Brisbane Roar have teamed up with new FQPL team Souths United to provide better player development opportunities for players in the South Brisbane region. Souths United are a club with a strong tradition in local football and in recent years a heavy emphasis on the development of young female footballers. The club possess some of the best local club facilities in Brisbane if not Queensland, and Brisbane Roar are delighted to be working with Souths United to help develop a strong pathway into our Academy, A-League and W-League teams of the future.
Brisbane Roar and Souths United shall work to develop an Academy Preparation Centre for young boys and girls between the ages of 5-11 years old. This program will be delivered by Souths United technical coaching staff under the guidance and mentoring of Brisbane Roar’s full-time youth development coaches. The implementation of the APC will provide young children the opportunity to be seen on a week-to-week basis by Brisbane Roar’s coaching team in the hope of progressing into the Academy at U13. All APC teams will have the opportunity to play fixtures in the Brisbane Roar environment in addition to their regular club games program.
