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.
The NAB Skills Series has been developed to give ALDI MiniRoos volunteers and parents the tools to deliver great sessions for young children who love their football.
Watch Archie in the VIDEO ABOVE as he shows what you need to run a great session for young children.
This is part of a series of 10 videos designed by FFA's coaching team and Ambassadors Steph Catley and Archie to provide a set of 30 approved activities for Game Leaders and parents to use in their ALDI MiniRoos sessions.
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.
Football is the biggest junior team participation sport in Australia and is considered one of the safest sports for children.
