Equipment & Training

Club Kit & Equipment 


Training Bags - Each team will be provided with a bag of balls for training which includes some cones and bibs. 

Playing Kit – Each team will be provided with a playing strip for wearing on match days. Players must play in club black socks, club shorts, shin pads and football boots. Please ensure the playing kit is kept together week on week and we suggest a washing roster be started to manage this. 


The training kit is returned to the Club at the end of the season.  Players can keep their playing shirts although please return the plastic tubs they were issued in to the Club.


Training 

Training dates and times are determined by individual teams. We will allocate each team an area of the field to train on and we ask that you train in this area each week to avoid any confusion. All players must train with football boots and shin pads.

Games

Games commence on Saturday 24 April. Fixtures are allocated and released by Football Brisbane usually a week or so before this.
