The GOL Brasil Program aims to offer aspiring players the opportunity to train like professionals. GOL Brasil Australia is the official Australian affiliate of the parent organisation GOL Brasil which is based in Brazil and co-ordinated by CBF A License Coaches.

GOL Brasil was set up in its home country to develop and export young players to the world. NNSW Futsal Gol Brazil offers the same experience for Australian players.

The GOL Brasil program will enable providers to establish accredited programs at various levels depending on the level of participation, quality of players and available facilities. The GOL Brasil Program has enabled NNSW Futsal to grow its programs to higher levels to help all its ever-increasing clubs, coaches and players members.  In Newcastle, The Newcastle Titans Academy Program will be undertaken by senior Futsal accredited coaches, Technical Director David Yager, NNSW Futsal Coordinator, Titans Coach Nathan Baker, Head coach, and AFA senior men’s Coach George Poulos. All three continue their association with CDF Brazil and undertake various courses to keep up with ever-changing trends. For any enquiries, email .

Contrary to what occurs in other countries, the sport of futsal in Australia has become reliant on football/soccer for its source of players, leading to the majority of participants treating it as a form of training and not a sport.  To further develop the game, we need to reverse this trend and have outdoor parties realise that sport enhances the football player. We need to breed a generation of futsal players that will become another Messi or Renaldo.

We aim to collaborate with outdoor clubs to educate players and coaches in the game of Futsal and create more opportunities for the elite players through our many pathways in AFA while providing opportunities for grassroots players to better themselves while having fun, especially in the off-season.
