My names Dan Mijovic and I am the founder and Head Coach of Pro Eleven Football Academy. A little intro about me, I have been passionate about football for as long as i can remember having started kicking the ball from a early age i was a late bloomer when it came to signing up for a club at the age of 9.
I had the privilege of training and picking the Brain of my uncle Dusan 'Darcy' Purac who was a brilliant former professional player in europe where he was dubbed "The White Pele" back in Yugoslavia before coming to Australia to play before retiring and starting the Brazilian Soccer School & Dusan Purac International Football Academy where I had spent most my pre & teenage years learning my trade as well as begining my coaching journey.
As local to the Sydney I started out as a Wenty Waratah & Manly Vale FC junior before I was able to develop my youth football with one of Australia's best Youth clubs at the time Parramatta Eagles. After turning 18 I tried my hand at pro trials with clubs in Serbia. Once i returned played several years at Semi Professional Level in NSW Super League (Tier 2 at the time) before settling in the local MWFA Premier League competition where i've been able to consistently play a competitive level but also allowing me focus on my coaching career.
Since focusing on my coaching journey my passion and drive has been to help as many players i can develop into the best footballers they can become through all my experiences. The footballing knowledge from the 3 different Socceroo Coaches I was forunate enough to be coached by, the skills and technical drills that my Uncles academy utilised to produce countless professionals as well as my own footballing journey to pass on the knowledge of what things I didnt do which made me fall short of a professional career.
I believe every player is a UNIQUE INDIVIDUAL and thats exactly how i look to develop every one of my players as they become more then players they become part of the footballing family.
I am Andy and I begun my football pathway at narrabeen fc before moving on to manly united. After 7 years playing for Manly United I returned to Narrabeen FC. I turned my focus to coaching junior football and begun coaching & running the Narrabeen FC Academy in addition to Narrabeen Sports High School. I am really motivated to provide quality coaching to junior football of all levels and I feel that Pro Eleven is the best place to do that.
Pro Eleven Football academy was born after noticing the opportunities of developing players in Australia differently and not coaching with a "One for all" method. In a time where Australian coaching has become about cirriculums and text books we are bringing back coaching from experience and proven methods.
We believe every player is not just another student but a UNIQUE INDIVIDUAL and everything we do focuses around ensuring that EVERY player has a different need, strength and opportuntiy that needs to be catered for and we strive to ensure we tailor make individual programs for every players whilst keeping to our Positive and Fun rhetoric.
The Pro Eleven team have over 30 playings years of Semi-Professional/Professional experience between the team, having been coached / mentored by numerious former Socceroo's, European & Australian professional players all our techniques, drills and programs are developed based on result driven experience.
