It is important that players play in teams and against players of similar ability, wherever possible. This promotes enjoyment and serves to keep players involved in our sport for longer.

Sometimes parents find this difficult because they have built friendships with other parents in the lower age groups. Occasionally players find this difficult as well, for similar reasons. However, children find new friends very quickly, and will enjoy their game more if they are playing in an appropriately levelled competition.

Football Brisbane’s competition structure is based on several divisional levels – Brisbane Youth Premier League (BYPL) and Divisions 1 to 6.

The Director of Coaching nominates our teams for these divisions based on their levels of ability.



First Teams

2019PHFC- RPG05429

From U12 to U16 first team trials are organized at the end of each year. Usually, they will be a combination of external player triallists and players within the club who are invited to trial. Invitations are based on assessments done by the coaching staff, with the support of the Director of Coaching, across the year. If a child has not been invited to trial, a parent may still request an opportunity for that child. That request will be accepted.

We aim to finalise First Teams before the end of the year, so those teams can commence training ASAP in the New Year.



Divisional Team Grading

2019PHFC- GF- U12G- RGP10111

Divisional teams are selected following the sign-on days in the New Year.

The DOC and coaches are informed in the grading process by coaching assessments from the previous year.

Notes for divisional grading

§       Players will be graded according to a mix of ability and potential.

§       Friendship requests will only be considered if there are two or more teams playing at the same level.

§      The decision of the technical team is final.

§      Boys and girls are expected to attend the grading session for their age group.

Only in exceptional circumstances do we suggest children play in a higher age group. A common example of having to ask players to move up an age group is when the club needs enough players to form a team in the higher age group. It is best to form a team, then tell players across two age groups we do not have enough players to form two age-specific teams.


  Goalkeeper Development


2019PHFC- RPG05400              

Pine Hills FC provides goalkeeper development for players interested in playing in this position.

Experienced coaches are used to organize and deliver these sessions.

Players are grouped according to age groups and then skill level where needed.

During this program we develop the basic goalkeeper skills, including the various handling/catching and diving techniques. We also look to improve the player’s footwork and agility.

Through these programs we hope to make the football experience of the young player that much more enjoyable and give them a love for the great game of football.
