COOLUM Football Club's first and second division players travelled to the Gold Coast last weekend to play pre-season games against the Surfers Paradise Apollo Soccer Club.

The team-bonding event started with a great result as Coolum's reserves team had a resounding 10-0 win against the Surfers Paradise second division team.

Strikers Josh Phelps and Joshua Aubry both scored hat-tricks while Dave Bevan picked up a double and Gavin Dobbs and Nick Skinner scored one goal each.

Head coach Gabor Ganczer said the boys did a great job on an extremely hot Saturday afternoon.

The first division team started without four regular players because of injuries and other duties.

A few individual mistakes cost Coolum two early goals and another one later in the first half.

Scott Unterrheiner scored the premier side's only goal.

Surfers Paradise Apollo Club comes to the Sunshine Coast to play the second leg of the two clubs' pre-season fixtures on Saturday.

The reserve team's kick-off is 3pm and the two premier teams clash is at 5pm at Coolum.

Coolum first, reserve and third division teams will start the competitive season on Tuesday when Coolum hosts the first round of the Johnny Warren Cup.

The Coolum thirds take on Buderim at 6.30pm and Coolum firsts play Noosa seconds at 8.30pm.

The 2012 season fixtures were revealed at last week's Sunshine Coast Football Zone's season launch.

Coolum starts its campaign with three home games:

March 3 Coolum v Kawana

March 10 Coolum v Beegees

March 17 Coolum v Caloundra (Reserves kick of at 5pm, Premiers 7pm).

Meanwhile, Coolum president Justin Gerbic has announced the club will take a new direction this season to "put Coolum on the map".

"Instead of being just a club at the northern end of Coolum, our club is working in with business and residents to forge a new interest in football," Mr Gerbic said.
