PLEASE REMEMBER YOUR MASKS

As per this morning's (11th Jan) Update from Queensland Health - and the attached link from Qld Health - we'd like to remind you to bring your masks with you to the ground for before and after any training or playing activities.   Masks must also be worn when inside structures such as the club house.   Your safety is our concern, but your responsibility.

Junior Competition CoOrdinator Needed

We need you 2


Your club can only run through the help of volunteers - and we currently have a need to fill the Junior Competition Co-Ordinator role.   Working with the committee, you'll be a crucial piece in helping our Junior Competitive teams have a successful 2021 season.   The role primarily requires some email co-ordination which can be balanced against your existing commitments - and the rest of the football committee have experience in the requirements of the role, so you won't be on your own.  


We'd also appreciate any early nominations for team managers as we build up to the season - many hands make light work!   

The Volunteer application form can be found: here


Coaches and Managers

All Coaches and Managers are asked to ensure that they have filled in the appropriate volunteer form for this season as soon as possible.   You will need to fill in your volunteer app and provide us with details of your Blue Card for Junior Teams before training starts.

If you are interested in coaching and have not yet applied - please fill in the forms ASAP.


Volunteer form is found: HERE

BlueCard information can be found Here: QueenslandBlueCard

Season 2021 is nearly upon us! We aim to run as many teams as we can - and to help us plan, we're offering Early Bird Pricing. This pricing will only run until 1 week after the fields open again (18th January), so get in quick. 

We've been granted entry for the Vilic Law Capital 3 Men's competition for 2021. If you want to play this grade specifically, please select it as the fees represent the additional costs the club incurs for this competition. Your shorts, socks and polo are included in your fees for Capital League to recognise the presentation standards we want to maintain.

If you would like to play Men's City League specifically, please register for this level so that we can gauge how many teams we will need to nominate.

We are also looking at running a "Kick Off" program for the littlies and will launch that when we understand the options. details will be finalized based on interest received.
