Getting one project over the line can be difficult for any local sporting club. In this case, getting three major projects was no issue for Robina City Soccer Club.
With the addition of a new deck, two changing rooms and a third fully flood lit field, the club has gone leaps and bounds in the last 12 months to improve on their exisiting facility at Robina Common.
The new deck and roof were installed primarily with State Government funding on the existing clubhouse leading out towards the main field. The club built two new female friendly changing rooms and enclosed store room with State government funding as well as the clubs own contribution also. However the biggest improvement for the club has come in the third lit field.
The clubs number one supporter, Cr Hermann Vorster secured significant funding for the club to light their northern fields, CCTV cameras and carpark lighting for the Robina Common precinct. The addition of these security measures will significantly increase the safety and monitoring of the car park, clubhouse and children’s playground.
In addition to these benefits, new vegetation for the Common has also been provided. The car park, playground and vegetation benefits not only the club but also its neighbours, the Robina Braves Baseball Club and the local community.
Vice President Craig Marriott had nothing but praise for those involved as well as the benefits the enhancements will make for the club.
“We have an extremely hard working committee who put in endless hours of their own to make Robina City Soccer Club the most successful club it is today. None of this would have been possible without the support of all levels of government and we are extremely lucky to have such good facilities at Robina Common.”
With three fully flood lit fields and seven mini-roos training fields with lighting, it will allow the club to expand even further and increase the training space as they push towards the 700 player mark. By continuing their growth and desire to improve their facilities, Robina City Soccer Club will ensure they remain a powerhouse club on the Gold Coast for many years to come!
