos is a smaller version of football designed to introduce players to the world game in a fun format.

2021 Season

The season calendar is yet to be published. Sign on day for new players will be Saturday 5th February 9-11am at the club house. Please see the calendar page for muster night and carnival dates.

What age group does my child participate in?

Players play in the age group according to the age they turn in the 2021 calendar year, e.g. a player who turns 8 in 2021 will participate in Under 8s.

Can my child play outside their age group?

Your child can play into an age group one year above their current age group if required. This is at the discretion of the club and may be necessary due to player numbers or particular player requests and will be considered on a case by case basis.

Players are not able to play into an age level below their age group.

Komodo Grading - Under 9 - Under 11

In the Under 9 to Under 11 age groups, Football Brisbane runs the competition in three divisions, Geckos, Goannas and then Komodos.  In season 2021, we will be offering the opportunity for teams in these age groups to play in the Komodo division (the highest division).  More information will be provided regarding this when registrations open.

Girls only teams

In Season 2020 our all girls team played in the Under 12 Girls Division 3 and were successful in winning the premiership.  In Season 2021 we are looking to form all girls teams in other age groups and will give girls the option to request to play in an all girls team and, if there are sufficient numbers, we will enter an all girls team in other age groups.

There will be no requirement for girls to enter an all girls team and if they wish to play in a mixed team, they will be welcome to do so.

Under 6 and 7

Under 6 and 7 MiniRoos is designed to allow maximum participation by all players on the team. They are played on small fields, with smaller goals and teams do not play goal keepers. This is the first step for players and it is intended that players develop the basic skills required to play football in a fun and engaging environment.

Four players are on the field for each team at any time. Teams consist of 5 to 6 players allowing 1 or 2 players as substitutes throughout the game. The aim is that all players play an equal amount of time throughout the game.

Games are played in 15 minute halves with a 5 minute half time break.

Oxley United participates in the Football Brisbane draw and fixtures are allocated by Football Brisbane. Games are usually on a home and away basis on a Saturday morning and games are usually not more than 15 minutes drive away.

Teams usually train once a week at a time determined by the team on muster day at a time to suit most players in the team. Managers and coaches for Under 6 and 7 are parents of players in the team and are provided with support by Oxley United FC.

Under 8 and 9

Under 8 and 9 MiniRoos are played on larger fields than Under 6 and 7. Goal keepers are introduced in Under 8s. 

Seven players are on the field for each team at any time. Teams consist of 9 or 10 players allowing 2 or 3 players as substitutes throughout the game. The aim is that all players play an equal amount of time throughout the game.
