ALDI MiniRoos Football Festivals

Football Federation Australia in conjunction with Northern New South Wales Football are calling on all primary schools both public and private to become involved in ALDI MiniRoos School Festival which are a fantastic opportunity for children in Years 3 and 4 to participate in football.

The ALDI MiniRoos School Festival will bring together a number of local schools participating in football matches on smaller fields in a round robin format at a local venue.

Northern New South Wales Football are delighted to support and facilitate the national schools program and help provide a fun opportunity for boys and girls throughout Australia.

Your school is requested to enter 1 up to 6 boys or girls team to participate.  The ALDI School Festival will provide students – who may or may not have played before – the opportunity to experience and be introduced to football in a fun environment, with some students having the chance to represent their school in a number of football challenges throughout the day.

The focus is entirely on enjoyment and participation as there will be no winners or scores recorded.

If your school would like to attend you need to be quick as places are limited and filling fast!
