Football Pro Lab

All great players start their journey locally.



Pro Lab's Mission

In 2023 SRFC is excited to establish the Samford Rangers Football Pro Lab. (the Pro Lab). The Pro-Lab centres it's programme around the premise that "Tactical effectiveness requires technical proficiency".  It will provide player centred development opportunities for Samford Rangers youth (boys and girls aged 6-18 yrs), to nurture their passion for the game and help empower them to be the best player they can be.

Layered opportunities for accelerated, individual player development are created in collaboration with the Pro Lab's dedicated team of locally based and well qualified staff.  The Pro Lab team's expertise includes Advanced, accredited football coaches including former Matilda Pam Bignold and James Corner SRFC Technical Director,  Junior Academy coaches, Master coaches in Exercise Sports Science and Athletic Development, Contemporary Sport Psychology and utilises cutting edge sport analysis and advancement technology currently rolling out across Europe. Progression through the program will be based on milestone delivery and achievement.

Samford Rangers is now competing in the advanced leagues of the Football Australia Pyramid, providing more pathways for our young aspiring footballers to realise their dreams as a player at Queensland representative level, or as an U17 Joey/ Junior Matilda.
