The 2015 season is fast approaching and we having been working hard to design and implement various items deriving from feedback in the member’s survey so that 2015 is our biggest and best season yet. Please see below important information for junior football including U6 to U16s mixed and all girl teams.
The club has an official registration day for players who are NEW to football. This will be Sunday the 1st of February, 11am-3pm in our clubhouse (entry to the clubhouse is from the Field 1 side of the building as the front door entrance is currently being retiled). Players who have played in the past are to follow the Self Registration link at the bottom of this page. Should you have trouble there is a help line number you can call at My Football Club.
Competition start dates – as per Football Brisbane DRAFT Calendar
- Miniroos will be starting the weekend of 6/7 March
- U12-U16 competitions commencing the following week, March 13/14.
U8 Friday nights only
U8 will be a Friday night only competition this year as part of a new Friday Festival of Football with games between 6:30pm and 8pm. We are working with Football Brisbane to have 2 x senior games on Field 1, 2 x junior games on Field 2, and U8 on Field 3. That way you know the clubhouse (and posibily the canteen) will be open 6pm - 10pm on Friday nights. We will have 2 x senior games on Saturday nights with the club open the same times.
Unfortunately if your U8 can’t play Friday nights we will be unable to accommodate them in any other age groups that play on Saturdays.
U12–U16 Friday night games
As part of the Friday Festival of Football all teams in these age groups will be expected to play some games on Friday nights. We expect it will be 2–3 games per year depending on the schedule.
The registration fees have increased this year across the board by approximately $35–50 per player. The increases have been brought about by The Gap Football Club component rising $25 due to increased costs for power and water, as well as the ongoing maintenance of our fields (including Payne Road S.S) and supporting infrastructure.
This year we have introduced an equipment levy of approximately $15 for all players, as one of the the things to come out of our end-of-year feedback survey was that you would like to see us provide new equipment for the players.
The volunteer levy has increased by $15 to $100 on the first player in a family. We need more volunteers to help run the Junior section. There will be more opportunities to get the $100 back by volunteering as Marshall for U6–U11 matches or working in the canteen. If you do this, your registration will be lower than last year. Conversely, junior subcommittee fees have dropped by approximately $5.
To find out the fees please visit our Fees Packages page.
Coaches and Managers
All coaches and volunteers need to register too. The sooner the better so ID tags can be printed and ready for them to start the season. Note Football Bribane and not The Gap Football Club prints the coach and manager ID tags, so we have strict deadlines to follow.
Junior Subcommittee positions
We are still looking for help filling a number of positions. We urgently require the following:
- Miniroos Marshall & Referee Coordinator (scheduling of referees and maintaining match appointments);
- a number of Age Coordinators; and
- Commercial Coordinator
All roles are outlined in the club's Handbook.
