About Us

Runaway Bay Soccer Club – The Mighty Bayhawks

Runaway Bay Soccer Club is a community based Junior & Senior Soccer Club catering for children from 3 to 18 through to Seniors – both Men and Women.

The club was founded in 1977 with 90 players

In 2017 the Runaway Bay Soccer Club is proud to say its player numbers are over 400 with 35 junior teams and 6 senior teams. The club also has a number of volunteers that help to get the job done each and every week, making it the friendliest place on the Gold Coast to play soccer.

As we are situated on the Gold Coast we are affiliates with the local governing body Football Gold Coast. With their guidance we have the ability to play in competitions each week with team ranging as far north as Ormeau and as far south as Murwillumbah. We play under the rules set down by both Football Australia and FIFA.

Our emphasis at the club

Participation, fun, fair play, motor skill enhancement and the co-operative life skills which children learn when playing a team sport. We value our sporting successes and strive to accept defeats in our competition teams with good grace.  Our approach for teams Under 13 and below is on learning, not winning.  We encourage all parents to follow our lead.

Your Committee is conscious of the need to continue the vision of its founders by providing a low cost, high quality community service and this is reflected in the club’s financial and other policies.

Social activity and facilities for you

We encourage a lot of social activity and have facilities for groups or teams to use our grounds and clubhouse for social events. Presentation Day and the Christmas Party are two annual events for all parents and players to enjoy together. We encourage parents to participate in club activities and can provide the necessary training for you to coach or manage a team.

Traditions are built over time

Now is the time for your child and family to be part of the Bayhawks tradition. The foundations are in place and we invite you to help your club to continue to grow and maintain its place as a valuable community asset.
