Volunteering at Bargara FC
Bargara FC is one of the largest football clubs in Bundaberg and Wide Bay. Volunteers are the lifeblood of our club. They ensure over 270 players enjoy football year-round. Our Club simply wouldn’t survive without volunteers. Whether it’s coaching, becoming a leader, joining our committee or just helping at events, training or game day, football gives you a chance to meet like-minded people and help your local community.
We require more volunteers for:

If you are interested in volunteering for a position, please contact Leesh Garson via email at email@example.com.
Code of Conduct – Junior & Senior Players, Parents, Coaches and Managers
During the registration process, you will be asked to agree to the club’s Code of Conduct. This Code of Conduct has been introduced as a formal recognition of how the Bargara Football Club expects its parents/friends/relatives, coaches, managers, team officials and players to conduct themselves at training, game day and any club functions. Bargara Football Club has a fine record of sportsmanship. However, it is appropriate that a Code of Conduct be formalised to ensure a safe, pleasant and friendly experience for the children, parents and many hard-working volunteers.
Sport plays a role in promoting physical fitness and a healthy lifestyle, in learning to face challenges and strive against the odds, in developing qualities such as self-discipline, perseverance, selflessness, obedience and building self-esteem. Parents are asked to keep in mind that playing football should primarily be for the benefit of their child or children.
Good sportsmanship is an integral part of all that is best about sport. It includes a generous spirit, true respect for others and the game, graciousness, and a steadfast resistance to temptations such as attempting to gain an unfair advantage. Good sportsmanship encapsulates much that is honourable in human behaviour and endeavour.
The Bargara Football Club aims to be an example in terms of player, volunteer and parent behaviour. All players and their support network are bound through the player’s registration to follow its expectations. All those involved in the Club, be they players, coaches, managers, other team officials or supporters are required to adhere to this Code of Conduct.

Our senior teams will train at Bargara FC grounds for a few weeks and then the ATW AFL Grounds until the end of turtle season, which is normally the end of April.
As teams are compiled coaches will be allocated to teams and we will endeavour to provide information regarding this as soon as it is available, but the aim is to keep teams and coaches together for as long as it is possible.
All players are required to have the following equipment.
- Shin Pads – compulsory for training and game days
- Football Boots – compulsory for training and game days

Under 11 and 12 Voluntary Grading
Bargara FC is committed to nurturing and developing each player to the best of their ability. We also strive to achieve the best possible results for our teams, especially those involved in competition football. Last year, a club decision was made to have a voluntary grading system for Under 11 players. Players were invited to trial for the Aspire side and a Development side. We believe this was an outstanding success for all players. It must be noted, that it was voluntary for players to trial for the Aspire side.
In 2021 players will again, if they wish, trial for Aspire teams in both Under 11 and 12 age groups. All players will be involved in two 1-hour sessions which will involve skill development and a game. Players will be notified of selection via email after the trials.
To ensure transparency and equity, no parent of a child who trials will be involved in the selection process. A panel will be formed which will consist of representatives from Bargara FC and an external person. Parents who wish to coach or manage in those respective age groups are welcome to apply after the sides are announced.
