ALDI MiniRoos Holiday Clinics hope to build on all participants enjoyment of playing football and love of the game by providing a fun, safe, pressure free environment.
The clinics are for new and existing players aged 4-11. We believe the best way to learn football is by playing football and our curriculum is designed to cater to all skill levels. Our qualified coaches are there to guide players through fun and football relevant activities and games, which are stimulating and challenging for all involved.
Players are advised to bring a hat, full drink bottle, football boots, shin pads, healthy lunch and snacks to fuel them throughout the day, and to wear weather appropriate clothing. Football boots are not compulsory and players are welcome to wear joggers. Shin pads are compulsory for safety.
Please be aware that players attending the clinics may have allergies (e.g. nut) and we ask that you consider this when packing your child’s food. We also have a no sharing food policy.
Basic first aid and sunscreen will be available to participants throughout the clinic, as will a drink station/taps for players to fill up their drink bottles. Mandatory breaks are scheduled throughout the day for players to eat, re-apply sunscreen and stay hydrated.
Participants who require medication will also need to provide the clinic director with an action plan and show that required medication has been packed each day/where it is kept in the bag. Alternatively you can leave it with the clinic director each morning when you sign in.
The program runs from 9am to 12pm each day, Parents/Guardians MUST sign their child/children in and out each day. If someone other than a parent is doing the pick up and drop off please notify the clinic director in writing.
$175 per 9 hour clinic for all participants.
Family Discount of 10% is available when registering more than one sibling per clinic.
