Club Retention and Recruitment Guide
Football Queensland have created this guide, which includes FFA research and suggestions to assist clubs with retention and recruitment strategies for the new season.
Community Club Media Guide
Football Queensland has developed a Community Club Media Guide to support grassroots clubs with best-practice advice for communication, media management, social media and website content. For further support in these areas, see our FQ Contacts page and drop us a line.
Player retention is vital to any sport and club and according to research from Football Federation Australia (FFA), one of the main reasons players leave football is poor coaching.
FFA’s Club Coach Coordinator (CCC) program has been developed to address this challenge and provide relevant and valued coach support in a club environment.
Football Queensland encourages clubs to appoint a CCC to enhance the coaching and playing experience for all involved in their local club.
When appointing a CCC, consider someone who will take on the following responsibilities:
- Supporting a positive club coaching culture
- Working to actively recruit new coaches
- Mentoring and supporting club coaches
- Ensuring the coaches have access to learning opportunities and resources

For further information on the CCC program, contact Football Queensland Game Development Officer Scott Grimshaw at email@example.com.
‘We Pay You Play’
Football Queensland (FQ) and Nexus Partners have partnered to grow football across the state with financial help to both football members and clubs.
Whenever a registered football club member, or family member connected to a club, takes out a home loan, investment loan or business loan, a portion of the commission (0.44% inc. GST) will go towards paying their season registration fees. Any left-over amounts, after the registration is paid, will go directly towards supporting their football club.

The App is designed to help clubs identify, assess, quantify, manage and monitor risks on matchdays with the assistance of an easy-to-use checklist. Key benefits include pre-loaded lists of Affiliated Clubs, GPS locations to pinpoint venues, the ability to add photographs of risks and the ease of keeping records (the app automatically saves and reports on the data entered by the clubs).
Play By The Rules

The result is a wealth of information, resources, tools and free online training designed to increase capacity and capability of administrators, coaches, officials and players in preventing and dealing with issues such as discrimination, harassment, child safety and integrity in sport.
