Fields Closed for Weekend

Friday, 28th June 2019
Regretfully, the Mudgeeraba Fields are in no condition to be played on.
We are forced to keep the field closed all weekend.

No Friday or Saturday Games.

All games will be rescheduled. Please keep an eye on the fixtures.

For all away games, please check with the away club for their field closures ( Facebook or website).

New Field 3 Training Allocations

During the recent Football Committee Meeting, training allocation was discussed. In particular, the benefit of having ages grouped together.

It was identified that having age group together will benefit training in the following way:

  • Better use and organisation of space, and size division necessary for each group
  • Better visualisation and control of the training for the Director of Coaching, Aldo, resulting in improvement in the aid provided by the club for the development of the players and coaches
  • New opportunity for the coaches of different teams to train together with other coaches of the same age group, being able to do some training games in a bigger space, with added number of players
  • The opportunity for players to gain new experiences from playing and training with new players of different levels to aid in football development

The changed will take effect as of today, Wednesday 19th June. All coaches have received an email regarding the change.

All other teams are to train on Field 4

Aldo will be available to assist teams in positioning themselves in their allocated space.

Field 2 Training Schedule

During the Football Committee Meeting, it was identified that competition age teams need extra space to train as the current compressed nature of training is affecting their use of field width during games.

It was agreed that if teams were able to train twice a month on half a field it would help alleviate this issue.

Below is a schedule for this training. The teams that are not scheduled train later in the night and already have the space available on Field 3.

These times need to be adhered to, as the senior teams already have their times allocated for training.

The training is strictly on Field 2, NO TRAINING ON FIELD 1
