IF you're an Aussie kid with football ambitions then now is the time to score a call-up to the Foxtel All-Stars Tim Cahill Academy - but you better get your boots on!
Foxtel has joined forces with the Socceroos superstar to launch these amazing two-day holiday camps across Australia.
Would-be recruits simply have to go to www.foxtelallstars.com.au and tell the Green and Gold legend, in 25 words or less, about their football dreams.
Camps have already been held in Sydney, Newcastle and Townsville. Now it’s time to roll out the opportunity to other parts of Australia.
Entries close for the Melbourne camp (Dec 7-8) on November 19, Adelaide (Dec 14-15) on November 22 and Brisbane (Dec 19-20) on November 28. So you better get cracking
The Academy is open to players aged 6 to 11 and offers youngsters an opportunity to learn the ins and outs of football preparation and training.
The 50 participants at each camp will be selected by current stars and hand-picked coaches and each will be able to bring a friend with them who is new to the game.
All up, 1000 youngsters will get their chance to take part. And with the Socceroos heading off to Brazil in June next year there’s never been a better time to start thinking big.
World Cup hero and New York Red Bulls star Tim Cahill said: “My passion is to increase the footprint of football in Australia and I’m excited that Foxtel share the same enthusiasm I have for growing the game.
“To me it’s a perfect partnership that will deliver what is needed to provide children of Australia a fun and active way of enjoying football and helping them to follow their dreams.”
