3.  ***UPDATED 17 February 2021:  

Ensure all players have an Active Play Football registration.  To check this, when viewing the players list from the Team Dugout, ensure all players have the following status:

  • A player will only have Registered - Active status if they have paid in full/committed to a payment plan AND have a PlayFootball registration. 

The $ symbol will indicate payment status:

  •  Paid or  Payment plan
  •  Payment outstanding

  • Alternative PlayFootball status will be:
  - PlayFootball registration required via THIS LINK
  - Payment required

Cut off for eligible registrations to be approved for weekend matches is lunchtime Thursdays for weekend matches. Note: If a player has done a Playfootball registration and is still not ACTIVE it is likely they have not completed payment - ask them to login and check their payment status.


For each match you require :

1. MATCH SHEET - Create a Match Sheet in Sports TG - instructions (including screenshots) on how to do this and what has to happen with them at matches can be found HERE.  

2. PLAYER ID REPORT - Print the ID CARD REPORT from the Team Dugout to have with you at the match (a digital copy is ok too).  Ensure all players have a photograph - if not, ask them to add one to their PlayFootball account (not Taringa reg).

After the match go to Sports TG to enter the final scores and other statistics.

Ensure you are familiar with the 2020 Rules of Competition.

4. Fixture Information

All fixture information is listed at the Sports TG webpage.  This can also be accessed from the Fixtures/Results link on the rhs of the HOME page.

Wet weather information can be accessed here; http://www.footballbrisbane.com.au/junior-wet-weather

Fixtures details can change without notice so it is good practice to check the website shortly before leaving home for a fixture - especially if it is an away fixture.

5. Referee Fees

There are 2 external sources of referees for Taringa:  

Football Brisbane & 

Club Referees (where no Football Brisbane are appointed we are fortunate to have a volunteer (external to the club) that arranges club referees for a number of the local clubs.

Football Brisbane pays Football Brisbane Referees and then invoices the club.

Club Referees will be paid by EFT on submission of a form by them whcih is provided to them by the Club Referee coordinator. .  

The home team is responsible for payment of the referees fees.   Therefore as a manager for home games you need to:

1. Ascertain if you have a full complement (1 x ref & 2 x linesmen) of referees appointed by Football Brisbane.  To do so check HERE. If yes, then no further action is needed (other than leave your match sheet in Rob's office - see below)

2. If no, then check HERE to check if club referees have been appointed & then follow the process below.

3. If no referees have been appointed then be prepared to grab parents or any other volunteers to referee &/or run the lines.

Managers are to email their age-group co-ordinator if the advertised referees do not turn up to the games so that the club can check it is not being charged.

6. Home Ground Game & Training Information for Coaches

Please see this information sheet for important information and requirements at home games & during training.

7. Wet Weather Procedures

The status of the Taringa Rovers grounds is shown on the home page top right hand side - see here

The status of away grounds is listed on the Football Brisbane website here. 
(www.footballbrisbane.com.au -> Competitions -> Junior Wet Weather)

Note  that it is the status of the ground that determines whether or not a game goes ahead, not necessarily the weather.  In the event of imminent rain or after a period of rain it is a good idea to check the ground status prior to leaving home.
