A WORD FROM OUR DIRECTOR
On behalf of the Football Committee I’d like to welcome you to the 2017 season at Pine Rivers United Sports Club.
Since the completion of last season there has been many changes to how football is run at Pine Rivers United. Starting with the amalgamation of all football divisions into one. This will allow football to blossom and grow as we all move in the same direction.
The big thing I would like to remind all our parents and players is that if you are having an issue or would like to raise a point to the committee please don’t be afraid to email me or the committee. We at Pine Rivers United are a family based club and in turn don’t want anyone feeling pressured or unhappy in any way.
Our aim is to provide all our members with the opportunity to play and enjoy their game in a positive, family friendly and inclusive environment. We pride ourselves on excellent junior development initiatives, quality coaching programs, extensive facilities and an inclusive and social atmosphere. We are competitive yet preserve a family, community environment where participation is encouraged.
This Information & Welcome Book contains:
- Important information that will help you decide whether you would like to proceed with registration for yourself or for a family member
- Everything you need to know about the 2017 season if you have already registered.
If you have any questions about the contents of this booklet, or throughout the year, please don’t hesitate to contact me or one of the Football Committee members.
All the very best for the season ahead.
Nathan Charles (Director of Football)
A WELCOME FROM A FEW OF OUR COACHES
Welcome to the 2017 Football Brisbane season with Pine Rivers United Predators.
Thank you for choosing to be a member of our Predator Family. For our returning families – welcome back! For our new families – welcome on board! We hope you find that joining our club for the 2017 season will be a fun and rewarding experience for you and your family. We have had a wonderful response to our Early Bird Sign-on as well as to our pre-season training. We are always happy to have new players so if you know anyone over 18 years of age who is looking for a team, send them down to Rivers.
During the off season, the club management has had a change as well as all three football divisions uniting as one. This can only allow us to go forward and develop strong, fit, competitive football teams here at Pine Rivers United.
Last season wasn’t a great one for our senior men’s teams, except the City League 5 lads who were Premiers and Grand Final Winners. Well done to all involved. In 2017 we hope to rebuild the senior men’s teams and therefore show a better performance on the field.
Finally, we wish all coaches, managers, players and parents a fabulous and enjoyable 2017. Don’t forget to bring the family down to cheer us on at home games. We must also wish the new Football Committee all the best for the coming season as without their tireless efforts, none of us would be able to play the world game.
See you at the Park
Mitchell Bush, Neil Reed and Glenn Turner (Senior Men’s Coaching Team)
For those who don’t know me, I am Ben Winlaw. I will be coaching the under 18’s at the club this year.
I would like to welcome all players, coaches, managers, supporters and all involved in the club in the hope of a successful season for everybody.
Under 18’s is a very important year for the players. We will field a very competitive, fit team for the 2017 season. Not only will the team be strong in our own competition, there is the opportunity for the players to represent the club at higher levels being the reserves and first team.
With the pre-season underway the boys are training hard in preparation for the season that lies ahead.
I urge all supporters to come and support your team at the club whether it is the under 18’s or whichever team your involvement is with the club.. Let’s make 2017 a great season for Pine Rivers.
Yours in Football
