Jerseys are borrowed by all the players and returned at the end of the season. If you’re registering new players, we will need to see their birth certificate, passport or licence to verify their age.

We take FairPlay vouchers for players under 18 but you must bring them down to sign on. They will cover the first $150 of your registration. If you are still waiting for a voucher, you will need to make full payment and we will refund you once the voucher has arrived. To see if you’re eligible, visit https://www.qld.gov.au/recreation/sports/funding/fairplay/apply. We will announce here and on Facebook when the next round is open; act fast as they often run out.

Rep soccer – North Zone

Our club is part of the North Zone, the representative zone for the QCSA. Teams will be formed on the basis of friendly games played in the pre-season and by invitation. All eligible players will receive communication from the club on relevant dates. State Carnival will be held over the May long weekend in 2024 on the south side of Brisbane. Successful players are then able to trial for the Nationals teams as part of the State Carnival. This year we had eight players in Nationals teams across U14s, U17 Girls, U17 Boys and Senior Women. 

About our club

All teams (U6 and upwards) train at John Oxley Reserve in Murrumba Downs. Training is usually Wednesday afternoons for juniors and Wednesday nights for seniors. Training starts February or March (depending on age groups), with games starting in March for U6-10 and seniors and April for U11-18 and going until mid-August. Successful teams will have finals through til mid September.

Junior teams play Saturday mornings from 8am to 1pm (younger teams play earlier, older teams play later) and senior teams (men and women) usually play Saturday afternoons. We also have one Friday night over 45s mens team.

Our BFQ Juniors competition sees all Tiny Tots and U6-U10 playing all games at the one location – John Oxley Reserve.  During first two Saturdays of March 2024 we will hold FREE clinics run by the Brisbane Active Football Program. Competition games for U6-10 and seniors begin mid-March, games for U11-18 begin in April.

U11-18s play an across-Brisbane competition. Half the games are played at ‘home’, and half will be ‘away’ games played at various south/west locations. These players will also have additional opportunities for coaching clinics, pre-season games & mid-season competitions as well as the usual end-of-season final series.

Seniors play northside locations either Saturday afternoons or Friday nights. Bring your family, friends, girlfriends, boyfriends, partners along, the more the merrier. What is better than playing with your mates! Options for fulltime and casual players in some teams.
