Message from Joe Fenech

Technical Directors Brief:

The role of a Technical Director is to manage and oversee all player and coaching development within the club. In addition, the Technical Director makes sure that all coaches are following the club curriculum, as well as implementing the club philosophy and playing style across the entire club, no matter the age group, SAP; QPL; Divisional; Male or Female.

My role and responsibilities as the Technical Director at Hawks FC are to manage and oversee all day-to-day football operations and act as a liaison between the Board of Directors and full and part- time staff. 

Areas include but are not limited to: 

  • Developing and managing the coaching and administrative structure for the club 
  • Implementing the club’s coaching curriculum 
  • Supervising player training and development 
  • Overseeing the facility’s management 
  • Delivery and ownership of the club’s mission in order to develop every player to their fullest potential.

Preparing for 2018:

October and November were very busy months with the selection and appointment of coaches and the selection of players for 2018 teams. The trials identified players for Komodo's; SAP, QPL and some divisional, and development squads.

Trials were well attended with each age group drawing the attention of well over sixty players all vying for just 15 spots per squad. I can report that every player who attended the trials was allocated a team that best suited their needs.

The club can now boast that all QPL and SAP teams are full.  Players and parents have accepted letters of offer and deposits have been paid. It should be noted that HP Hawks were amongst the first clubs club to submit squad forms to FQ prior to the deadline.

Female Football:

I was very pleased with the numbers that attended the trials and considering that this year we have commenced trials three months earlier than usual the numbers at trials have been encouraging. 

We are finalizing an agreement with CAV Rd School which will see girls from the school signing for the Hawks. As a QPL club the Hawks are the closest club offering elite and social level football.

We have appointed Malcolm Allen as head coach of the WBPL squad. Malcolm comes to the club having coached the Olympic NPL ladies this past season.  Female Football is at the forefront of our planning not only within the club but also within our immediate area and local schools.

Coach Development:

In 2017, fourteen club coaches were put through an FFA senior coaching licence course. In 2018 I will run two more FFA accredited courses in house.

We have four coaches who have attended and completed advanced coaching courses ( C Lic ) namely Marek Madle; Pablo Aviles; Michael Frederiksen and Amir Kasa.

In 2018 I have scheduled two Grass roots coaching courses which I will run in house. 

Parent coaches will be assisted by the provision of session plans and will be guided by a training schedule to ensure that young players are being exposed to the fundamental skills.

Coaches meetings will be held on a monthly basis where I will run both practical  and theory sessions to ensure that the clubs playing style and philosophy is delivering consistency in terms of "Playing The Hawks' way" 

The "Soccer Tutor" session planning computer program will be introduced to enable club coaches to design session plans in line with the club and national curriculum. The aim is to develop coaches, get them accredited by investing in them because better coaches means better players. 

2018 will be a transition period for the club. The focus will be on creating a culture of "When better is possible Good is not enough"  

In terms of football results the performances, as we adapt to our playing style are going to be far more important than the results particularly in the age groups U-13 to U-16. 

Our U-9 to U-12 players will be exposed to training cycles that will ensure that they master the four core skills as they lay the foundations to playing a possession style of football where each player is comfortable on the ball and confident in making football decisions. We will not be developing robots at this club! We want exciting creative and risk-taking players who play to win but doing so with flair and intelligence.

We are well ahead of our targets in terms of football and provided that as club members we are all aiming at the same goals and objectives I expect 2018 to be a very big year for The Hawks. 

I want to mention that there have been many people who have been tremendous in assisting on many fronts too many to mention in this brief report. Without their continued support it would have been very difficult. I am very proud to be contributing to what I think will be a great project run by great people for the benefit of great parents, players and supporters.Remember regardless of what level of football you are involved in we are all in it together. United we stand!

Hawks 2018 Registration & Uniform Fees

Hawks requires significant revenue each year to cater for a wide range of activities involving more than 1000 registered players.  The main component of income is through registration fees which includes fees for Football Federation Australia (FFA), Football Queensland (FQ) and Football Brisbane (FB).

Sponsorship and Fundraising are key income streams accounting for a significant amount of funds to reinvest into the club and reduce registration fees.  Hawks are always looking for more ways to integrate with the local community in a mutually beneficial way so please get in touch if this interests you.  We are continuously looking at different ways to diversify our income and we hope to launch some of these initiatives in 2018 to further reduce registration fees.

As with all clubs our size there is also significant operating costs which range from electricity, water, facility maintenance, administration, Technical Director and one of our biggest investments in 2018 is our coaching structure to enable us to provide the best possible development and enjoyment for our players.  Hawks will be one of the few local clubs to meet the coach licencing criteria required in FQL and SAP programs.

