MiniRoos Coaches Needed

As a small community club - we try hard to keep football affordable for our players and their families.  One approach to this is asking for our MiniRoos and Junior coaching positions to be performed by Parents / Carers / Friends or Players.  We need your help in 2023 to ensure we have coaches ready to go for the season proper.  IF you coached in 2022, you should have received an email checking on your 2023 plans.  If you want to coach in 2023 - please reach out to Jaymee on email: Football-Ops@pineriversathleticfc.org.au .     We unashamedly need your help so please, give your time if you have it.  Volunteers Rock!

FQ Metro Coaching Courses

We'd love to invite any prospective MiniRoos or Junior Competitive Coaches to take advantage of these great resources offered by FQ.  We simply can't run a MiniRoos program without relying on parent coaches unless we significantly increase your fees - so if you've been thinking about it - take the plunge and help us out in 2023!


Season 2023

Season 2023 is here!!
Please start your registration at Play Football - HERE . NOTE - FOOTBALL QUEENSLAND have made it mandatory for clubs to collect the FQ / FA fees through Play Football at this stage.  We have amended the plans on the site to allow you to only pay that fee when you register on Play Football.  

Then please come to this site and choose Register Now.  You will be able to organise payment for the club component of your fees through this site and can choose a payment plan that suits you.   Originally, FQ were allowing payment plan for the full amount through Squadi, but amended this when they went back to Play Football.  PRAFC apologises for the additional impact this has on any members but it is fully outside our control.

  If you want to play FQPL specifically, please select it as the fees represent the additional costs the club incurs for this competition. Your shorts, socks and polo are included in your fees for FQPL to recognise the presentation standards we want to maintain.

If you would like to play Men's Metro League specifically, please register for this level so that we can gauge how many teams we will need to nominate.

Pricing for Season 2023

As Football Queensland are introducing a new registration system in 2023 the committee has decided to use this system and offer 1 step registration for 2023.  Football Queensland Plan to launch this new tool on the 9th of January, and we will get it live to our community ASAP after this time.   

As this tool restricts our ability to administer the 'volunteer levy'  per registration, we have scrapped this charge for 2023 and slightly increased our fees per player to ensure we don't create a funding problem for the club.  
IF your family has 3 or more players on the one invoice, please make sure to reach out to us as we will issue a manual rebate to you.

AGE GROUP2023 Fees
Miniroos (U6 - U12)$375
Junior Competitive (U13 - U16)$420
Women's Metro$495
Men's Metro$525
FQPL5 U23$625
FQPL5$625


2023 Training - FQPL5 and Metro Women's (Updated!)

Our Metro Women's team are training this week (20th and 22nd December) before taking a break for Christmas and returning on the week of January 3rd.  With changes across the squad, Coach Matt Sumpton is looking to get as many numbers as possible down to make decisions around the shape of Rivers' 2023 campaign.

FQPL5 and FQPL5 U23 Coaches Corey Lovewell and Ty Embrey have been working hard for the past 4 weeks with their squads to build a competitive outfit for the 2023 season and have started their Christmas break, but will be back at it during the week of January 3rd - training at John Davidson oval .

New Supporter - welcome aboard, Zaraffa's!

The wonderful team at Zaraffa's Lawnton have come on board as a supporter for the 2023 season and will be providing discount vouchers and Player of the Match awards to the club.   Please show them your appreciation and support them when you next need a caffeine hit!   The Lawnton store will even be open Christmas Day - so you can survive the early morning "SANTA'S BEEN" wakeup call!!

Scoreboard Commissioned

Our Brand New, $25000 Scoreboard was commissioned last week and will be a huge asset for the club moving forward.

The club was invited to apply for the Federal Government's Stronger Communities program by Petter Dutton MP after being unsuccessful at securing funding through Moreton Bay Regional Council.
While the Commonwealth funding was appreciated, there was still a significant gap, which Pine Rivers Athletic's committee voted to fund after recognising the potential of this asset.   We have been working with Electronic Scoreboards Australia and Electracare to get the board active in time for 2023 and works were completed last week.

Thank you to everyone involved in this amazing project - it looks brilliant!

AGM Results

Following the AGM at the club today we can advise the following:


1) Kate Archer was returned as secretary
2) Jaymee Turner was elected to the Football Operations role
3) Adrian Tynan was elected to the Club Support Role
4) The Financial report was communicated and accepted and will be made available online soon
5) Kylie Briais was retained as the club’s auditor for the upcoming season
6) Members approved the nominated change to approach to our amalgamation with Pine Rivers United Sports Club

Sincere thanks to all our volunteers and committee members through 2022 and particular thanks go to Patrice Hedlefs and Andrew Foster for their contributions as both are unfortunately able to serve on the committee again next year. 
All general committee positions are now open to applications and will be reviewed by the 2023 Management Committee. 

Given Football Queensland’s change to the registration process this year, we will look to how we can provide early season 2023 information to members and prospective members as soon as humanly possible.

Thank you!
