Ōmokoroa FC – MINIS


Information for Parents

All Minis Football sessions run Saturday mornings, starting at 09:00 at the Ōmokoroa Sports Grounds on Western Ave. We are based on the bottom fields (at the Northern end, below the Tennis Courts).

The 2024 season runs from 4th May to 29th June (Term 2) and starts again in term 3 –   27th July – September

Communications will be posted on our Facebook page throughout the season. This is where we will post cancellations due to weather.  Parents, please share your photos and thoughts with us.

Typically a session will run from 09:00 – 10:30. The session will follow the following format –

  • 10 minutes warm up.
  • Then split the group into their grades. 4 x different drill stations will be available and each group will spend 10 minutes at each drill station and then rotate. These drill stations will compromise shooting skills, passing skills, dribbling skills, etc. Designed to be fun and interactive for the kids to get used to basics of football.
  • Have a break for some food and drink
  • Play a game within their grades – the part the kids enjoy the most!

The Mini’s Grades are as follows:

Grade 5 – for kids turning 5 at some point this year. Please note we do have some 4 years old’s participating as well.

Grade 6 – for kids turning 6 at some point this year

Grade 7 – for kids turning 7 at some point this year
