Joining

Boys and girls who turn 5, 6 or 7 during the year are eligible to join the Miniroos Kick-Off program run by Glen Eira FC.

Slightly younger or older children may also join Kick-Off as appropriate. For example there maybe 8 year olds who haven’t played before and need some introductory skills and familiarity with the game. Or maybe the child’s physical size or skill-level means they’d have more fun in the Kick-Off program than elsewhere.


Submit your Expression of Interest to join Glen Eira FC to be notified when the official sign up forms from Football Victoria are ready.

What to wear/bring?

IMG_7187
Glen Eira 5-7yo has launched the careers of many accomplished footballers such as Ollie Howell, seen here at age 6.

Miniroos Kick-Off kids usually buy their own boots and shin guards. Runners are also fine, as long as the soles aren’t too smooth and the grass isn’t too wet.

Remember to bring their water bottles too.

Involvement of Parents

Your help may be needed if your kids are to get the most out of their introduction to football. Please try to find ways to contribute… maybe offer to help out by turning up early to help set up, or storing away the equipment, etc.

What if the weather is rotten?

If you don’t hear from the Kick-Off coordinator via text 20 mins before start time, then you should assume the session is on.

If any sessions are completely rained out, we will have catch-up sessions during the holiday break or extend the season a week or two.

What if we’re not sure?

You can come along to any Miniroos Kick-Off sessions for a free try-out session. If your child likes it and wants to come back then you can go online and join up after that.
