Players trial in October and register with Western Pride FC for a 40 week program each year. 

Expressions of Interest for the 2020 season will commence in August 2019. 

Western Pride FC have Talent Identification Evenings throughout the season. This information will be advertised on this page.


The focus is to build on players’ existing functional game skills and reach their potential best by increasing their game knowledge and decision making. Our footballer’s development is supported by three training sessions per week and a competitive match at the weekend. All coaches hold an advanced AFC licence and supported by a full-time Technical Director and other staff members (assistant coach, goalkeeper coach, strength conditioning coach, team manager, physiotherapist). The program is complemented with theory classes on injury prevention, nutrition, sport psychology and international guest coaches presentation. 

Please consider the following statements when you make a decision about your child’s footballing future and trials.

  • Western Pride Football Club is a representative club only dedicated to providing elite player development with an individual focus.
  • Western Pride remains true to its original mission to provide a pathway for young players to state and national representative teams and A-League Youth squads.
  • Western Pride is the only NPL club which puts youth player development ahead of the first team’s trophy cabinet. We believe any future first-team success should be predominantly based on players developed by our youth system.
  • Our mid-term vision is to earn a position in the highest professional league in Australia with sport and political decision makers having already identifying Ipswich and Brisbane’s Western Corridor as a genuine football hub and expansion area.
  • We enjoy great support of the Ipswich City Council along with local businesses to enable us to keep our fees reasonable while providing four contacts per week to our athletes over 40 weeks.
  • We are very keen to work with our community clubs and let them host their own SYL or divisional level teams. Our elite NPL players enjoy plenty of field space and a quality training and playing surface due to the limited number of teams using our excellent facilities at Briggs Road, Flinders View and Tivoli Sporting Complex at Tivoli throughout the year.

We hope you join us on this journey with Pride!
