Tournaments & Programs

Selected teams play in a variety of tournaments, including Pre & Post Season Junior Super League competitions against teams from all over Melbourne & Australia.

The club offers additional futsal programs in Terms 1 & 4 and is looking at providing holiday clinic options throughout the year.

The club is also exploring options for older age group players to be involved in specific speed and agility programs that complement existing training.


Our program is designed to develop players so that they possess high levels of our football elements with enhanced Game IQ and a positive attitude.

This is to prepare players for NPL Boys & Girls teams and subsequent high level pathways to senior football.

Players are coached by accredited coaches who conduct sessions based on age specific and competency level requirements and are overseen by our Foundation Technical Director.

Teams play in Football Victoria accredited home and away Miniroos fixtures on Sunday mornings.

Technical sessions (Saturday mornings) are conducted by age group, where specific skills are focussed on and tested to track improvements.

All players are exposed to futsal sessions monthly to further enhance their touch, control and game intelligence.
