Our approach to football training has been designed and perfected over a decade, into a structured, annual curriculum based program. Ours is a child-centric program that teaches individual skills as well as teamwork to maximize every child's ability to perform better.
The primary focus of Great Goals is to inculcate sporting skills, community values and sportsmanship which always takes the forefront in every game. We thrive on ensuring that they walk off the field with smiles on their faces after every session.

We run Multi-Sport Programs at 7 Schools
Great Goals runs specially curated programmes in schools to help them achieve their goals for the all-round development of their students. These can include in-school or after-school football and basketball classes, developing school football and basketball teams, fitness programmes, and special camps.
International Village School
Muslim Women's Association
In 2013, as mothers to two football-obsessed boys, the founders Priya Gopalen & Sandhya Rajan were unable to find a suitable program for them that was structured, fun, safe and accountable. This inspired the 'mom-preneur' duo to create their own program that would be about more than just playing football – it would help children learn that sportsmanship matters even more than sport. Thus, Great Goals was founded.
From those humble beginnings, Great Goals is now an organised, quality-conscious, 10 year old sports academy who has trained more than 3500 students, is AIFF accredited, has partnered with 7 schools, has elite teams competing in state & national level leagues, provides scholarships & so much more.
