Mark Atkinson, South Auckland Elite Head Coach, Former New Zealand International

The SAE (South Auckland Elite) football group has visited the Olé Football Academy on multiple occasions since 2014.

They have catered for our needs whether we have 2 players or 22 players, staying on site or off. On every occasion Olé have been very effective in supporting our time spent in Wellington.

Their quality of coaching and application of content is second to none and they provide an appropriate environment for sporting and social development. What has impressed me most are the philosophies and values that are evident through each age group and are consistent from each coach.

Olé have a clear vision towards nurturing young talent.  Developing future stars requires long term vision,  constant work and patience. Their vision, mission and perseverance in pursuing the ultimate goal are evident in their success.
