Trust your Family, with ours
From the blue corner of the most passionate footballing City in the world (Liverpool of course!) is our Technical Director Colin Williams. Colin leads our Juniors footballing culture and coaching prowess. Read on to find out more about why you should trust your child's footballing and team-sports education with us.
Colin is a current FFA B Licence Soccer Coach, and has experience as a Club Technical Director and Coach in WA from grass roots through to NPL. He's been involved at the club for the past 9 years and is committed to implementing an innovative coaching and development program for our Coaches and Players from 5-18 years of age. This helps the continued growth of modern and quality coaching standards at the club, and nurtures the full potential and talent of our Juniors at all levels.
Colin is passionate about providing a positive, motivational and fun environment for our Juniors. Whether at a recreational or competitive level and encourages each Coach and Player to strive to fulfil their potential - to trust and work hard for their teams.
Colin recently set up SoccerLab Coaching and Development, offering private coaching sessions using new interactive training equipment and methods used in European soccer academies, which simulate game situations. Sessions are designed to work on players ability to rapidly process information, apply rules and strategies and make sound independent decisions on the pitch. Colin takes pleasure in coaching Juniors of all ages and abilities in a fun, encouraging and motivational environment. For testimonials see www.Soccerlab.com.au
Whilst the emphasis at the club at Junior level is very much on fun and development, under Colin’s leadership the Juniors have had some recent great successes as you will see below.

Colin has recently introduced to the Club an interactive online structured platform called SoccerPLAY in conjunction with PREAU Sports in Melbourne. This was fully endorsed by Natalie Harding who invested a lot of time and effort at the end of the 2020 season in helping set this up, and the Club are excited about moving forward and using the platform. As we are one of the largest Community clubs in WA having this platform available to us will greatly assist us in managing and coordinating the Junior programs. We are the only community club in WA to be using this.
SoccerPLAY allows Coaches to access fun and quality age and skill appropriate sessions, and assists the Technical Director in overseeing training throughout all Junior levels to encourage consistency and help drive development. The system allows goals to be set, and tests and records players progression throughout the season providing end of season data to help parents understand their child’s progression and strengths and areas for improvement if required.
