The club has ventured into a bright new era and exciting changes have occurred with the advent of the new synthetic pitches at Murdoch University and the Club's name change. Competitions from age 10 – 12 are known as “MiniRoos” and within that group the Club will operate "Development Squads" (formerly academy teams) for the ages 9 – 12. Together with the existing NPL teams (13-16), these Development Squads form the overall Youth Academy structure of the club.
9’S DEVELOPMENT SQUAD
"Development Squads" (formerly academy teams) for the ages 9 – 12. Together with the existing NPL teams (13-16), these Development Squads form the overall Youth Academy structure of the club.
After a very successful 2017 year for our development squads - including the 2017 U9s academy team successfully playing up in the 10s - we plan to repeat that process for 2018. Children born in 2009 have been monitored throughout the season and the best have been selected for the opportunity to be part of an U9s development squad to develop their football skills further over the summer. Following that program, the intention again is to have the team play up in one of the regular U10 leagues in the 2018 season.
Invitation letters will go out next week, so please keep an eye out if your son or daughter was born in 2009 and played Rooball at Melville City FC this year. For any questions around this upcoming program please contact Dave Kindness.
