Great Goals is a child-centric sports academy that offers football and basketball coaching. It is a place where skill and fun come together to equip children with necessary skills that’ll inspire them to reach greater goals in their lives. Our programs focus on individual skills & teamwork to maximize every child’s ability to perform better. Our highly-trained and accredited coaches support every step of a child’s development throughout their program! The primary focus of Great Goals is to inculcate sporting skills, community values and sportsmanship which always takes the forefront in every game while making sure that they walk off the field with smiles on their faces after every session.
Since we founded Great Goals, we’ve been referred to as: ‘soccer moms’, ‘mom-trepreneurs’, ‘football housewives’, and one of the questions that are tossed our way most often is ”how or why we started Great Goals.”
In 2013, as mothers of two football-obsessed boys, finding a suitable program that was structured, accountable, fun, and safe was near to impossible. This pushed us to create our program that would be about more than just playing football – it would help children understand that sport is not merely a game but a life skill. And thus, Great Goals came into existence.
We’ve learned and grown since those beginnings and are now a professionally run, quality-conscious sports academy with players varying from ages 4-16. We’ve also become more diverse now, adding basketball for the children who wanted an alternate team sport and a beginner U4 class for very young children to learn the ABCs of sport – agility, balance, and coordination.
Our vision is to Engage, Inspire And Empower Young Boys And Girls Through Sport.
We believe sports to be a metaphor for life. Great Goals is a sports academy that teaches young boys and girls important life values as they develop their sport skill while training with us. Children learn problem-solving, teamwork, leadership, respect, and resilience in addition to technical skills. These principles form the foundation of the Great Goals programme and will continue to be our main emphasis moving forward.
Our mission is to develop players who are competitive, compassionate, disciplined, adaptable, driven, and responsible.
How We Engage
Sport can transform lives. At Great Goals, we train boys and girls to connect with themselves and those around them and assimilate the multiple benefits that emerge from playing a team sport. This imprint is very powerful when sport becomes part of their growing years. The life skills that sport manifests in boys and girls, help shape their personalities. We facilitate this growth through structured programs, relevant platforms, partnerships and networks.
How We Inspire
We aim to ignite that spark in young boys and girls and enable them to become the best version of themselves. This aim lies at the core of everything we do. Our sports programs are player-centric and provide a strong foundation with a positive environment to develop both technical and non-technical skills. We align ourselves with current global thinking and best practices in sport and education to deliver both meaningful and inspiring sports education to our players.
How We Empower
We allow players to grow at their own pace and evolve holistically. We enable players to reach their highest potential by offering rigorous training and structured opportunities. By developing their competitive spirit, teamwork and leadership skills, we help children aspire to great goals in life through sports.
