The CHOOSE difference

Our difference is in our people. Each member of our team is incredibly skilled-both on and off the pitch-and we pride ourselves in keeping our love of football alive through the development of the next generation.

Gary

Gary specialises in the physical preparation of footballers and leads the implementation of our Off-Pitch program as well as the Choose Football Performance gym.

His major interest is in the physical development of youth footballers, and has worked as Head S&C Coach at schools, clubs and youth academies.

He has also worked and consulted with players preparing for the Olympic trials, English Football League and Australian A-League as well as clubs in the USA PDL and NPL clubs.

Gary has coached across three continents and has been a speaker at several global conferences on topics related to youth athlete development.

Paul

Paul’s practical experience and knowledge of Sydney football is unrivalled. Not only did he endure a successful playing career in the MWFA league but he has spent over twenty years coaching youth, mens and woman’s teams. 

He’s Head coach of Harbord FC, longest serving staff member here at Choose Football and is so passionate about spreading his love of the game to others, he dedicates most of his life to helping the local football community on and off the pitch.

It’s no surprise that he was awarded the MWFA Meritorious Award for Services to Football and named Coach of the Year three times!

Chaz

Chaz has the experience of knowing exactly what it takes to make it as a professional in the game, having played with Dundee United in the U19’s before making his pro debut at just aged sixteen for Scottish side Partick Thistle. 

Hampered by injuries, he had some time off before moving to the USA to play college soccer.

As well as working full time with youth players at Choose Football he is a football co-ordinator for Scots College and has previously worked as Asst. Coach at Bankstown Berries first grade.

Combining his experience with a laid back and upbeat personality Chaz is a coach that always guarantees sessions that have high standards and that players enjoy.

Dan

Starting as a P.E teacher in the UK, before heading to the USA to coach MLS academy players at Sporting Kansas City and Manchester Utd Soccer Schools, Dan has settled here in Sydney.

He has been working full time as a youth coach for ten years and has helped well over 1000 players in NPL, academy and schools ranging from kindie to teenager.

Dans ability to teach kids technical, movement and social skills at all ages in a patient and entertaining way has proven to be a huge asset to our team.
