Get Thunderstruck at footy club's rego days

Jimboomba Thunder is gearing up for a huge season in 2020, and the club is looking for talented kids to be part of its impressive rise.

Interested players are invited to two sign-on days, in what will be a historic year for the Thunder.

Players can sign on the dotted line at the club's South Street headquarters on February 1. Another day is set down for February 8.

There will be free sausage sizzles on both days, which get underway at 8am. They run until 12pm.

Club president Trent Barnes urged interested players and parents to get down to the days.

"We have these days so people can get associated with our system," he said.

"It's an opportunity for newer people to the area to come down and meet the people who will be looking after their kids."

The club will field sides in the under 13, 14, 15, 16 and 18 Rugby League Gold Coast competition.

There will also be teams in the non-competitive under sixes, 11 and 12.

Thunder will field a team in the under 12, 14, 16 and 18 girls competitions, along with combined teams in the 11s and sixes.

Barnes was excited about getting involved in girls footy.

:"It's gone absolutely nuts, the increase in the last few years," he said.

"Just putting it on TV has opened up the eyes of a lot of girls, and what they are capable of.

"I have always been a supporter of girls football."

He said the under 12s was an age where players wanted to make the change from combined teams to girls footy.

"The 12s is an age where their bodies are just starting to change," he said.

"A lot of the girls don't want to play with the boys."

The club is going from strength to strength on the field, with more and more players signing up every year.

"The increases over the last year or two have been quite significant," Barnes said.

"Last year we had something like 67 extra registrations."

The club had 415 registered players last year, up from 230 just four years ago."

Jimbooma Thunder will host three registration days for players to sign up for the club.

The club has produced plenty of representative talent, Barnes said.

There will be about seven or eight home fixtures for Jimboomba players this year.

Last year, the club hosted the competition's major semi finals.

Hosting rights will come around again in 2021.

"It's a really exciting time," Barnes said.

"We have 12 months to build for next year, until we host them again."

Thunder have a season launch planned for March, along with another sign-on day.

Details are yet to be confirmed.
