Avoid Disappointment- Register to Play Now

All members that register to play by Wednesday, 31st January, will be guaranteed placement in a team.

As we get closer to having to finalise teams for the season commencement, any registration made after this date, will not be guaranteed a place in a team.

We urge all members to register now to avoid disappointment. Even if you played last year,  you are still required to re-register again for 2018

MyFootballClub Registrations OPEN – 3rd January, 2018

In order to play football for Mudgeeraba Soccer Club all players must be registered to play on

Please be advised that the best time to register is late at night and early in the morning. As all players across Australia will be registering to play football at their clubs, the servers will be slow and it can take a long time to complete registrations. We recommend you register before coming to the Club for Sign On.

The age group you play for will be the age you turn in 2018, for example, Johnny turns 8 in June, 2018, he will play in Under 8’s. If your child wish’s to play football but only turns 5 in 2018, they will be able to play in Under 6’s but will have to play Under 6’s again in 2019.

Please update your photo when confirming your personal details.

When completing your registration please select ‘Manual Payment at Club’, print out your invoice and come down to Sign On Day to pay and collect your uniform.

Team Allocations from 29th January, 2018

These are the days we place the Mini-Roo players into teams.

This is not a trial or grading session. We make teams from previous years, friends that wish to play together or new players. If coaches still have a team from last year, please forward you list to De – We will only accept players that have registered on MyFootballClub.

If you are interested in coaching, please put your name forward on the day. All our coaches are volunteers, usually Dad’s and Mum’s. The club does provide coaching courses for the inexperienced coach. We will also be having our Director of Coaching available on training nights to assist coaches. Each team will require a coach before we can complete Team Allocations. If we have no volunteers for coaching a team, then we will require a team contact, who we will need to coordinate the team whilst a coach is organised between the teams parents.

Those players selected for Kangaroo’s will not need to attend.

We will have dates up for extra trials for players who were unable to attend in 2017, this includes Competition Age players(Under 12+).

Coaches Meeting – 5th January, 2018

This will be split into 2 time slots, Mini-Roos and Competition Age.

Competition Starts – 16th  & 17th February, 2018

Friday, 16th February – Under 16’s & 18’s begin their season.
Saturday, 17th February – Under 6’s to 15’s begin their season.

We have been advised that the first 6 rounds of the season are grading rounds (Lightning Premiership). Competition Aged Teams (Under 12 +) will be graded after the 6 rounds to see if they are best suited for their divisions. This does not count for the general season, no points are carried over. The proper season will begin and hopefully every team is in the right divisions.

Once the draw is out, you may notice that the draw has a lot more home games at the start of the season and none in August. We have requested that no home games are played in August to allow the fields time to recover before the Gold Coast Champions Cup is held at the end of September.

Changes and Additions.

There may be changes to dates and times of the above calendar.

If we are forced to make change, we will post the change on the website and change the calendar.

2018 Trial Dates

Due to the Commonwealth Games next year and associated field closures, Football Gold Coast has decided to start the 2018 junior competition from 16/17th February.

Because of this time frame we are forced to start trails early. The committee has decided to start trails before December to avoid people missing out during the Christmas Holiday period.

The trials will be held at the Mudgeeraba Showgrounds (enter via Mudgeeraba Rd).

The trails have been split into two groups, JPL/Div1 Trials and General Trials. ( Under 9’s to 11’s will only have the JPL trials, everyone is encourage to try out, but those who do not wish to trial will need to come down to team allocation nights, to be announced at a later date)

Whats the difference between both types of trials?

JPL/DIV 1 TRIALS – These trails are for players with a higher football skill. These players must be committed to training, game days and extra competitions, eg carnivals. Everyone is welcome to trail.

GENERAL TRIALS – These trials are for players still developing their football skills. These trials are for the lower division teams.

What happens if I can not make the trials?

We are aiming to leave spaces in teams for players to be able trial in the new year. We are aware that players are doing other sports and may find it difficult to make trails. Email Fraser Cuba – with your name, player name, contact details and team you played in last so he can make a note of your absence.

Do I need to register?

Player registrations on MyFootballClub open 3rd January, 2018. Players will be able to register on/after this date. We will copy the list of current members from this year and will make it our check list. New members are welcome to trial and your details will be collected before the trails.

Details on how to register on MyFootballClub will be posted at a later date.

Please turn up earlier than your start time to have your name marked off the list.

If you have any questions, please email Paul Cameselle –



Fines for Dissent

In an effort to curb player abuse towards referees, from this weekend’s games (28/4/17) ALL Mudgeeraba players who are given a card for dissent (Y2 or R6) will have to pay the associated fine before they will be able to play the next game.

Once the club has received notification of the fine, the player and coach/manager will be informed and the player will be given an invoice for payment. Until the fine is paid the player will be suspended.

Mudgeeraba Soccer Club is supporting Football Gold Coast, Football Queensland and FFA in their Zero Tolerance towards abuse of referees by players and officials.
