Frequently Asked Questions

Where will my/my child’s game be played?

Half of the games will be played at Coolum FC grounds, whilst the other half will be played at clubs around the Sunshine Coast – the location will depend on which Zone your child is placed in by Sunshine Coast Football. The furthest North will most likely be Noosa, and some games for the older children are played as far as Glass House Mountains.

What afternoon will training be held?

Training is held Monday – Thursday afternoons. The training day & time is completely dependent on your allocated coach’s preference. If there are certain days your child is unable to play, please email officecoolumfc@gmail.com and we will attempt to place them in a suitable team, however it’s not guaranteed.

Can I be a coach for my child’s team?

Absolutely! All of our coaches are volunteers and are incredibly valued! There are multiple coaching/skill development opportunities offered by Sunshine Coast Football & Football Queensland. Our Junior Development Officer can also support coaches in many ways, and can even pop down to your first training sessions to give you a hand, if need be.

Can my child play up or down an age group?

Yes, but we encourage children to play in their own age group, where possible. Forms are required to be signed by parents and approved by SCF if your child wishes to play in another age group.

Can my child be placed in a team with their friend?

We do our absolute best to ensure children are placed in teams with their friends. However, it can not be guaranteed. The most sure fire way of ensuring your child plays with their friends, is early registration & an email to our Registrar – officecoolumfc@gmail.com Teams are allocated shortly after Info/Trial dates.

Do I have to pay my fees in full when I register?

Yes, unless you arrange a payment plan with our Registrar. Please email officecoolumfc@gmail.com
