GTFC Squirts Kick-Off has been a great success in past years.


We look forward to the 2020 season for all  3-5-year-old child participating in Squirts Kick-Off.


Do you have a child keen to learn a new safe sport in a fun, friendly environment? Then our Squirts Kick-Off program is just right for you.


The weekly sessions are the perfect introduction to the world’s most popular game for boys and girls aged between 3 and 5. Coaches take the class through a series of football drills that focus on fun.


Every player gets plenty of time on the ball and the prime aim of each session is for children to build fundamental motor skills in a fun, engaging, and inclusive environment.


Spots are strictly limited to 60 Squirts for the February intake. 


Children who have turned 3 years of age and were born in 2015-2017 can sign up for Squirts Kick-Off.

Squirts Kick-Off will be starting on the first Saturday in March 2020 with two session times available. The first session commencing from 8.00am and the second at 9.00am on Field 1.

At Squirts Kick-Off your child will need to wear a sun safe hat, wear sunscreen, have a full water bottle, wear shin pads, shorts, footwear (football boots are optional) and wear long socks.

Online Registration are available for 2020 NOW!


Our youngest players start their football careers in the MiniRoo program.  Spanning age groups from 5 to Under 12, these games are played with modified rules and fields.  


The focus is on enjoying the game, in line with the Discovery phase of the FFA National Curriculum.  Players learn football by playing football.  At GTFC all our MiniRoo teams are open to both girls and boys.


Parents of players in these age groups should register after we announce our registrations are open, and following this our volunteers will begin the process of placing players in a team for the Season.

For parents of U6 to U12 players, there is a website that provides more information on the rules and formats for the games for these age groups. The website address is www.miniroos.com.au.
