U8's INFORMATION

Miniroos - Club Football (U8)

Taringa Rovers Soccer FC


Small Sided Football develops children's footballing and athletic abilities via a controlled and enjoyable introduction to training and playing football in a team and game-based environment. Players are able to learn and further develop their basic football, teamwork and fair play skills in a fun and safe environment. 

Small Sided Football (SSF) programs are run to be consistent with the national SSF directives from the FFA.

Parents will be asked to volunteer as Coaches & Managers of U8 teams.  SSF provides progression for both players and parent-coaches (who are well equipped with the knowledge gained through the Mini-Roos program) to allow planning and conducting their own training sessions and matches.

Sessions consist of a 1 hour weekly training session and a match on Saturday morning.  Under 8 games are all played in-house against other Taringa Under 8 teams.  There is no travelling for Under 8 players.

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.
