Every year we organize international activities. The idea behind this is to create a win-win situation for all parties involved. On the one hand, this is to transfer our knowledge and experience to players and coaches abroad, on the other hand we want to gain experience abroad and get to know other football cultures. Through the years we have entered into a partnership with a number of international parties in Europe, but also intercontinental.
Since 2016 we have been working together with JOGA SC, a soccer organization based in Washington DC in the United States. The result is an annually recurring international tournament in the Amsterdam area. Next to that we organize Talent Goals soccer camps in the Washington DC region, these camps are intended for talented youth footballers between the ages of 8 and 16 years.
Since 2018 we are also active on the other side of the world, in Australia. Here we contributed to coach in the youth academy of new professional club Gold Coast Knights. We have provided ball mastery training sessions for youth from 5 to 15 years and team coaching. In addition, we organized street football activities for local youth in Gold Coast. We also are very active with coaching recruitment for our partners in Australia.
We offer foreign players the opportunity to come overseas for an European football experience. We arrange trials at big clubs in the Netherlands for the most talented players from our partner clubs from the United States and Australia. We offer them to train with the Talent Goals Academy and perhaps get a trial with Dutch top amateurs or professional youth teams, this depends on the level of the player.
We also make it possible for Dutch players to have a shot in the States or in Australia. This could be for a High School team in America or for one of our partner clubs in Australia. If you are keen for a trial like this, it is useful to create a football resume and put some game video’s on YouTube!
We offer Dutch and Belgian coaches the opportunity to coach in USA and Australia. For our American partner we usually provide coaching assignments for short periods up to 3 months in the USA. Sometimes we also offer shorter assignments, for example for 10 days, to coach an American team during a football trip in Europe.
Talent Goals is also been asked by the management of professional club Gold Coast Knights to look for suitable Dutch coaches who could work in their youth academy. Also another Australian club is looking for new coaches. In addition to club training, this club also provides football sessions in the form of after school programs.
