Nope, we're not kidding. Great Goals, a Chennai-based sports programme is all things awesome. Started in 2013 by two mothers keen on supporting their own children’s interest in football, Great Goals offers a chance for passionate but really young children to seriously further their interest in sports. Priya Gopalen and Sandhya Rajan, both put together this programme offering structured football and basketball training by national-level coaches to children aged 4-16!Their MultiSport course is the one that we are really amazed by. By creating fun games that focus on skills like agility, balance and coordination, this course helps 3 to 4-year-olds (the youngest of the lot here) challenge themselves and grow as players. The football format here is just as impressive and is spread across six age groups ranging from U-5 to U-16. Great Goals even has a 'Just For Girls' football program. Their Basketball Program Is also quite popular and caters to 7-16-year-olds.
Great Goals also hosts one of the biggest football tournaments in the city, where aspiring footballers can participate as part of a league. It even conducts in-house leagues every season and a city-wide football league in the U-9, U-11 and U-13 age categories. The All-India Football Federation backs this league. You can find these programs at multiple places like Adyar, Kilpauk, Nungambakkam, Kotturpuram and more.