Whilst setting the 2018 registration fees the committee undertook a wide range of activities including club information nights, budget and strategy planning day with key stakeholders and finally several workshops to ensure we got the balance right between sustainability for the club and affordability for our members.

We have taken several measures into consideration including:
  • Keep all fees as close as possible to the 2017 amount or lower
  • Reduction in Under 6 - Under 8 fees and a continued discount for girls fees to encourage higher participation in these segments
  • Standardising the fees structure with a tiered approach to make it more readily understandable across all areas of the club
  • All Community teams base rego fee to be kept below $500, SAP below $1000 and QPL below $2000
  • Ensure we are competitive as possible in regards to SAP and QPL whilst not imposing these costs on the rest of the club.  The fee to reflect the quality of coaching and overall product provided.
  • We have not included any capital improvement projects with any work to be completed sourced through grants, sponsors, volunteers or a combination.  There is always plenty of work to be done but we need to consolidate in 2018 and keep costs down.

Coaching Levy applies to any teams outside of QPL/SAP who have a paid coach.  This is not payable if you have a volunteer coach.  Joe Fenech is going to be undertaking coach education programs throughout the year which will help our volunteer coaches grow and develop both themselves and our players.  Wherever possible we encourage the use of volunteer coaches to help keep football affordable.

Volunteer Levy is reduced to $50 and applies to every family.  This is 100% refundable at the end of the season and we have budgeted for 100% of our members to help in some way in 2018.  We have plans in place to better engage our members in volunteer activities so keep an eye out for how you can help or approach the club if you wish to contribute to making the club a better place.


Uniform Fees have not been included in registration fees for transparency purposes.  We are hoping sponsors will be looking to get involved in this space which will reduce or take care of these costs.  If you or anyone you know is interested in sponsoring any teams please contact the club for more information.

All Queensland Premier League (QPL), Skills Acquisition Program (SAP) and Brisbane Women's Premier League (BWPL - tbc) players will be required to purchase a kit valued at $300 including:

  • Tracksuit
  • Polo Shirt
  • Training Shirt (x2)
  • Black Shorts (x2)
  • Socks (x2)
  • Kit Bag

Hawks will provide a playing shirt for all teams from Under 13 upwards.  All other teams will be required to purchase a playing kit if they do not already have one.  Please note in 2019 we will be introducing one club playing shirt design from Tiny Tots right through to QPL so keep this in mind when ordering uniforms in 2018.  We encourage members to hand down any wearable playing shirts to younger siblings or players at the club wherever possible.

  • Playing Shirt $40
  • Black Shorts $25
  • Socks $15

Merchandising plans are coming together nicely so stay tuned as we launch with our new playing kit and supporter gear which we reckon will be the envy of all clubs in 2018!

One Club Day remains one of the best days @ Hawks and will continue to be included as part of every players registration fees.  The provision for rides, trophies, team photos and a whole lot of fun will remain a quintessential part of being a Hawk.

Payment Plans are in place for registration fees and Hawks will again have available a Financial Hardship Bursary system for any players with a minimum of 1 player per QPL and SAP team to ensure financial hardship does not prevent any players from fulfilling their football dreams.  We will work out a way to keep children playing football regardless of their financial status so please contact the club for further details.

Overall our aim this year has been to provide sustainable and affordable playing options for all players across all age groups and skill levels. 

If you want the elite development programs like QPL and SAP you will have the best credentialed coaches and support in the business.  If you are interested in a kick around with your old mates in the Over 35's on a Friday night, we have you covered.  If you are in meeting new people or playing with your friends from school we have that option too. 

No matter your level of skill, ability or passion Hawks caters for your footballing needs in 2018.

We hope you all enjoy another great season up at the hill!

Warm regards

Holland Park Hawks Committee

Boundary Road and Whites Hill Reserve access Road intersection upgrade

Brisbane City Council is planning to upgrade the Boundary Road and Whites Hill Reserve access Road intersection at Coorparoo as part of the Projects Attacking Congestion program.

Council is committing $1.3 billion on 90 road improvement projects from 2016 to 2020 to tackle congestion in Brisbane, by focusing on a range of solutions to improve the existing road network.

The project aims to reduce congestion and improve safety at the intersection by improving access into and out of Whites Hill Reserve. Works will include:

  • signalising the Boundary Road and Whites Hill Reserve access Road intersection
  • constructing new left and right turn lanes on Boundary Road
  • constructing new left turn and right turn lanes on the Reserve access Road
  • removing approximately 22 trees to improve sightlines for motorists
  • installing traffic islands
  • associated turfing and landscaping works.

Construction is planned to start in mid to late 2017. Every effort will be made to minimise impacts to the environment and additional plantings will be undertaken in accordance with Council’s offset planting policy.
