United Talent Centres Delivering

Gold Coast United Academy Player Pathway System



Gold Coast United Talent Centres continue to deliver with twenty young footballers graduating from the ‘class of 2019’ into the United Academy ranks for season 2020.

Established to provide local community club players with the chance to undertake additional training supervised by United’s best youth coaches, the initiative is reaping rewards for players and club alike.


Head of the Academy’s SAP & Youth programs, Jamie Dixon, is excited about improving the Talent Centre offering and is working hard with his fellow SAP coaches to deliver the best possible programs to the region’s up and coming future stars.

“Our player pathway system is proving to be a huge success with our Talent Centres providing to be the ideal platform for young players to enter into the SAP and NPL systems.”


“We are super excited to start our 2020 intake in the hope to unearth more untapped potential.”


Trials for United’s 2020 Talent Centre programs are set to get underway soon for young boys and girls keen to join the club’s pre-SAP (U7-8’s ) and Talent Centre (U9-12) groups.

The club’s 2020 Talent Centre programs will run out of GCU affiliate clubs, Robina City Soccer Club and Tweed United Soccer Club, with plans underway to extend the offering to take in more of United’s catchment area.
