The Collingwood City Soccer Club has established a successful junior program for boys and girls.
In 2016 CCFC and Richmond SC have aligned themselves in a unique situation that has junior players as its key focus. All miniroos programs will now be run through Collingwood City.
Collingwood City FC is a vibrant, progressive, development club for players of all abilities.
We cater for children
- 3½-5 in our Kinder program,
- 6/7 in our skills training Saturday program
- under 8-11 in the miniroos program (The clubs fields numerous teams in each age groups to cater for all skill levels and experience)
- under 12-18 (junior and youth development)
The program aims to allow children to develop and maintain a love of the game while while enhancing their development as they mature as players within our system. The program covers the basic fundamentals of football through to technical game training sessions
The focus on player development is in line with the FFA national coaching curriculum and world best practice.
Coaches at CCFC specialise in small sided football (MiniRoos) and junior training programs and their focus and passion is the development of boys and girls at this age. The training style differs to Senior’s and requires great patience and understanding of the needs of this age to ensure full benefits are derived while maintaining fun and enjoyment
Under the expert guidance of our coaches, our goal is to transform your child into a sharper, fitter and more strategic player and to enhance the technical ability of all ages, both boys and girls while fostering in them a love of the game.
