“The beauty of our relationship is we are a genuine grassroots NPL feeder club set up.”
The Gold Coast Knights partnership with junior club Magic United TFA for the upcoming NPL season in 2019 and beyond will focus heavily on providing a pathway from junior to senior divisions within football on the Gold Coast.
Magic United TFA is committed to developing players that will continuously grow and challenge themselves in the quest to become the best their talents allow. The main aim is to provide a development system that looks to inspire and equip players with skill, strength, and competence that will guide players to long-term success in football. Overall, from grassroots football, the view is to take that to a new level with a common goal in raising future football leaders who will change the game.
The Total Football Academy was established in April 2003 by former premier league player Adem Poric and has become the leading provider of junior soccer development programs for school-aged children in Southern Queensland and Central Queensland.
TFA specialises in soccer coaching programs for children aged 4 to 18 years of age, and currently works with more than 100 schools in Queensland. TFA programs are designed to enhance both the skills and performance of young soccer players, but also provide children of all ages and ability levels with a fun and safe environment to learn and play. TFA prides itself on providing only the highest level of coaching and aims to develop great young people, as well as great players. Last year, TFA coached more than 3000 children in the Gold Coast, Brisbane, and Northern New South Wales schools.
TFA is proud of its ongoing role in the development of young soccer players in its local community and looks forward to building a long-lasting relationship with schools and clubs in the soccer community for many years to come.
