Introduction

  • Players turning 12 years old born in 2008
  • A Volunteer Team Coach is preferred (to keep player costs low/availability of paid coaches)  – this person will be appointed on Muster Day.  An ex-player or parent with previous coaching expertise or coaching course attendance is ideal.

  • Where possible all girl and all boy teams are created and are played in the respective Football Brisbane girls or boys divisions.  However, girls are allowed to play with boys in mixed teams should they choose to do so.
  • The Volunteer Coach will take the team game days and training sessions

2020 Grading & Fixtures

U12s form part of the Football Brisbane competition.  Teams travel home and away.  Boys will play in boys only divisions and girls will play in girls only divisions.  Girls playing in mixed teams will play in boys’ divisions.

U12s take part in Football Brisbane Grading Games which take place in late February.   U12 registered players will be notified as to the club’s and Football Brisbane’s process as soon as registrations are closed and date/time/place of grading matches are known.  Please note that grading games are NOT optional as they form an important part of the season and ensure that all teams are placed ‘like with like’ as far as is possible.

Where possible boys teams are placed in a Football Brisbane Boys only competition and girls teams are placed in a Football Brisbane girls only competition.

Season Fixtures are controlled by Football Brisbane and are not usually announced until March once all grading games have taken place and teams are placed into their relevant division.
