As a club the interest of players, officials and spectators safety is of great importance. Due to issues arising on Field 2 throughout the year, one of our plans to help alleviate problems is by having a permanent ground official on the field. The other was to place a white spectator line away from the sideline.
We are having issues with people respecting the clubs safety initiative. And unfortunately it is coming from our club people. This new plan is for everyone’s safety.
If you are given instructions by a ground official you are expected to follow the instructions to the letter. The club will not accept anyone showing disrespect towards our ground officials. We do have the right to remove or refuse entry to anyone not adhering to the FFA Spectators Code of Behaviour.
We are only trying to keep everyone safe and help everyone enjoy the game of football being played.
If you find that you are unable to accept the clubs new safety initiative, then perhaps this club is not for you.

If you wish to discuss the new safety initiative further, we are at the club on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s after 5pm.
The Mini-Roo presentations will be held on Saturday, 26th August.
Teams will play in a mini carnival and age groups will be presented with their trophies during the carnival. This is a fun day allowing teams to have their end of year celebrations and have a kick with their mates.
A draw for the carnival and presentation will be posted closer to the day.
The Competition Aged presentation date will be posted shortly.
Like a broken record, we keep repeating ourselves –
PLEASE PUT GOALS AWAY AFTER TRAINING AND IF YOU ARE THE LAST GAME OF THE DAY AND LOCK THEM UP.
(We would like to thank those that do put the goals away and obviously this is not directed at you)
As we near the end of the season and the goal mouths start to deteriorate, it is more important now we insure the goals are secure after use.
As a club we do not have an issue with outside people using the fields for training, but these people leave/put the unlocked goals in the goal mouths and shoot goals for hours on end. This then wears out the goal mouths and over time kills the grass.
For us to have ideal conditions for teams to play their semi finals this year we all have to pitch in and insure the goals are away. If you see your team has left the goal out, please remind your coach or gather a few people to help put them away.
A field schedule is always located at the clubhouse or at the Mudgeeraba Tent on Field 3. Before you go to your game have a look and see if you are the last game. If the padlock is locked please inform a committee member so we can secure the goals.
To also help with the condition of the goal mouths, please do not train inside them. It is clearly visible now where the wear is on the field, so please restrict your training in these areas. Every little bit helps.
We appreciate your help with this matter.
Sunday 16th July
All Mudgeeraba Fields are OPEN for games today.
If you are playing away, please check that clubs field status via their website or Facebook
Due to the clubs new safety initiative, an extra line has been marked outside of Field 2. This line is the spectator line. Our hopes are that this line will keep our officials, players and spectators safe.
No spectators are permitted to cross this line whilst a game is being played. Our ground official will be present to assist spectators if needed.
We appreciate everyone’s support in the implementation of this new procedure.
