I'm a Coach

Coaches are a vital part of the success of the club. Here's what you need to know:

Field locations
Most divisions play at home and away throughout the season.
  • Playing at home? Click here to see the Mitchie field map.
  • Playing away? Click here to find details about the team and fields at which you’re playing. 

Fixtures and results
Need to know when you’re playing? Want to see where your team is on the ladder? 
  • Football Brisbane comp results can be found here.
  • Football Queensland comp results can be found here.
  • Interested in all Mitchie teams? A results round up can be found here during the season. Note: this round up is taken from SportsTG and as such, might not have all results (results won’t appear if team managers haven’t entered them into the system). 

SportsTG Login (entering results)
Coaches and Managers are responsible for entering match results into the SportsTG system. This must be done by 9am Monday following a game. Click here to access the SportsTG system. 
Note: if you didn’t Coach last season, login details will be provided by the Club at the start of the season. 

Blue card application
The blue card system is a key prevention and monitoring system of people working with children and young people in Queensland.  It aims to minimise the risks of harm to children and young people by contributing to the creation of safe and supportive environments, and is founded on the principle that all children have a fundamental right to be protected from harm.

Volunteers need a blue card if their work or practical placement in sport and active recreation includes, or is likely to include, providing services that are directed mainly towards children, or conducting activities that mainly involve children, unless an exemption applies.

At Mitchie, we require all Coaches and Managers to hold a Blue Card – even if they’re coaching/managing senior teams. 


Code of Behaviour
All Senior and Junior Players, Spectators, Coaches, Managers and Parents are required to follow the Club’s Code of Behaviour. For Coaches, this means you should: 
  • GIVE ALL JUNIOR PLAYERS EQUAL PLAYING TIME (Note – Coaches of teams in higher ranked and competitive divisional teams will have greater discretion regarding playing time). 
  • Be reasonable in your demands on young player's time, energy and enthusiasm.
  • Teach your players to follow the rules.
  • Remember that children participate for pleasure and that winning is only part of the fun.
  • Ensure that equipment and facilities meet safety standards and are appropriate to the age and ability of the players.
  • Develop team respect for the ability of opponents and for the judgement of officials and opposing coaches.
  • Follow the advice of a physician when determining when an injured player is ready to recommence training or competition.
  • Keep up to date with the latest coaching practices and the principles of growth and development of children.
  • Wherever possible, group players to ensure that everyone has a reasonable chance of success.
  • Be sure that the language you use, your physical contact and relationships with the team members are appropriate at all times.
  • Encourage the children to comply with disciplinary expectations appropriate to their age and make them aware that bullying or other inappropriate behaviour will not be tolerated at any time.
