Miniroos Playing Formats and Rules
The Miniroos competition typically begins on the first Saturday in April, NSFA will confirm closer to the start of the season.
Under 6 and Under 7 are placed into teams based on friend requests and school, however, not all requests will able to be accommodated, but we will do our best.
Starting at under 8 the children are required to attend a grading day and will be placed into teams based on ability.
Grading day will be held during February, venue will be communicated via social media and email.
All MiniRoos teams will need a parent coach and a parent manager. Please contact the club once the teams have been announced if you would like to volunteer for either of these roles. The manager is required to enter in-game day results and help with the administration side of the team. The coach is responsible for training the team and coaching on a Saturday. Every second training session will have a Kano coach leading the session and helping with skill acquisition. All coaches and managers are required to have a current Working With Children Check which will be checked before the season begins.
Parents are asked to help referee the games on a Saturday (Particularly with the 6/7’s) this helps take the weight off the coach and allows them to guide the team. Please make yourself aware of the rules and game format, in the hope that you can help referee and be able to answer any questions the kids have regarding the game.
MiniRoos game leader introductions: The club will host Game Leader courses in 2024, these will be communicated via social media and email once confirmed.

The Game leader's role is to facilitate the weekend games, ensuring all players stay true to the rules of the game, and that everyone is included and having fun.
Each game is to be controlled by one Game Leader. The main role of the Game Leader is to keep the game moving fluently, limit stoppages, and assist players with all match restarts. Most importantly, they must make every effort to create an environment that ensures that all players have fun, are learning the game, and have maximum involvement.
