21/22 Miniroos Super League EOI

Be part of the Avondale family and join one of our Miniroos teams for the upcoming Super League starting November 13.

** WHAT IS THE JNR SUPER LEAGUE **
The Jnr Super League has been developed by leading NPL clubs to establish an elite pathway program and competition for POST and PRE season football for elite clubs, teams and players.
As a club we are working hard behind the scenes to develop additional pathways for our Miniroos talent to progress. As a founding member of the Jnr Super League Club,
we are able to provide selected players the ability to partake in year-round competitive football against the top clubs in Victoria at the highest level to help in our quest of developing our future NPL and Senior Footballers.
The Jnr Super League does not replace the regular winter season. This program is additional and designed for those who are looking to take their football to the next level between U8 and U12.
The Jnr Super League is based on a “Best v Best” competition that is only available to Miniroos of selected NPL clubs. This is a very similar structure to what we have been seeing with private academies in the Premier Academies League.
The main point of difference being that the Jnr Super League runs on the same structure as Football Victoria’s set guidelines. Team size and formats are as per Football Victoria, with all games to be 2 × 20min halves.
All matches will be refereed by Football Victoria.
The Jnr Super League has been set up to keep our talented players within our own structures and provide an additional pathway through training and games in summer when previously there were no competitions.
The 2021/22 Jnr Super League will be run as both a POST and PRE season competition and will see one team in the following age groups compete:
U8 (2013 born) / U9 (2012 born) / U10 (2011 born) / U11 (2010 born) / U12 (2009 born)
The post season competition for 2021 (Block 1) will kick off November 13. There will be 9 Gala Days with each team playing 2 rounds on each day. Total of 18 rounds of football.
