Winter Season 2021

Our Miniroos program is for U8’s (born 2013) through to U12’s (born 2009). Our program includes both training once per week and matches on Saturdays (mixed/boys teams) and Sundays (girls only teams). Easts FC  plays in the Eastern Suburbs Football Association (ESFA) competition and under the Football Federation Australia (FFA) directive of Miniroos, providing young football players with the structure and platform to learn the basics of football. Our dedicated professional coaches deliver our coaching development program, which has been formulated with Football NSW and delivers the FFA’s curriculum, “the Skills Acquisition Phase”. 

Easts FC runs 2 programs for Miniroos.

  1. SAP Development Squad designed for aspiring, talented juniors seeking to advance their skills and technique – teams by trial (Click here for more info)
  2. The Development Program designed for all players that seek to play football, learn and enjoy – football for all

Match and Training Information:

Registered players play against other ESFA Clubs once per weekend and will train once per week with Easts. The cost of training coach is included in the registration fees and if the whole team agrees, and if we have available coaches, we can also organise a game-day coach for an extra fee. Otherwise, we encourage parents to get involved with the teams each weekend by acting as the game day coach. The Club provides training and support to those parents who are keen to get involved. Our home ground is Queens Park and games are played at different locations across the Eastern Suburbs within a 25-minute drive from Queens Park.
