THE CORINDI Red Rock Breakers faced a dilemma heading into their latest season.
With their grounds out of action due to the deluge of wet weather, the club faced a season of having to schedule games elsewhere.
But it was while watching their juniors train that Breakers secretary Laura Vines came up with the idea of a new regular playing ground.
“I saw our juniors training at Red Rock, and I thought if they were training there, then why couldn’t they play there,” she said.
So the idea was born, and the Breakers eight non-competitive junior teams have been playing their games at Tom Richards Memorial Park in Red Rock.
The Breakers secretary said the move to Red Rock honoured a town which had always been a part of the club’s name.
“We had never played there before, and Red Rock has always been part of our name so it’s nice to embrace that,” she said.
“It’s nice that those residents can just walk out their doors and watch, and we have quite a few players from Red Rock who now walk out to the picturesque Red Rock location.
“Thanks to Reflections Holiday Park Red Rock for allowing us to use the grassed area.”
Vines said there had been a great response from the Red Rock community seeing the Breakers teams play there for the first time.
“The reaction has been really good, and our volunteer committee members have organised a BBQ, and we’ve had other volunteers from the community and even Woolgoolga United FC committee members lend a hand setting up and selling goods.
“Woolgoolga FC lent us their six-a-side goals, and the Red Rock community has been really supportive.
“And I’d love to continue playing there after this season.”
