The season kicks off on Saturday 7 April 2018. 


2018 Competition draws will be available on the Dubbo Soccer website when finalised. 

Game Format

Under 13s and older compete on a full size pitch with 11 v. 11 players.

Miniroos format applies for Under 5s to Under 11s. 

Miniroos are modified forms of football, structured to cater for the needs of young players.

Miniroos focuses on fun with limited emphasis on formal coaching. Kids benefit because the game is more enjoyable and builds better skills. Players get to kick the ball more and are more involved in the game.
