Profile - Coach Gabriel Gomes

Gabriel Gomes is the founder of BFA. He has over ten years of football coaching and mentoring experience, working both in Australia and in his country of birth Brazil. He has been working with children from as young as four years old, right up to 18 years of age, as well as with adult teams.


Gabriel is also an experienced player in both conventional football and in futsal. He grew up playing and mastering the techniques of futsal. He is one of Sydney’s premier futsal coaches, and believes that before a child can successfully play on the grass it is vital to learn and develop futsal skills.
