Training sessions are held at the Brothers Sports Club training fields or at the Touch Grounds opposite CQUni. Coaches may vary training times or days in negotiation with the club, dependant on the needs of players and availability of facilities.
Participation in the Wide Bay League (Division 1 for both Men’s and Women’s teams) requires some travel which will occur on Saturdays.
Referees are supplied by Football Bundaberg Inc. however it is not uncommon for a lines person to be not available in which case you may be asked to supply a person to assist.
Please ensure you familiarise yourself with game rules and club policies. Senior players are expected to abide by FFA code of conduct for players and parents (if applicable) and club dress code.
Senior players are asked to help out with the club’s fundraising at Sunday night raffles at the Brothers Sports Club. During the season we use a roster system for each team.
