About SWQ Thunder
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 Men's squad from 2015 has been bolstered
with some senior recruits in the off season.
Our Board has a clear vision of where we need to be and what the club will look like 20 years from now. The future
is built on a solid foundation, and I would like to acknowledge the contribution and dedication of past Directors,
Committee Members and Volunteers.
We are fortunate to have the long term support of our Sponsors. Ongoing corporate support is critical to enable
the growth of the club, and we would love to hear from your business if you are interested in a strategic business
We will also need continued help and support of our members to achieve these goals. If everyone does a little,
no one does a lot. Our Board of Directors are also volunteers. We are working with you, not for you, on the
success of the club. If you have ideas on how the club can move forward, please feel free to e-mail me at
