ALDI MiniRoos Kick-Off site numbers continue to grow across Australia with over 20 new sites approved in the first two weeks of January alone.
Victorian and Queensland clubs continue to be active, highlighted by Old Xaverians SC in Melbourne, who are introducing MKO as their first step in bringing junior football into the club. New clubs continue to submit applications to deliver MKO across all Member Federations.
Football Federation Victoria’s MiniRoos Development Officer, Seb Zancan, welcomed the inclusion of the club into the MiniRoos family, saying: “It’s great that MiniRoos is an attractive option for all clubs, including those that have been set up to serve older age groups."
An ALDI MiniRoos Kick-Off program is a great way for clubs to introduce new kids into football, prepare for the upcoming winter season and have fun with friends and teammates. Affiliated clubs and new sites across Australia are encouraged to deliver this program in their club, even in the non-traditional winter season.
“More and more clubs are recognising the value of running an ALDI MiniRoos Kick-Off site at their club”, said Ben Goodridge, FFA’s National MiniRoos Manager.
“Following our new partners ALDI coming on board, along with a reduction in program fees, more and more clubs are recognising the ALDI MiniRoos Kick-Off program as the perfect introduction for boys and girls to our great game.”
