What is Kick Off?

Created by the Football Federation Australia (FFA), Kick-Off uses short, game-based sessions to provide young newcomers to the game with a fun and, most importantly, an inclusive opportunity try their hand at the world's favourite game. Essendon Royals is an accredited MiniRoos Kick-Off site.
