Starcevich supports development of Fraser Coast facilities

CRAIG Starcevich threw his support behind any move to increase the quality and quantity of facilities on the Fraser Coast.

Starcevich said he supported plans for the divisive sports precinct based on the fact it provided another area to play Aussie Rules, it could home more teams and helps future development.

"If we open these opportunities for girls to play more sport then all of these other things - coaching, infrastructure - all has to follow," he said.

"All of our big regions have the right to have something of that quality.

"I only know from our numbers but we've had good growth every year and that's based on comps six weeks or longer, and a lot of those come from schools," he said.

"Our next step is to grow club numbers, then you need more facilities.

"We're all looking for extra facilities to house new teams and competitions - the demand is there the whole time."
