The Club is delighted to be partnered with one of the most prestigious schools in Australia, St Joseph’s Nudgee College which is internationally renowned for its outstanding performances in Football, Cricket, Rugby, Rowing, Swimming and Basketball.
In April 2023, the Club's extended partnership will see the Global Football Development team work alongside Nudgee College coaches, delivering interactive and informative coach education workshops, whilst hosting visits throughout the season to our state-of-the-art Hotspur Way training facility in North London for selected coaching staff and players.
In addition, the wider football community in Brisbane will benefit from the presence of our coaches, who will regularly host free coaching clinics to give young local people the opportunity to learn and develop their skills.
Since the partnership began in 2020, the Club’s Global Football Development team has delivered 850 hours of player and coach development training, engaged with 700 young players on the school football programme, hosted 12 informative and interactive workshops and engaged with a further 250 players at weekly local grassroots sessions.
