Even throughout their busy start to the Hyundai A-League season, Brisbane Roar-s community involvement has remained sky high, with over 21,000 children participating in the club-s Roar Active Program in the past two school terms.

Variety was not lacking for the youngsters involved, with the children taking part in after school programs, development squads, curriculum time coaching and Rapid Fire fields, as well as through community initiatives such as radio road shows and holiday clinics.

The Roar Active Program finished the recent school term with a bang, with Brisbane Roar holding holiday clinics on the north, central and south sides of Brisbane, as well as visiting the regional football fans in Toowoomba.

Young supporters were also welcome audiences at Brisbane Roar training sessions throughout the September school holidays, with North Pine FC representative players and Cerebral Palsy footballers taking time out to come down to Ballymore Stadium.

A special mention must also go to the Townsville U13 and U14 teams competing at the Gold Coast Champions Youth Cup. After travelling down from North Queensland, the teams journeyed to Brisbane meet their Roar heroes, gaining some valuable training tips in the process.
