Northern NSW to host new ALDI MiniRoos Kick-off for Girls Centres

October 10th, 2018

Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) has launched twelve ALDI MiniRoos Kick-Off For Girls centres throughout Northern NSW to continue the already significant increase in growth in female participation and secure the next generation of female players.

ALDI MiniRoos Kick-Off for Girls is an introductory program for all with numerous centres across Northern NSW including Lochinvar, Speers Point, Garden Suburb, New Lambton and Nelson Bay.

NNSWF Female Participation Officer Holly Ayton says the ALDI MiniRoos Kick-Off for Girls is a great opportunity for girls who haven’t participated in the sport before to try football in a safe and inviting environment.

“All of our coaches have been specifically trained to deliver this program and are as passionate as we are about providing a welcoming, fun game-based learning environment.”

ALDI MiniRoos Kick-Off for Girls has been developed in line with the game-sense philosophy of sports participation. This approach to sports delivery emphasises a move away from traditional coach dominated sessions to those that are player-centred, using game-like situations and the imagination for play rather than technical drills.

Each ALDI MiniRoos Kick-Off for Girls session runs for 45-minutes a week, for a duration of 8 weeks during School Term 4.  Each session consists of a 30-minute fun game based skill session and a 15-minute game. The program is split into two stages with a session plan for girls aged 4-7 and one for girls aged 8-9.

The benefits of ALDI MiniRoos Kick Off for Girls include;

> Fun, football game-based sessions that build fundamental motor skills

> Non-competitive activities to improve confidence and self-esteem

> Low participant-to-coach ratio resulting in greater individual engagement

> Experience the football basics

> Merchandise packs for new participants, including boot bag, shinpads, ball and more.
