NPL Junior Boys
The JBNPL is designed for players with qualitative aspirations for their football development. This is for players looking to participate in more advanced and intensive programs than those offered at the Community level.
This means that requirements on players will be more significant. Not only are players expected to have higher levels of technical ability, but they must also be prepared to commit to a longer season and more training sessions than at the Community level. All clubs are required to participate in a season that is 40 weeks long, playing 33 games and includes three (3) training sessions per week. Coaches must possess FFA coaching qualifications and facilities must reach certain standards. The season will require players to be available for training and playing across most long weekends and school holidays. Our JBNPL competition also includes teams from regional Victoria and as such there is an added requirement regarding travel for some away fixtures.
Community Juniors & Aldi Mini Roos
The Community level is designed for players of all abilities to experience a well-organised, structured football competition in a shorter-time frame. We participate in a season that is approx 20 – 25 weeks playing 18-22 games. Training will occur once or twice per week, depending on the team.
There are committed and talented players who choose to play in our Community competition for a variety of reasons. These can include the football culture of our club, the cost, the time commitment required and the travel demanded at various levels of FV competitions.
Mini Roos | Grass Roots
Focusing on small sided games and ball skills our ‘MiniRoos Grass Roots’ program is the perfect foundation for young boys and girls aged 4 to 6 who are looking to begin playing soccer.
Training sessions are run by quality coaches and focus on getting boys & girls used to having a ball at the feet and learning the basics skills needed to progress into the larger game formats.
