We often have teams with positions available, so players are encouraged to submit their interest at any time of the season.
Led by experienced and passionate coaches, we:
- Assist in the transition of young players into senior football;
- Provide opportunities for players who have never played before;
- Maximise a healthy balance between football and the social side of it; and
- Provide an environment that promotes age and cultural diversity.
We cater for children from 4 to 11 years in our Miniroos program, focusing on learning new skills & being active.

Respect the Game
On most weekends, tens of thousands of girls, boys, women and men can be found playing and officiating football matches across Victoria, watched and supported by thousands more parents, family members, club officials and volunteers.
Over time, a minority of these people have unfortunately decided that it is ok to:
- Abuse referees, both official and volunteers
- Scream and yell at players, coaches and officials
- Criticise performance rather than celebrate effort Ignore, manipulate and question rules and decisions.
The impact this behaviour has on our game cannot be understated. People stop playing the game, referees stop officiating, tensions between clubs rise. In order to make a genuine difference to the behaviour of everyone involved in our game, a cultural shift needs to occur. This needs to occur at all levels. We need to Respect The Game.
