Junior teams

Ranging from 6 to 18 Years. For both boys and girls


Coaching Program

NBSC Junior Development Program is in line with the FFA National Curriculum. Our Junior Development Program focuses on players between 5 & 18 years of age. We have a ‘Coach the Coach’ approach, where the focus is on:

  • player development
  • how to conduct training
  • match day preparation
  • managing players
  • ensuring every player plays to their full potential whilst having fun.

There is a logical progression of training from year to year making sure it is age appropriate. Players will be taught how to play the game in a proper and fun way in a team-oriented setting. Through this program, players are also given the freedom to express themselves and be creative The main foundation being the love of the game which is the roots of this program whilst learning life skills such as teamwork, respect and discipline.

For more information or any queries, please email mail@nbsc.org.au. Alternatively you can have a look at the National Curriculum on the FFA website.

Juniors 6s & 7s

The group is split each Sunday morning into small teams who play small sided games against the clubs nominated by Football West in our hub.

The small sided games involve teams of four North Beach players, guided by a game day leader volunteer, playing against teams from either Sorrento, Stirling Lions or Inglewood United.

The game is played on a 30×20 meter pitch as per the FFA small sided game rules.

The focus is on participation, skill development, team work and enjoyment, rather than winning.

Miniroos Junior 8-11s

MiniRoos is a modified form of 11-a-side football, designed to meet the needs of players under the age of 12, who have very different developmental characteristics and needs to adult players.

The philosophy of MiniRoos focuses on enjoyment and freedom of expression and aims to makes the game of football a better experience for children. It aims to provide more touches on the ball, more opportunities to make decisions, allowing for more actual play. Players will be more active due to playing both attacking and defensive roles within a match and will understand the importance of team-mates and playing and working together.

Girls 12-18

From 12’s the girls league runs parallel to the boys league and each year the amount of teams (and age groups) entering this competition is increasing. We are fortunate as a club to have an ever growing girls league. Last year we had teams in the 11’s, 13’s, 14’s and 15’s age group. We are able to offer an all girls team from under 11’s – however at 11 they still fall under the MiniRoos umbrella.

Boys 12-18

Once the children turn 12, the soccer is taken more seriously and the boys and girls generally separate into their own leagues.

This is also the time when they start to use full size pitches, full size soccer balls and occupy full size teams. Teams may also start training twice a week. Once the players have graduated to the full size pitch, the club undertakes grading when there are two or more teams of players within the one age group. Please see the clubs Grading Policy for more information.
