Balcatta FC is proud to partner with the FFA to offer the ALDI MiniRoos program. Designed for kids of all abilities, aged 6 – 12 years. The nation-wide initiative uses short, game-based sessions to introduce the sport of football to newcomers in an inclusive way. It focuses on learning new skills, being active, making life-long friends and, potentially, unearthing the next generation of Socceroos or Matildas.
