Setting Standards

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.

Our Journey

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.

We believe in #sportsforall

We want every child who wants to be a part of Great Goals to have access. We want to break economic barriers and bridge gender gaps so that all children who love sports can get quality sports education regardless of their economic background or gender. We hope to achieve this at scale via Great Goals Trust, the non-profit arm of Great Goals that seeks to give back to sports and society.
