Welcome to the club – 2024 edition

Hi folks, here’s an introduction to the club and how we do things.

Registration:

We’re doing our part to help.. We’ve held our registration prices same as last year despite increasing costs.
And we’re reintroducing sibling discounts.. if you’ve got 2 kids in the club, you’ll get $25 off the 2nd. If you’re got 3, then it’s $50 off for the third child and each sibling after that.
We make sure when you pay registration, you get the whole kit and caboodle, we give you all the team kit. you just need to bring your boots and shin-pads. All our Miniroos get a soccer ball and this year we’re providing a Soccer ball to youth players as well.
We’re proud of our Canteen too, we have the lowest prices in the whole association, but still serve the highest quality food we can and strive to meet the dietary needs of our many club members.

About the club & game format:

4 groups:
Miniroo’s 4-11, Youth 12-17, Seniors 18+, Women’s Youth

Special groups, age four (under5s)
Focussed on introducing the game – no competitive games, will only play for experience against other Toongabbie U5s.

Miniroos 4-11
Development of skills – fair competitive games against other teams in the Granville Soccer Association.

Youth 12-17
Focus on competitive play – playing across several divisions against other teams in the Granville Soccer Association.

Seniors 18+

Women’s Youth
Off the back of the women’s world cup, we’re growing our women’s youth to offer teams in every age-group.
Playing in the Phoenix League, against teams from Granville and Blacktown Associations.

The Season Calendar:

The gist of it is, we spend Feb & March forming our teams and preparing for the season.
Then from April to August we train during the week and play soccer on the weekends.
If we’ve had a good year, we’ll have teams in finals across August & Sept.
Then we celebrate, wrap up and pack up for the season with out end of season presentations!
But there’s a bit more in the detail, and it can be subject to change, so for the latest details, please check the website.
