Club Update on 2020 Season

Good Morning


We trust that you are all well and looking out for your family during
this time of uncertainty.

We are sending this out to hopefully provide some clarity around
what is happening with the season.

The Safety and wellbeing of our Members is our priority and we
must follow instructions issued by Football

Federation Australia and Football Queensland and have suspended
all football activities until further notice and

wait patiently for our Governing Body to give us some direction
on how the season will look when we resume.

At this stage we will not be offering any refunds as we are confident
that the season will still run its full course

starting from 14th April 2020 as per FFA statement.

We are not able to run any training at present, however we will
be running some fun skills based activities that you can complete on your own
on our facebook page.  

We wish we had answers for you all but as this is something new
to all of us and after speaking to many people in other organisations we are
all in the same boat. We are all in uncharted waters but our Committee

are remaining positive that we will get through these troubled times
and we ask all our members to

stay proactive in doing your part to contain and prevent the
spread of Covid-19

- Social Distancing measures where possible

- Self-isolating if showing any signs of symptoms

- Increase good Hygiene practices


Thanks for your patience and understanding during these testing

Courier Mail Article about the Club

Here is a copy of the news article from the Courier Mail and it will also be published in the Pine Rivers Press newspaper probably next week.

Keen volunteers seek to form ‘super slick’ football club in Pine Rivers

It is all hands on deck at a fresh-faced football club keen for growth in the north of Brisbane.

PASSIONATE volunteers are determined to “re-establish faith” in a football club with big plans.

Pine Rivers Athletic Football Club (PRAFC) will host its season sign-up day on Saturday.

It comes as the club mounts an ambitious campaign for greater exposure and the appointment of fresh faces in senior management.

“We want to re-establish faith in the club,” club fundraiser and sponsorship co-ordinator Janet Alexander said.

“It is overwhelming but the people are very passionate.

“They have been involved with the club for a long time.

“We have far to go but with more hands it becomes easier and small wins along the way are very encouraging.

“I am doing this for my son and the community and because I think it is worth it.”

Mrs Alexander said there was a groundswell effort taking place at Wendy Allison Park.

PRAFC took over from Pine Rivers United Sports Club in 2018 after the latter ran into financial difficulty.

“We basically had to build our membership from the ground up,” Mrs Alexander said.

“And we’re looking for about 200 new members this season.

“We’ve just elected a new president at our AGM who has a long history with the club.

“We also have a new treasurer and we are doing marketing with an Instagram page for first time.

“We are trying to get more of a presence in the community to encourage people to engage more with physical activity.

“And we’re about to commence a campaign with the community to display their businesses on banners around the field and hopefully gain some revenue for the club.”

Residents interested in signing up can participate in free football drills on Saturday or see how much oomph they can muster with their strikes with a speed radar on hand.

“We ultimately want to be super slick like Albany Creek Excelsior Football Club which has around 1000 members,” Mrs Alexander said.

“Currently we only have one men’s and one women’s team.

“And we are keen to attract more girls because it is no longer just a boys sport.”

Football fans can sign-up from 0900am to 12pm at the PRAFC clubhouse.
