The Club is proud to have played a part in the development of a number of female players now playing in the Westfield W-League or professionally overseas including; Natalie Tathem, Kaitlyn Torpey and Allira Toby.

Olympic would like to thank the Football Queensland board and technical department for entrusting Olympic to deliver a quality female player development program.
