At the beginning of the 2018 Football Federation Australia expanded their athlete pathway, with the introduction of ALDI MiniRoos for Girls. The concept of the programs allows for girls to have their first taste of football within a environment surrounded other girls, with a similar skill level and familiar environment.
The Southern Districts Football Soccer Association the Fairfield Hotspurs, have been one of a few clubs who have taken this new program on board as part of their scheduling.
On Saturday the 7th of July, the club held their first session which had proved to successful with a small group participating in the day’s session. The session included drills on some fundamental beginner concepts, games, and numerous football games with an abundance of smiles to match.
Football NSW Game Development Officer Kevin Amaya was present at the launch of the program, and commended the club on their efforts as well as their future ambitions.
“The Fairfield Hotspurs are apart of a select group who have taken the initiative to bring girls to the game, through the ALDI MiniRoos pathway. Today’s session may have been small, but it’s club like Chipping Norton FC who have proven not only the benefits but the potential which this program can develop for those involved.”
The Southern Districts club have big aspirations for the program and those involved, with Club President Nic hoping to enter the first all girls team to play in the local league next season.
