The Touring Team Tradition

Georges River Football Club has built up a fantastic tradition (since 1971) with the Bardon Latrobe Junior Soccer Club with what is affectionately known as the U13 Touring Team.

Bardon Latrobe is a member club of the Brisbane North & Districts Junior Soccer Association.

Each year during the July school holidays Bardon Latrobe U12’s travel to Sydney to play the Georges River U12’s and the Georges River U13’s travel north to play the Bardon Latrobe U13’s.

A fun packed tour of sight seeing of each city jammed between 3 nights of football makes this a must do event for our junior players.

The U13 parents get heavily involved in the fund raising effort to send the team north, and at the end of it, the memories the players have of their tour makes it all worthwhile.

The tour provides a great opportunity to experience sport and life at a level many youngsters don’t get a chance at.

When the Bardon Latrobe U12’s play at Oyster Bay Oval many of our players, Coaches and Managers watch and reminisce with fond memories of the time they did their “tour of duty”.
