About the Gold Coast Football Academy
Welcome to the Gold Coast Football Academy website where developing each player in all areas of the Football Quadrant of Tactical, Technical, Physical and Psychological components is our goal. We understand what is required to excel at the higher levels of the game and are mindful of the changing developmental needs of players through all ages and both sexes.
GCFA v Manchester United
The objectives of the Gold Coast Football Academy are simply to ultimately improve the footballing abilities of those players who wish to play and enjoy the game at a higher level than they are currently experiencing. We are a progressive, professional footballing academy that utilises our innovative training concepts. Bringing out the best in players is important to us as is nurturing well being. We work with the ball - a lot - so that players can have the opportunity to instil in their very fabric, more confidence surrounding their skills, learning and understanding of what the game is about. And we do this in a disciplined but enjoyable learning environment.
GCFA v EPL sides Liverpool & Newcastle United
Our football coaching includes specialised technical sessions with the ball, outfield and goalkeeping sessions, strength and conditioning training, and psychological and nutritional advice. We also employ our Yoga Fusion program for ‘stretching’ players physically and mentally. And we believe our specialised and unique cognitive footballing drills, play a major part in developing good footballers. The tactical side of the game is not ignored either. We identify for players, individual and positional roles and responsibilities, as well as team and squad components in different scenarios.

These facilities allows us to develop athletes as well as excellent footballers, and combined with our Cognitive Football program and the 3D benefits of CAC’s Imaginarium and other resources, it is second to none.
