MiniRoos Certificate Course

The Miniroos Certificate, which uses short, game-based sessions to introduce football to newcomers in an inclusive way, kicked off on February 18. The two-hour course, designed for people who coach kids aged four to nine years, is fully practical and encourages the coach to develop practices that are safe, fun an enjoyable.

The nation-wide program puts an emphasis on natural development, being active, making life-long friends and potentially unearthing the next generation of Socceroos or Matildas. No coaching but organising FUN football exercises is the key to helping players build a love for the game.

Another highlight of the course is that the coaches are exposed to basic rules of the game as well as tips and hints on building a football culture in a completely practical setting.

The Certificate, previously known as the Football West Grassroots Course, was recently renamed to fall in line with new Football Federation Australia sponsorships.
