About Clairvaux Football Club

Clairvaux welcomes male, female and junior players

History

Clairvaux Football Club formed in 1967 and is widely regarded as a true "community club", with many administrative and coaching roles held by current and past players.

The club operates out of Clairvaux MacKillop College on Klump Road in Upper Mt Gravatt, Brisbane.

We field teams ranging from junior under 6's through to senior men’s and women’s teams competing in the Football Brisbane Capital & City League Competitions. In addition we will also have a ladies team competing in the Football Brisbane Over 30's Legends Competition which commenced in 2016. 

Clairvaux FC also has 3 x mens Over 35 teams competing in the Queensland Masters Competition and it is likely we will add a 4th team in 2017 due to the popularity of this competition.

In 2016 we established our Squirts program designed for 3 - 5 year olds (male and female) and this is provided free of charge and held on Saturday's during every home junior game.

The club also participates in the bi-annual Pan Pacific Masters Games held on the Gold Coast with both our ladies and mens teams consistently reaching the finals and have won silver and bronze medals in the last 3 Games.  

In 2012 Clairvaux FC launched their annual 5 Aside competition and every year this continues to grow with over 300 players (male and female) from all over Brisbane playing last year. In 2017 the competition will be held in November as part of our 50th Anniversary celebrations. 

We embrace and practice a fair play policy and we foster player and coaching development wherever possible. We especially encourage the participation of female junior and senior players at our club and field two female senior teams at the club.

We are extremely proud that a number of our senior and junior players are also qualified referees officiating at local, state and national level giving back to the football community.

In 2017 with the assistance of our major club sponsors -  South City Mazda and Spot Digital Productions, the club will look to establish a scholarship programme that will be used to assist more people to get involved in the game as well as assisting the further development of of players, coaches, managers and administrators.

The club is not only proactive about getting children physically and mentally active, we also encourage good nutrition and in 2017 we will be introducing a healthy eating program where we will provide fresh fruit free of charge to all juniors at every home game.   

Our playing fields continue to undergo further development with the installation of a new drainage system and LED lighting being installed on the top oval in 2016.

Plans are well underway to install shade sails over the spectator area and further development of top oval is also being planned in consultation with the College and it is hoped to have this completed by 2018.

Our junior fields have grown from 3 to 7 fields in the space of 2 years as we continue to grow our junior base and discussions are also being held with the College to make further improvements to these fields.
