The comp will run with a different format in late January/early February 2015 and will be the curtain raiser for our new artificial turf pitches under our brand new lights. Come and be one of the first to experience FIFA standard artificial surfaces and have some fun! Stay tuned during December/January for more details.

Upcoming Coaching Courses

For those coaches that look after teams in the 9 -13 yo age groups, there are 2 great courses coming up and they are being held at local clubs. The Skills Training Certificate course is a must for the person that wants to coach, who wants to see players develop but is a little unsure on how to go about that. You will receive great information and will be empowered to go out and take charge of your training sessions!

Football Brisbane Club Referee Course - Expressions of Interest Sought

There is every chance that at some stage during the season, there will be no referees appointed to your game or your child's game (Under 12 to senior mens and womens). This has already occurred in several senior games and also junior grading games. There is a real shortage of referees available and Football Brisbane acknowledge that at least 10% of games each weekend will have no referees appointed. So, what can we do??

Junior games, according to the rules, MUST proceed. Senior games are a little different however it is preferred that they too proceed. So, someone will have to step up and referee the game!!! A daunting task to be sure however with knowledge of the rules and their interpretations, the task is less daunting.

Souths United are seeking expressions of interest from parents, coaches, managers and older siblings to run a Football Brisbane Club Referee Course. Successful participants will then be issued a certificate and be eligible to referee any games at Souths (age dependent) where Football Brisbane Referees are not appointed.
