Mini Football / 9 to 10 year olds


Ideally teams comprise of nine players – 7 playing + 2 reserves.

The playing teams are 7 a side (including a goalkeeper), using a size 4 ball and on a ground 50m by 30m with goals that are 4 x 2 metres.

The Saturday game day comprises of 2 x 25 minutes games.

Teams play in the Wellington/Western zone combined league. Except for the Grade 10 A and B streamed teams who play in the travel leagues.

Weekly draws will be posted on the Capital Football Website: Fixtures, prior to each Saturday’s game.

You will be advised of the time, the grounds and which team you are playing against by your team manager.

Each team needs a coach, a manager and another volunteer who is not the coach who can referee the weekly matches.

Grade 9 is the first year that players can choose to trial for the streamed teams.  For further details on the trials click here.
