PORT Macquarie Football Club is looking to get the youngsters involved in the sport with an introductory program kicking off on Thursday.

The AIA Vitality MiniRoos Kick Off will use short, game-based sessions to get kids aged from four to six into the world game.

It runs for six weeks, with 45 minute sessions kicking off at 5pm at Macquarie Park in Gordon Street.

The football skills based sessions will build the kids’ self confidence. 

A smaller coach to player ratio ensures great individual engagement.

Football Mid North Coast general manager Peter Daniels congratulated FC for getting on the front foot with the kids’ development.

“They do a great job with the juniors in the coaching sphere,” Daniels said.

He encouraged everyone with children in the age group to get them signed up.

“I look forward to seeing the little kids running around and having a great time,” Daniels said.

Everyone who signs up to play will get a back pack, water bottle, football and playing jersey.

It’s not  to late to get your young star involved.
