Full calendar

Miniroos (Under 6 to Under 12)

All Under 6 to Under 12 players are called ‘Miniroos’. Games are played on a small sized pitch with less players per team than standard 11-aside football teams (i.e. 4v4, 7v7, 9v9) and modified rules to promote inclusiveness, engagement and technical ability. Games in this competition are typically played on Saturday, either within a local hub or through Football Queensland coordinated matches.

There are no competitive tables or points scoring for any Miniroos teams – participation, development and enjoyment are the key goals.

All girl teams and competitions are available from U8's through to U12's. Girls can still play in mixed teams if they prefer.

U6 and U7

Teams  comprise of mixed boys and girls, and where possible teams are formed based on friendship groups. There are 6-7 players in a team, with 4 players on the field and coaches are typically parents. Games are played on a Saturday morning against other Samford teams and also teams from the local area, Dayboro, Pine Hills and Westside Grovely. 

U8

All girls' teams commence at U8's. We look to keep teams together from prior seasons and "play with friends" request will be accommodated where possible. There are 9-10 players in a team, with 7 players on the field and coaches are typically parents. Games are played on a Saturday morning against teams from a wider catchment.

Trials are held for children who want to try out for the Kangaroo team only. Kangaroos is the highest level of football in U8's and selection is based on player capability. 

U9

Grading (refer below) commences at this age group and teams are formed based on player ability. There are 9-10 players in a team, with 7 players on the field and coaches are typically parents. Games are played on a Saturday morning against teams from a wider catchment.

U10-12

Teams are graded when there is more then 1 team.  The club looks to place players in the teams that best reflect their development stage and skill level. There are typically 12 players to a team, with 9 players on the field.

Teams play on a Saturday (Academy teams may also play on a Sunday) against teams from a wider catchment depending on the playing category (FQ Academy, Kangaroo, Wallaby, Quokka).  


Training Nights

U6 - U7 train on Wednesday evenings at Parklands.

U8 - U9 train on Wednesday evenings at Parklands.

U9 Kangaroo train on a Tuesday and Thursday

U10, U11 and U12 train on Monday evenings at Parklands. Some teams will also train on Wednesday evenings.

U10 Academy and Kangaroo teams train on a Monday and Wednesday

U11 and U12 Academy and Kangaroos teams train on a Tuesday and Thursday


What is Grading?

It's important that players play in teams and against players of similar ability where possible. Football Queensland's competition structure is based on 4 development levels: Academy, Kangaroos, Wallabies and Quokkas. Academy is the highest level of football. Trials are held to establish what level players should play in based on their development stage and skill level. These trials are conducted by our Football Directors and teams are formed based on this. As such is it harder to accommodate "play with friends" request.


Miniroos Registration fee includes a Samford Rangers playing shirt, FFA/FQ governing body fees, insurance, training sessions, all game fees throughout the regular season, team photo, end of season trophy and presentation day.
