Format for Players

Currently RFC registers over 850 players annually and fields over 65 teams.  RFC plays in the North West Sydney Football (NWSF) association and enters teams for all ages and levels of experience and ability.

The club enters Mixed (Boys & girls); Girls Only and Mens and Women’s teams in MiniRoos (U6 - U11); Juniors U12 - U18 and Seniors (U21s [Mens], All Age [Men's and Women’s], O35 and O45 [Mens] and O30s [Womens]) 

MiniRoos -  (U6 - U11)

MiniRoos Teams play small-sided games in a non-competitive structure. 

All "MinisRoos" are placed in teams with their friends; generally according to the school they attend. They are encouraged to have fun in a non-competitive environment. This is encouraged through parents, coaches and managers.

The entire NWSF area is broken into zones to reduce the amount of travelling involved at the younger age groups. Matches are played at various times on Saturday mornings.


Under 6s and 7s play 4 a side with usually 2 reserves on a pitch 20 x 30m.

Under 8s and 9s play 7 a side with a goalkeeper on a pitch 35 x 45m.

Under 10s and Under 11s play in teams of 9 a side with a maximum of 3 reserves on a ¾ size field with a goalkeeper.

Under 9s - 11s teams are graded so players of similar ability play against each other.

Juniors Competitive Teams (U12 - U18)

Under 12s to Under 18s, play in teams of 11 players on a full-sized field. Players in the junior competitive age groups are individually graded (by the Club’s grading committee) so they are, where possible, playing with and against players of similar ability. Matches are played at various times on Saturday.

Senior Teams Mens (U21, All Age, Over 35s and Over 45s)

These competitions are played under normal FIFA rules. This provides the opportunity for all "senior" players to play at different levels of ability as they grow with Roselea. It includes the Over35s and Over45s competitions.

Girls and Womens Teams (U7 - U11, U12 - U18, All Age and Over 30s)

Under 7s to Under 11s play non-competitive MiniRoos in the same format as above.

Under 12 to All Age and Over30s play competitive 11-a-side football against other clubs on a full-size field. Matches are played on Sundays.
