My names Dan Mijovic and I am the founder and Head Coach of Pro Eleven Football Academy. A little intro about my background I have been passionate about football for as long as i can remember having started playing from the age of 6 and never looking back since that age.
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 dubbed "The White Pele" back in Yugoslavia before coming to Australia where he start 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 and some unsuccessful pro trials I played several years at Semi Professional Level in NSW Super League (Tier 2 at the time) before looking to 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 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.
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 clients they become part of the footballing family.
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.
