FFT School Visits


Football Federation Tasmania has a number of Football Participation Officers (FPOs) who are available to visit primary schools to run free MiniRoos clinics. The MiniRoos program has been designed to introduce kids to the world game in a fun, inclusive environment. The sessions are focussed on fun, football-related games and activities that develop skill, build confidence and lay a platform for continued engagement in all forms of the game. The aim is to give children the confidence to transition into MiniRoos Club football when they are ready.


Football Federation Tasmania is also registered to deliver a MiniRoos program as part of the Australian Sports Commission's “Sporting Schools” program. The standard Sporting Schools MiniRoos program is based around a series of four 45-minute sessions, so it provides a more extensive introduction to the game, making it a good option for kids who may be interested in exploring the sport further.

We may also be able to offer an opportunity for your PE teacher to gain football coaching accreditation and personal development.

These FPOs are here to help, so if your school is interested in a football school visit, enquire with the FPO in your area!
