Mini’s

The Cove Football Club Mini Sunday Competition plays within the Southern Football League (SFL). As part of this league, Mini’s Under 8’s – Under 12’s do not play a final series and no league ladder or scores are kept. The emphasis in these grades is about having fun, participating, and learning basic football skills.

A ‘Lightning Carnival’ will be held for these age groups, usually at the end of the season. The Cove Football Club does not alter its teams in these events.

These times are set by the SFL:

  • U8 – 9.00am Sunday
  • U10 – 9.55am Sunday
  • U12 – 11.00am Sunday

All players are expected at the ground a minimum of 30 minutes prior to the game unless advised differently by the coach. Players should ensure they are ready to play as soon as possible after their arrival at the ground. Coaches may require warm-ups and a team meeting.

In line with SFL Policy the following applies to Sunday Mini’s teams

  • No premiership win or loss points will be awarded or recorded
  • No finals series to be played
  • No publication of premiership ladders
  • No publication of match results

Team Sizes

Standard on field team sizes are:

Under 8’s = 12 players, Under 10’s = 15 players, U12 = 18 players.

In the event that a player is sick or has a planned absence on a match day, please advise your coach/team manager as soon as possible.
