Welcome to Silkwood Junior Football Club

OUR CLUB

 Silkwood Junior Football Club is a long-established club in the Silkwood community catering for children between the ages of 3-15 years old, (player numbers permitting).

The soccer season runs for approximately 6 months of the year: March through to September.  Sign-on day is held in February & Pre-season games start early March. Each Saturday teams play at the Silkwood Grounds (Centenary Park) as part of the Johnstone River Football Association competition. Johnstone River (JR) consists of 5 clubs in our district- Innisfail, Tully, Mission Beach, Boogan & Silkwood.

Training is held in Silkwood every Wednesday from 5pm-6pm. Game times each Saturday are via a draw system & are supplied to players at training each week; usually first games are held around 1.30pm, last games being 3pm. Each team usually only has one game each Saturday depending on team numbers & weather.

Each player is placed in a team depending on age; their age is defined by the age they turn for the calendar year, for example if your child is 8 in September they will be Under 8 for that season. Except for not having enough players to make a team then age groups can be combined to make a team; i.e. Under 8/9.

Players aged 3-5 years old do not have games on a Saturday however throughout the season they may be invited to join events in addition to their training activities on a Wednesday. Players from 5-10 play Small Sided Football, where there is no points ladder. Players 11-15 years old play competition as of FFA rules & compete in finals etc.

Our Club players registration fees are kept as low as possible to give every child in our community the opportunity to play, as a Club we must pay affiliation fees to organisations above us; being Johnstone River, FNQ Football, Football Queensland & Football Australia. The structure of breakdown of fees is available to anyone that would like to look at it.

Silkwood operates a canteen every Saturday for the Johnstone River fixtures (games). Our club has a roster each season for parents to volunteer in the canteen.  This consists of a 2 hour shift serving, or cooking, in the canteen. Usually families have 2 maybe 3 shifts in the canteen for a season. All parents are encouraged to fulfil their shifts in the canteen as the funds we make from the canteen gives the club the opportunity to give back to our players.

In addition to the canteen, Silkwood has a liquor permit; therefore bar & designated drinking area. Our trading days are Wednesday, Friday & Saturdays. Everyone is welcome to come and have a beverage during bar trading hours.  Alcohol purchased elsewhere is not allowed to be brought onto the Silkwood Junior Football Club grounds.

Our club also encourages anyone who has apparel/uniforms & boots that they no longer have a use for (outgrown) to bring them into the Clubhouse to be offered to new players or those that need them!

All our coaches are volunteers & have working with children blue cards.

Our club is run by volunteers and we always encourage new people, if they are interested, to offer help at any level.
