Welcome to the Birregurra Football Netball Club
The Birregurra FNC has had a huge off-season including recruitment, signing up coaches, pre-season training, appointing a new committee and a strong focus on fitness and player development.
We remain committed to sourcing funding for our new social/ club rooms including commissioning of architectural and conceptual drawings to ensure we are shovel ready if funding can be secured. You will notice a small upgrade to the kitchen facilities with a tidy up and compliance works now completed in readiness for the season ahead.
Please ensure you visit our online club store for all your Birre merchandise and wear it loud and proud on game day.
New to town? Call into the club where you are very welcome as a new player, member or spectator.
A huge thank you to all our sponsors and to our club community, please ensure you support all our important club partners in 2023.
Running a sporting club is not unlike managing a small organisation, including people and culture, OHS, admin, finance, rosters, compliance, 300 participants, 400 members, 120 sponsors, community partners etc.
A non-exhaustive list of club tasks roles, including committee, registrations, membership, sponsorship, game day planning, media, first aid/ sports trainers, canteen, goal/ central umpires, tribunal, league meetings, officials, auditing, contracts, record keeping, rubbish collection and disposal, purchasing, gate attendance, laundry, bar duties, liquor licencing, coaches, team managers, maintenance, water carriers, runners, cleaning, junior coordinator, club delegates, treasurer, secretary, clearance secretary, fund raising, social club, merchandise, Working with Children Officer, grant applications, etc.
Sounds exhausting? It doesn’t have to be. If these tasks are shared it significantly relieves volunteer burden and greatly enhances the overall club experience. We all have families, competing priorities, vocations, social lives, value our downtime and seek to optimise a work/ life balance.
You do have the time, you do have the skills, you most certainly have the motivation and a responsibility to support the people that support you and invest in the growth and development of our proud community club. Please ensure you jump onboard in 2023 and do your bit for the BFNC.
Looking forward to catching up with you at the club in 2023.
