Cairns City Lions – 2017 Seniors – A Word from the Coach

“Welcome to season 2018!!”

Well 2017 has come to a close and we now look to 2018.2017recruit

2018 promises to be an exciting year for our senior teams, as we continue building our sides with new players, as well as continuing to blood our up and coming Junior Colts, as they show their skills and talents to be worthy of top tier footy in Cairns.


Preseason Training will start on Thursday 12th January  at 5:45pm followed by a welcome BBQ

We are spreading a wide net in our recruiting efforts to build a stronger core of key players to support our existing and loyal “band of brothers”, the players who have carried us on the journey to this point.

We are supporting and fostering our Lions Colts to give them a pathway to senior football and encouraging our Reserves to step up that extra peg to challenge for Senior spots.

We have a vision, which it is believed will help shape the future of our Club for many years to come, and lead to more on-field success.

As the playing roster improves with a great mixture of youth and maturity, and with the support of a dedicated group of coaches, trainers, officials and supporters, some exciting times are ahead and we are all looking forward 2017

If you are interested in coming down for a look both senior teams train will be training Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:45pm sharp at Holloways Beach Sporting Club, 84 Wisteria St, Holloways Beach. Come down and check out the action!
