Football

Visit www.gpsqld.org.au for updates about the latest fixtures and results.



The GPS Football competition runs from Years 5 to 12, playing in Term 2. The School caters for boys of all levels of ability, allowing dedicated footballers to train at a high level for multiple terms. Training occurs onsite before and after school.
 
The School holds a day camp on campus during the Easter school holidays open to all boys, and we also take part in regular tours to the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra.
 
All the School’s facilities for football are onsite; we have five full size fields and two modified fields for Years 5 and 6.

History

Football was introduced in 1972. The School entered four teams in the Junior Brisbane Soccer Association competition of that year – an Under 18 Open team, and a team in the under divisions. Football has grown in popularity and in 1991 it became a GPS sport.
 
Churchie has a number of Old Boys who have played for Australia at senior international level including Jonathan McKain, Nathan Coe, Tony Brennan and Steve Hogg.
