The Albany Creek GPS Brumbies Rugby Club was established in 1996 when the GPS Rugby Union Club created a new 'satellite' junior rugby union club at Albany Creek. The club has grown significantly since it started with a handful of under 6's and under 7's players. Our club now provides playing opportunities for approximately 400 of the area's young. We field teams in all age groups from U6 to U17, with most age groups sporting multiple teams. Today's achievements will be tomorrow's history.
Our approach is to develop the players as individuals and as a group. It is also to make sure that everybody who trains regularly and supports their team, is given the opportunity to participate as much as possible.
We will endeavour to develop the teams to win matches by inspiring individuals and the teams to aim high and to succeed. The players will also be given the opportunity to polish their leadership skills by motivating, supporting and encouraging each other to play and build a team within the true spirit of the game.
Players who aspire to representative selection will need to focus on individual skill development as well as adopt a group focus.
All players are encouraged to maintain a balance between school and study, family and rugby. This attitude must be present at all times and school results should be maintained throughout the season.
The club is situated at South Pine Sports Complex, Cribb Rd, BRENDALE (UBD Map 108 Ref F11). Follow the signs off Old Northern Road.
There is one official training session per week on Friday nights from 6.00pm. All players are expected to attend these sessions and to arrive on time. Players who are unable to attend training or be on the field by 6.00pm, are required to notify the coach or team manager prior to this training session. This will allow coaching staff to make any adjustments to the training and game plans.
