Hyundai A-League legend and former Caltex Socceroo Archie Thompson has done it all in football - and now with grassroots football in full swing, he's passing on that knowledge to volunteers and parents across Australia.

ALDI MiniRoos is the biggest junior football program in Australia with 220,000 youngsters aged between four and 11 playing in the official FFA Kick-Off programs or in one of the 2000 clubs across the country.
