SWQ Thunder FC Media
At South West Queensland Thunder Football Club, our mission is to provide a quality football education that enables
each player to maximise their potential and underpin on field performance through continuous improvement.
As a club, we continue to produce players who continue their football journey through selection in State teams,
the National Training Centre, opportunities overseas with NSR Scholarships, and trials with various professional
clubs in the Hyundai A-League, Europe and elsewhere. Of interest, in a 2015 Senior Mens fixture, there were
2 players in the squad for our opposition who came through the South West Queensland football pathway.
A number of clubs in the National Premier Leagues competition have been in existence for over 50 years. It will
take time to develop from a junior to a senior club, but given the talent coming through the ranks, I have
no doubt that SWQ Thunder FC will become a thorn in the side of our more fancied opposition in years to come.
SWQ Thunder FC is one of only two clubs in the National Premier Leagues playing in Queensland to field a full
compliment of teams, from the Skills Acquisition Program through to Seniors. This is a significant achievement.
Our juniors continue to develop technically as our coaches embrace the FFA National Curriculum, and our senior
footballers continue to punch well above their weight. The young Senior Mens squad from 2015 has been bolstered
with some senior recruits in the off season.
