Football Federation Australia (FFA), in partnership with its Member Federations, Hyundai A-League and Westfield W-League clubs, is thrilled to offer students across Australia quality football experiences via the Sporting Schools program.
FFA offers two programs for Sporting Schools, ALDI MiniRoos Kick-Off for primary schools and FFA Secondary School Football for secondary schools.
Primary School Program
The ALDI MiniRoos Kick-Off program introduces boys and girls aged 5 - 12 to the fundamental skills of football across a range of fun and engaging game-based activities. Program sessions use principles of the ‘Play For Life’ philosophy and align with the Personal Development, Health and Physical Education syllabus, ensuring curriculum outcomes are met.
ALDI MiniRoos Kick-Off programs can be tailored to suit the needs of each school. Programs can range from 4 - 12 sessions and can run from anywhere between 30 - 60 minutes. The programs are inclusive and available to students of all abilities. Sessions can also be delivered indoors by qualified Futsal coaches on request (WA and NSW only).
