Beaudesert Soccer Club ends season with a carnival at Selwyn Park

BEAUDESERT Soccer Club hosted a junior carnival on Saturday to celebrate another season.

Club patron Chrissie Brown said the end-of-year carnival was an annual tradition.

"We do it at the end of every season," she said.

"Everyone gets to play three games and they also get a sausage sizzle and a popper.

"It's a fun way to end the season and hopefully capture the children's enthusiasm for next season, which starts in April."

Ms Brown said Beaudesert was a great venue to host the carnival, which this year welcomed players from 54 clubs in the Queensland Christian Soccer Association's south-east zone.

"We have plenty of space to hold four games at the same time," she said.

"Also it's great not to have to travel anywhere today."

Club president Keiron Walsh said membership at the soccer club had doubled in the past five years, with 300 members signing on for this season, with 23 coaches volunteering their time to the club.

"The biggest influx has been girl members and we now have three all-girl teams," he said.

"Also this year for the first time we started a tiny tots program for kids aged 3 to 5 years.

"One of our new parents runs that programme for us."

Mr Walsh said the club would be running an off-season 6 a-side competition to start in the first week of the fourth school term.

"It will start on the Wednesday of week one for members aged 7-years and up," he said.

"We will provide more information on the club's facebook page."
