A message from our President

A Christmas Message from our Zillmere Eagles JWAFC President -

As we approach Christmas, I wanted to take the opportunity to share with you my thoughts on the year that was!

In 2017 we fielded 2 senior teams in the both the Men’s and Women’s competitions , 10 junior/youth teams and a great Auskick program for the younger kids. We also had great success with both our U14’s side and Senior Men’s team winning their respective Grand Finals, our new clubhouse was opened and since has given us significant revenue to enable financial growth in 2018. We had many successes this year as a family community sports club, for which we should all be very proud. The Committee has been very busy over the past couple of months planning some great things for 2018. We’ve recruited some sensational new players and coaches for 2018 who are enthusiastic about the success of our club.

As 2017 draws to an end, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all those who contributed to our successes – bring on 2018! On behalf of the Committee, I would like to wish all our Players, Parents, Sponsors and Social Members a very safe and Merry Christmas.

Kind Regards, Chris Healy

Get Started Vouchers Open 25 January 2017

Queensland Government’s Get Started Vouchers program opens 25 January 2017. Please note important changes to the program, specifically around the referral agent process.           

What is Get Started Vouchers?
Get Started Vouchers is an initiative to provide up to $150 to eligible children and young people, to help pay for sport or recreation club membership and/or participation fees through registered clubs.  

If the child/young person or their parent/carer/guardian holds a valid Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card, they can apply online as soon as the round opens. These children do not need to use the referral agent process. 

Updates to the referral agent process
The department is changing the referral agent process to ensure that children and young people who can least afford the costs to participate are supported by Get Started Vouchers.  To ensure that the vouchers are going to those families most in need, a new referral agent process will be implemented from Round 9.   

The department now requires that eligible referral agents register with the department to be able to refer children and young people for a voucher.  Further details regarding referral agent criteria and eligibility requirements are on our website, along with fact sheets for parents and referral agents. Simply Google ‘Get Started Vouchers’ or go to the information here 

A child/young person can be referred to the program by a registered referral agent if they have access to a Health Care Card/Pensioner Concession Card, where there are significant issues that prevent the parent/carer/guardian from applying.  

These issues may include: internet or computer access, computer illiteracy, Living in rural/remote areas with limited internet capability. 

Further to this, referral agents may apply on behalf of a parent/carer/guardian where they are aware of the need for financial support to join their local sport or recreation club, and are assisting in their professional capacity. 

For further information on the Get Started Vouchers program, please refer to the website -

If you have any specific questions about the program then please email the team at
