Simon Zahra, a current footballer playing in the N.S.W. Premier League, who has over 20 years playing experience and over 8 years coaching experience. Simon has played professional football in Australia, the United States of America and Europe, and has represented N.S.W. and Australia at Futsal.
Simon’s drive as a coach comes from the realization that he can make a difference at any level, and his passion can be heard in his words:
“This great game has given me so much. It’s given me a chance to travel and experience different cultures, grow and mature within myself, make life-long friends, and most of all allow me to do what I love….play football at a high level. I am very fortunate with the opportunities I have been blessed with.
Antonio is an up and coming footballing star, currently playing in the NSW mens NPL league. He has always had a passion for passing on his football knowledge. Antonio is currently studying Exercise Science and Physiology at university.
As I continue my football journey and continue to learn, another passion has evolved inside me. That passion is seeing boys and girls of all ages at all levels enjoy what I enjoy….the beautiful game of football. I believe that if I can improve one boy or girls lifestyle by helping them become more healthy and active, or fulfill their potential as a footballer, then coaching is all worthwhile and more of us should do it. “
Soccer and sport have a been a big part of my life, its something that i feel helps us develop our character. Ever since i could, i was kicking a ball, that progressed into my passion for Football. This passion extended to opportunities in travelling and teaching in various countries as well as playing semi-professional football for some top clubs in the NSW premier league. Having now taught as a PDHPE teacher for over 10 years, it is now time i gave back what i have learned over those years and invest that into our future footballing generations.
