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.

Managers and Coaches

Managers and Coaches for MiniRoos football are provided by parents of players in the team. Oxley United FC provide support to these parents and we have purchased a new administrative system this year which will make communication between Managers, Coaches, their teams and Oxley United FC must simpler.

More information will be provided at the Muster afternoon and at the Coaches and Managers Information evenings at the commencement of the season.


What age group does my child participate in?

Players play in the age group according to the age they turn in the 2017 calendar year, e.g. a player who turns 8 in 2017 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.

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.
