Capalaba FC Name Under 16 QPL Head Coach...Daniel Baker

Capalaba Football Club has announced Daniel Baker as the club's Under 16 Football Queensland Premier League Coach for the 2018 season.  Dan has an extensive background in youth development and this experience is the key factor for his appointment for this age group.

This age group is the last season these players can experience a truly development experience. As they transition into the Under 18s the following year the games become a lot more serious and there is more emphasis on winning. In the 16 age group we need to make sure they have learnt all the fundamentals to prepare them properly so they are more comfortable as footballers moving forward.
