Foxtel and Socceroos star Tim Cahill are expanding their football Academy program in Australian schools.
Foxtel head coaches will lead free coaching clinics designed to inspire the next generation of Australian footballers.
Yesterday at Ascot Vale Primary School, Cahill said, “For me, it is all about inspiring the next generation of Australian footballers and giving them the opportunity to experience the game with the best coaches in the business. I am thrilled to be extending my relationship with Foxtel and giving more kids a chance to follow their dreams.”
In 2013, Foxtel and Tim Cahill joined forces to create the Foxtel Tim Cahill Academy – a free football program to inspire the next generation of Australian footballers through exclusive coaching clinics. So far, Foxtel and Tim have provided the experience to over 4,000 boys and girls across Australia.
This year, the Academy is expanding, so even more children can have a shot at their football dream.
Kicking off with Victoria, our Foxtel head coaches will be working with local schools to provide young Australians with the Foxtel Tim Cahill Academy experience.
The new program is open to all schools, regardless of age or ability. Each coaching session includes movement and coordination drills to improve a child’s ability to run, jump and pass, along with an element of fun competition to encourage communication and teamwork. Plus, each school receives a premium Foxtel football equipment pack.
