About Us

Gerry Gomez




The Sydney Soccer Football Academy has been founded by ex-NSL and ex-Socceroos player Gerry Gomez . Gerry wanted to establish a soccer academy that specialised in training elite youth league players who already play for youth league teams but still need one-on-one training that allows for more specialist work. This will allow players to develop individual skills and also works on any areas of weaknesses.

Gerry has coached youth teams in the last few years and could see that many of the youth league players that he coached or saw playing, were good team players and athletes but often lacked that first touch that all top players have. They could see that working as a team coach meant that most coaching sessions were quite rightly based around team play and requirements with little or no time available to work with individuals.



This site provides information about the Sydney Soccer Football Academy, a soccer academy aimed at developing elite soccer players playing at Youth League Level who want to develop further and eventually play at the highest level that they can play at. The academy is run by Gerry Gomez, an ex-Socceroo who has played in Australia and overseas, who understands what it takes to play professionally, and who has the expertise and experience to help nurture and develop young players in Australia.


The aim of the Sydney Soccer Football Academy is to concentrate on the individual player, develop their strengths, help eliminate their weaknesses and at the same time make sure that these youth players enjoy themselves and have fun in the process.

Gerry Gomez played for Hakoah, Sydney City, Marconi Stallions, Apia, Parramatta Melita Eagles and played for Kelantan in the Malaysia League. He represented the NSW State team 1983-1993. Gerry also represented Australian Young Socceroos and in1980-1981 Australian Youth Team, 1984-1990 Australian Socceroos Squad, 1993 Represented Australia in the President's Cup in Korea.

SSFA are also able to organize international full time development live in programs in several European destinations like Spain, Belgium and Germany






SSFA have recently merged with Global Football Management which have purchased the official rights to Plan Marcet Australia. Plan Marcet is a revolutionary coaching methodology that is FIFA approved. It is Spanish based program and designed to improve individual technique and quality by a solid educating process.

Plan Marcet educates the player in different cycles. The Plan Marcet program also works in reduced size groups, which allows the coach to focus directly on each player, detecting their strengths and weaknesses.
Planning and exercise designs are thought according to the players needs. In this way students get a progressive formation as they mature and grow.

Plan Marcet programs are used all around the world including the Real Madrid and Espanol Academies.

Australia joins the international project of the Foundation Marcet and is on the long list of countries which, thanks to the Foundation Marcet, train their young people through football and to achieve greater international projection.
