The Sunnybank Saints Soccer Club provides an avenue for amateurs to play soccer in and around the Sunnybank area of Brisbane Australia.
Our club home is in Lister St, Sunnybank, but we also use fields at Calamvale Community College and Sunnybank High School for home games, and play away games across the southern areas of Brisbane and beyond.
We field teams in age levels ranging from Under 5 to Under 16, plus Senior Men, Senior Women, and Over 40 Men. Our club is an incorporated association affiliated with the Queensland Christian Soccer Association (Q.C.S.A.) and has a playing membership of over 750 players.
Starting in 1978 as a sporting body of St. Barnabas Anglican Church, our objectives are to encourage sportsmanship in amateur soccer, to provide inexpensive access to soccer, to improve members soccer skills, to organise practice matches, and to field teams in Q.C.S.A. fixtures.
The playing season generally runs from March to September each year with sign on occurring early due to high levels of demand. Online registration is generally available from November for the subsequent year and sign on day at the field is late January. If you are not registered by sign on day you may not be able to secure a place in a team.
Matches are on Saturdays with junior ages in the morning and senior ages in the afternoon. Over 30 and over 40 age groups play Friday nights.
We rely heavily on volunteer parents for all roles within the club including the executive committee, committee, coaches and managers. All Coaches are expected to participate in both free and paid coaching courses to develop their skills. Coaches who attend designated paid courses will be refunded the course when coaching for the year. Some Senior Teams have allocated Coaches to assist with training.
Training times and locations are allocated after team formation and grading. Players and parents are reminded that training ovals are located at both Lister Street and Calamvale College. Considerable effort is put into accommodating player’s preferred training times and locations, however, due to the large number of teams its not always possible.
