U6 & U7 INFORMATION

Miniroos - Club Football (U6 & U7)

Taringa Rovers Soccer FC


Miniroos are oriented to develop a consistent level of both footballing skill and athletic ability, through a weekly basic development level circuit program as well as a game-based exercise, and to provide future players with fundamental skills and co-ordination required to participate in small sided football.

Young players are able to begin being introduced to playing football in a team environment at a familiar location amongst the safety of friends and family. 

To ensure children are able to achieve the best progression, the program has been developed to:

  1. Continue to increase exposure to the game for young children; and
  2. Provide parents and future coaches with the appropriate skillset to develop young players.

Sessions are 90 mins long and are held weekly on a Saturday morning (excluding school holidays and public holidays). 

Parents will be asked to volunteer as team coach where they will be instructed, supervised & mentored by the Club Technical Director of Coaching - Juniors.  The Technical Director will decide what skills & drills are to be done each session and explain to the Coaches how each skill or drill is to be undertaken.  They also provide instruction & direction while the skill or drill is being executed. After the skills session, the Parent Coaches will be expected to referee the in-house small-sided game. 

This unique in-house U6 & U7 program was introduced at Taringa in 2012 and has been very successful in providing consistent skill development to those young players starting out at football.  It has also been successful in providing an excellent environment for any parents who may be interested in becoming a coach to learn the ropes in a supported & controlled way.    Many of the parents who started out helping their child’s team in U6 & U7 have gone on to coach their children’s teams in the older age groups & have reaped the benefit of being part of the club community & involved in their child’s football.


When are U6/U7 sessions?

Taringa Rovers Soccer FC


One session (includes skills session plus small sided game) per week on Saturdays as follows:

U6’s 8.30am to approx. 10am

U7’s 9.30am to approx. 11am.


Sessions will run through school terms 2 & 3


The season starts on Saturday April 23rd, which is the last weekend of the school holidays.


There is no additional training session during the week for these age groups and all sessions are held at Jack Speare Park each week


Players will be allocated to a team and parent coaches are required for each team (please contact Inhouse Juniors Coordinator u6-u8coordinator@taringarovers.com.au if you can assist with coaching). 


Where to go

The session will commence with a Skills Session which will be conducted on the Main Field in the corner furthest from the Clubhouse (Lambert Road end).  After the Skills Session, teams will play a small-sided game against other Taringa Rovers teams in the same age group.

Team Coaches and Managers

Taringa Rovers Soccer FC


We ask for parent volunteer coach and/or coaches for each team and a dedicated manager to be the central point of contact for team communication. 

At the end of training, we ask that our parent community assist with packing up of the fields, including goals, to ensure the fields are quickly accessible for the next age group starting training. 

All coaches and managers must register as a volunteer through PlayFootball and provide a Bluecard (working with children) check. There is no cost for this and Taringa Rovers assists you with this quick process. 


Please contact our U6 - U6 coordinator, Andrew Nearhos, if you can assist with coaching or managing your players team. u6-u8coordinator@taringarovers.com.au
