The Mini Moas are dedicated to our entry level groups of football. It is open to boys and girls aged between 4 and 7 (born 2016-2018).
NOTE-7th grade girls born 2016 will now operate as part of the U8 girls framework. This will be a dual age band (being U8 league and including 7 and 8 year old girls).
The aim of the Mini Moas is to introduce young players to a structured programme to the game of football, providing them with fun and engagement through short simple drill sessions and then on to playing interclub games with their teammates.
Our aim is to use this time to help with basic ball control through a five-part structure incorporating general movement, technique, and co-ordination followed by small-sided games. The players will follow the Papamoa FC framework which has been specifically developed for the participating age groups.
