Roar girls to kick off Wolter Park coaching clinics


Aspiring young players and women’s football fans will have the chance to watch and meet Brisbane Roar W-League players when they train at Moreton Bay United FC’s Wolter Park later this month.

Roar W-League coach Belinda Wilson will train the Roar W-League squad there on Friday, 25 September, from 7am to 9am.
Wilson will also participate in three specialised girls clinics at the Jets’ Bridgeman Downs ground.

The clinics are on Friday, 25 September; Saturday, 26 September; and Sunday, 27 September. They run from 9am to noon on each day.

The clinics, for girls aged under 7 to under 18, are free and limited to 100 players.

The Roar W-League girls will pose for photographs and sign autographs after their training session prior to the first coaching clinic.

Brisbane Roar is one of the most successful clubs in the Westfield W-League since its formation in 2008.

The Roar girls were Premiers and Champions in the inaugural season, were Champions again in 2010-11 and won the Premiership a second time in 2012-13. They were runners-up for the two titles a combined five times.

This year, the Roar provided seven players to the Westfield Matildas squad that reached the quarter-finals at the FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada and four players to the Westfield Young Matildas who contested the AFC Under-19 Championships in China.

Wilson said the Roar training session and the clinics would be an ideal opportunity for aspiring footballers of all ages to learn more about the game.

“The success of the Roar W-League program has come through a lot of hard work and commitment by our players,” Wilson said.

“Before that they were players at their local clubs so at this level is where it all starts.

“These clinics will provide specialised and expert coaching that could well be the first step in launching the career of our next generation of W-League and Matildas stars.”
