Living Life to the Full!
Living Life to the Full!
The Riverlife Baptist Football Club desires that women and men, whilst training for and playing football – connect in a team and learn to live the full life that God intends for them.
To compete, players need to agree to & complete the online registration form as well as pay the required registration fees. We only field teams if we have sufficient player interest and coach availability.

Teams are determined on ability. The coaches make assessments and players are assigned to an appropriate team. We try to keep friends together but for the integrity of the competition and consistency, sometimes is requires balancing out.
We expect players to play for the whole season and also expect regular attendance at Monday or Tuesday night training. The night a team will train will be finalised late February.
We believe that to be our best, we need to make every effort to train. Personal circumstances may not always make this possible. When these arise, players should discuss with their coach.
For each team there is one mid-week training session between 7:15 – 9:15 pm at Kingfisher Park, Gem Rd, Kenmore. If a player cannot make one night, then they could join another team for fitness and individual skill development. Coaches will advise teams of training cancellations due to weather through SMS by 6.30 pm.
Our home ground is at Kingfisher Park, Gem Rd, Kenmore.
We play in the QCSA West Zone, against teams in South-East Qld. The greatest distance travelled is to Fernvale or Beaudesert.
Players are expected to arrive at the ground at least 30 minutes before play unless some other arrangement is made with the coach. Teams share the responsibility of setting up or pulling down nets and posts. In the event of wet weather, leading to unsafe play or potential damage to fields, players will be messaged if a game is to be postponed. On some occasions we will know on a Friday evening, but it is usually on a Saturday morning.
All teams play with dark blue (navy) shorts and blue socks. A very limited supply of socks and shorts are available from the club for purchase – it is preferable if players purchase their requirements through their local sports store. Jerseys are provided at the ground on match day.
Following registration, players need to keep in regular communication with their coach and fellow players. The best way is to attend every training session and matches. Each team member throughout the season will be asked to help with some team duties e.g. washing drink bottles, cleaning jerseys, and assisting keeping our home ground in good order.
The QCSA have processes to select a representative men’s and women’s team to compete at State Titles against other Christian representative teams from other associations. The State titles are usually held mid‐season. Following State Titles a state team is selected to play at National titles usually held early October. At preseason competitions you have the opportunity to identify if you are interested in being considered. National competitions exist for Men, Women, Junior Men (U18) and Junior Women (U16).
