WHO WE ARE
A Sports Program Where Skills Meet Fun
Great Goals was created to be a sports program where every child enjoys himself or herself, while demonstrably getting better at the game. The atmosphere is child-friendly and at the same time challenging and skill focused.
Great Goals runs basketball, football and multi-sport programs that teach game skills, team playing and sportsmanship to over 350 children. Founded in 2013, by Priya Gopalen and Sandhya Rajan, the program aims to bring together best practices in sport and education to build a program that is high-quality, fun, safe and professionally run.
The Football and Discover Sport program is coached by TurnPro headed by Bhaskar K. We maintain high coach-student ratios. Our coaches are young, energetic and passionate about football and are also active players, playing for the many clubs in the Chennai league.
The Basketball program is headed by V Ceciline Michael Vino, a FIBA certified international referee. He is supported by C Mohanraj and Dhanalakshmi. The coaches are all current players, who have played at the State and District level.
Great Goals also offers school-based sports programs.
We work closely with our coaches and staff to ensure age-appropriate curriculum, communication and safety standards.

So Fun No!
We love Great Goals not just because our coaches are so good, but because they are so much fun!
Great Goals is now an integral part of our weekly schedule. Through Priya & Sandhya's vision, thought and effort, Great Goals continues to transform not only the footballing abilities of the kids, but also their core life skills and values.
Great Goals helped me really enjoy Soccer and has taught me what Soccer is all about. I look forward to the Great Goals classes every week more than anything else. All I want is Great Goals class everyday .
Great Goals has been a fantastic training ground for both my children. Sandhya, Priya and the entire team balance running Great Goals extremely professionally while at the same time giving the children opportunities to better their game, cultivate friendships and to just be kids who enjoy the 'beautiful game'. The emphasis on developing sportsmen rather than players is why Great Goals works for us.
