Each season, we conduct an in-house league. This is open to all Great Goals players, and usually is held in the last few weeks of the season. The league is an opportunity for players to show their growth as leaders, team players, and sportspeople. At the end of every league, awards are distributed to the teams, and individual talent and sportsmanship is recognized.
Every year, we host the Great Goals Annual Football Tournament, a city-wide academy tournament that showcases Chennai’s best footballing talent. The tournament runs for a single day, and is comprised of a league stage and a knockout stage. All age-eligible Great Goals players can participate in this tournament.
An important aspect of the Great Goals program is the emphasis on community. We are committed to our community, and we believe that it is essential to Great Goals. We actively strive to engage the parents, family, and friends of our players in our program. Every term, we host a “Bring a Buddy” day, in which all players bring a friend to a session. We also host a “Family Play Day”, in which parents and children play together.
AIFF Baby Leagues
In addition to our football tournament, we also hold a city-wide league in the U-9, U-11 and U-13 age categories. These leagues, backed by the AIFF, provide a platform for talented players to show their abilities. The league teams are from schools, and each team plays seven matches. These leagues are designed to showcase our city’s exceptional football talent.
