The fledgling Brothers Sunshine Coast Rugby Club will take a major step towards securing its long term future in the Region with the opening of its new clubhouse at Stockland Park tomorrow.

 

The Member for Kawana Hon Jarrod Bleijie and the Mayor of the Sunshine Coast Mark Jamieson will both be present to officially open the new facility which includes new change rooms, toilets, kiosk, storeroom, match official and first aid rooms.

 

Brothers Sunshine Coast Junior Rugby Club spokesperson Clayton Williams said the opening of the new facility was a seminal moment for the club. 

 

“We have built some tremendous momentum here on the Sunshine Coast in the space of two years, we have 175 players representing teams from Under 6 to Under 16 and we have some fantastic coaches, committee members and supporters. 

“Over the past few months the players have seen the clubhouse take shape and the excitement has been building as we all know this is really important for our future.  It’s great for everyone to know that we now have access to some of the best facilities on the Sunshine Coast and this will help us attract and retain players to the club,” he said.

 

Mr Williams praised the State Government who contributed nearly $300,000 to the project as well as Quad Park Corporation who contributed the balance to the project.

 

“Participation, sportsmanship and community is a vital part of the Brothers philosophy and both the State Government and Quad Park Corporation should be praised for helping get young people into sport as this goes a long way towards preventing many health and social issues including obesity, diabetes and depression while encouraging inclusion, participation and teamwork. 

 

“We certainly have big plans for Brothers here on the Sunshine Coast, we also get wonderful support from our Brisbane headquarters and we are working hard to build our playing numbers with the possibility of fielding senior teams in the future,” Mr Williams said.
