Other Important Information:

Training Shirts and Uniforms:

Training shirts were ordered some time ago. Due to circumstances outside of our control the shirts and other merchandise offered in the registration package have been delayed. We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience and will endeavour to ensure every child receives a new playing shirt as soon as stocks arrive.

Our focus will be on ensuring new players to our club are prioritised to receive a shirt/shorts/socks. Arrangements have been made to ensure all children have a Bargara FC uniform in the interim.

Uniforms and merchandise can be purchased from our shop in the shed. Parents and players can pay by paywave or cash.

It is a requirement that all players wear shin pads at training and during the game.

Teams

Our small, but dedicated team of volunteers are working extremely hard to organise teams and assign their coaches.  Team lists will be emailed to coaches for their final checks and balances well before the season commences. All Miniroos teams will be announced at training on Wednesday (U/6-U/9) and Thursday (U/10 and U/11) by the coaches. Training will finish 10-15 minutes earlier than the scheduled times to allow for coaches to assemble and communicate with their teams and parents. With regard to team selections the following criteria are taken into account:

  • Our club philosophy is to try and keep existing teams together for as long as possible. This may change depending on the number of returning players and coaches from the previous season
  • In some age groups the number of children on the field increases. This is the case from U/7 to U/8 (4 players to 7 players) and U/9 to U/10 (7 players to 9 players). In these cases, teams can be collapsed from the previous season and children distributed to other sides to cater for the larger squads
  • Children can play two seasons in U/6 if they are 5 years old. We therefore have tried to keep 5-year-old children together so they can progress through subsequent age groups in the future, rather than splitting teams up prematurely
  • We try to cater for all parent and player requests when compiling the team lists, however on rare occasions this is not possible
  • If parents want to discuss the team their child has been allocated, please discuss with the coaches in the first instance. If the matter still has not been resolved further discussion can occur with the President, Dave Campbell (0400304766)

Team Draws

Draws for all competitions can be located at the link below.

At this stage Miniroos fixtures have not been uploaded, but coaches will ensure all information around game time is distributed in sufficient time.

Game Day

All Miniroos matches are played at Martens Oval. The address is 8 Ritchie Street, Norville. Again, check in requirements need to be followed to enter the facility. This is available on the entry gates. Check in procedure will be the same as in 2021, utilising the Check In QLD app.

We encourage parents to communicate with their coaches if they are unable to attend matches. This enable replacements to be found in suitable time.

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.

Training Sessions

Training Information can be found here:

The philosophy of Bargara FC regarding training can be summarised below:

  • For most of the training session all children will train together as a squad
  • There may be occasions where coaches will want to work exclusively with their team
  • To ensure all children are developed and have the ability for dedicated skill improvement, small groups of children may be coached together to work on a particular skill or position
  • We are extremely grateful to have the services of Madelyn McCracken to support our coaches and players as Miniroos Coaching Director. Mads will be present during training and game days

Acadamies

Bargara FC will run both the Aspire Academy (led by Mark Biddle) and the Girls Academy (led by Madelyn McCracken) in 2022. More detailed information regarding these programs will be released in the coming weeks and details posted on our Facebook page and website. 

Other Details

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.

Playing Equipment

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
  • Bargara FC Red Socks – purchased from club
  • Bargara FC Red Shorts – purchased from club

Bargara FC socks and shorts will be sold at the club on junior training days.  Payment for socks and shorts can be made by cash or card.

Volunteering at Bargara FC

I would like to thank the committee members and volunteers who make this club highly successful.  These wonderful people sacrifice so much of their own time to help players access the beautiful game of football.  As President of this club, I have been inspired by the work ethic and determination of committee members and volunteers to improve and develop new and existing players.  In my conversations with them, they all speak of their passion to develop every player’s ability.  As the Bargara Football Community, we can truly celebrate that we are inclusive and that we are a family club.

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:

  • Coaching
  • Managing
  • Uniforms
  • Committee Members

If you are interested in volunteering for a position, please contact Holly Kemps via email at secretary@bargarafc.org.au.

COVID

Bargara FC will ensure rigorous policies are followed regarding COVID management.

All players need to be checked in to meet our tracing requirements. The club recommends following this link below to ensure this is completed, but it can also be done through QR codes stationed around the training facility.
