Grassroots Program

BOYS & GIRLS 3-8 YEARS

Our Grassroots program has been developed to provide an experience in an environment promoting participation in football and developing a lifelong love for the game for Boys & Girls raging from 3 years old to 8 years old.

‘JUST LET THEM PLAY’

This will be the key theme for the Grassroots Program. The aim is for the kids to fall in love with our beautiful game – Football. The Kids will come to the Grassroots training just wanting to play football, so we will keep the talking and instruction to a minimum and “just let them play”.

About our Grassroots Program

We have a 30-week programme broken down into 3 Terms. We start the training sessions at 9:30am every Saturday with a group warm up session with every player with a ball at their feet learning to take touches and get a feel of the ball at their feet, this gets the kids in the right frame of mind ready to begin. They then break off with their coaches and begin to conduct fun football drills such as dribbling, passing, shooting which are all football specific. We finish with a small sided game to get the kids to put into practice what they have learnt during the session.

Remember Grassroots football is so that we can “JUST LET THEM PLAY”.

There will be two options for the 8-year olds, you can choose to participate in the standard Grassroots Curriculum or choose to enrol into the U8s Grassroots Team Program.

The U8s Grassroots Team will train on Saturdays as part of the Grassroots Curriculum but will register a team to play in a 18 week competition playing games on Sunday but parents will need to manage the game day.

What Do I need to bring every week?

It is compulsory for each player to have their own shin guards and drink bottles every week. When you register we will allocate your child to a group, that group will be a specific colour, the coach on the day will also be wearing the same colour bib so that you can easily find your way to your child’s coach and group.

We have great facilities at Mazenod Victory Football Club and it is recommended that your child has soccer boots but we do train on either the grass oval in Term 1 and the synthetic ground in Terms 2 & 3, if you do not have soccer boots, runners can be worn. Please know that it can get slippery in the winter months and we always recommend that you do use appropriate footwear.
