Message to supporters/players/parents - Update on Futsal extension and supporters shirts:
After the heat interrupted the social comp a couple of weeks ago the YWCA was approached to see if it would permit us using the hall for an extra week to catch up the games we lost due to extreme weather. There was also the consideration of the commencement of the outdoor season on 10 March. The Y has responded stating it is possible but only at a full cost to us. We've also had little interest across the board in hosting the extra games. With all this in mind, plus the fact that the Y has charged us for the week we couldn't use the facility, we really have no option but to finish up at the end of this week. This is somewhat disappointing but there seems little option especially with the outdoor season upon us and players committing to club training.
Our club will formally finish up at the Y just before the end of March, meaning we will not be renewing our lease on the hall. We have been endeavouring to locate a more cost effective, safe and suitable location that could host our club and preliminary discussions have already been had. If everything works out, we could well be back on deck in October but it will be at a different location. On behalf of Cal, Chantal, Bruce and myself I'd like to thank everyone for the support over the last couple of seasons as we've tried to grow the sport. Let's hope there's more to come. In the meantime we have formally nominated our U11 development team in the State titles and Mark is working hard on getting them all ready.
In terms of the supporters' shirts, I understand many may not be aware of what the projected delivery time was. We were promised 4 weeks just over 5 weeks ago. For the last three weeks we have been trying to ascertain just what the status of our order is with the company proving very difficult to contact; the very latest information I have from last Friday is that the order is in production and will be delivered 'ASAP' whatever that means. I have asked for something more specific but as of today have not had a reply. It would certainly appear we will not have the shirts this week but once we do get them in, we have a record of who has purchased/ordered them and will post a message on Facebook to advise that they have arrived and can be picked up from the FCQ office in Campbell Street.
Thanks again for your support.
Details of the upcoming state titles are finally coming to light. The attached flyer provides details and from our point of view, Mark Guymer has been working hard with the development team we are taking away. Regular training sessions have been organised each with with Mark leading the way! Contact Mark on firstname.lastname@example.org for more info. A flyer can be downloaded at the link below.

Welcome back everyone.
For those of you who may not know Chantal CAIRD has recently resigned and commenced employment at Lionheart Fitness in Campbell Street, Rockhampton.
Four years ago Chantal commenced running futsal from the YWCA with 50 junior players. She has managed to grow the competition to around 170 juniors and 50 senior players in 2018.
This has been a tremendous effort and we would like to thank her for her commitment to our game and wish her all the best for the future.
Under 11 training Squad for State Futsal Titles
Coach Mark has held the second training session for players desirous for consideration of selection in the Rockhampton Under 11 futsal team to travel to the State Titles in Brisbane in April 2018. Sessions will take place on a regular basis over the next few weeks.
2018 Fast Futsal is now open for registration.
Following on from our successful Junior Summer Comp, we have now opened up and are taking team nominations for a SENIOR FUTSAL SOCIAL COMPETITION(16+) based in Rockhampton which will run a duration of 10 weeks. The emphasis on this comp is SOCIAL so we have included the over 35’s in this comp, so dust off the joggers and futsal boots! Yes ladies, you are included in this comp and I am sure you will give the boys a run for their money!
I take great pride in being able to deliver a smooth and hassle free competition with clear communication between all team coordinators and players with as much notice as possible given in the event of forfeits etc. All information regarding games will be released weekly via, email, Facebook and our CQ Futsal Club website by Friday of each week.
As we have our own venue, all games will be played at this facility and depending on teams that are submitted it may be required that we play over 2 nights(over 35’s you may get your own night).
As our club is affiliated through Football Queensland, there are pathways for teams to further their game by attending state titles etc. One of our junior players was lucky enough to have been chosen to attend and play with Bundaberg Futsal at the National titles in Sydney over the Christmas break.
Registration through www.myfootballclub.com.au -$35.00
Game Fees – $45.00 per team paid on the night to a club representative prior to taking the court
I would like to now encourage clubs and individuals to submit teams via the attached team nominations form to myself by no later than 14th of April. Please see the attached flyer for information and contact details.
If you have any further queries please do not hesitate in contacting myself via phone or email. Why not also check out CQ Futsal Club Facebook page that is updated on a daily basis that also has lots of cool videos and information linked to it- it is just a click away!
I look forward to meeting all our senior players in the coming weeks and trust we have a great social competition!

Recently we launched our new club with a media launch at the YWCA in Rockhampton. The following week we ran some trial games to 'test the waters' and then on Tuesday evening the U10 competition kicked-off the Futsal season proper. Below is a link to an article about the launch from the Morning Bulletin while you can also see some images from the launch and the trial games.
