We are excited to announce the appointment of our new Director of Skills Development, Carl Forbes.


Carl will be heading up our brand new LionHeart Academy which will focus on talent identification and the development of our players towards elite pathways. These pathways will include our junior representative teams and our elite senior programs such as QSL and NBL1. Players will also have the opportunity to pursue International pathways through high school and college in the USA.
Carl has joined us at RedCity Roar this year after spending the last 10 years assisting young athletes across SEQ in developing their skills on and off the court. He has assisted 100’s of young players in developing their game and pursuing college scholarships in the USA. He is excited to join our association and we are looking forward to seeing the impact he can have on our players and our association.
As a talent identification and development program, the LionHeart Academy will look to provide opportunity to our most promising players who display the desire and potential to excel. The program will run in the early mornings with a key focus on developing our culture and our player’s skills, in line with our style of play documents and our vision for the future as an association.
The selection process for players for our first intake will start with our U12 & U14 representative trial this weekend.
The program will kick off in February 2021 on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
Please join us in welcoming Carl to the Roar family!
