Spartans – Colts Team

Our Colts team have shown continuous success in its short history, setting the standard for Junior football in Queensland reaching the playoffs 7 out of the last 8 years, reaching the Sun Bowl 4 times, winning on two of those occasions. The 9 a side format for boys and girls aged 14-18 is a fast paced open format which allows our talented athletes to thrive.

Since 2009 coaches Luke Chapman and Matthew Noonan have manned the head coaching position, both gaining massive success. After Coach Noonan retired from club football at the end of the 2016, Brendan Phillips has been named the new Head Coach for the 2017 Colt’s Team.

Every year the Sunshine Coast Spartans produce talent to every level including state and national levels. Most recently, we have had former and current Spartans players be offered scholarship opportunities to play high school and college level football in America.
