These age groups play non-competitive Small-sided Games (SSGs) against other clubs. Boys and girls are welcome to register for these age groups. Results are not recorded.
At this level the emphasis is on fun and learning. Parent helpers assist the players on the field in the Under 6 and Under 7 age groups. These ages play 4 a side without a goalkeeper on a field that is 30m x 20m with goals 2m wide x 1m high. They play 20 minute halves.
The entire GHFA area is broken into zones to reduce the amount of travel involved at the younger age groups.
Under 8 play 7 a side with a goalkeeper.Games are played non a field 45m x 35m with goals 3m wide and 2m high. The children play 20 minute halves
There is one graded division (Blue) in the Association. Roselea players have the option to try out for the ?graded? division, which is semi-competitive, if there are sufficient players to field a graded team.
Matches are played at various times on Saturday mornings and will be published in the Season Draw just prior to the first match in early April.
All players must wear shin pads and boots.
Training is usually held once a week for these age groups. It is important that parents or care givers remain at the ground to assist coaches and managers with the children.
