Who is T3?

T3 Australia is an Australian football organisation empowering the grassroots level of football. T3 Australia was founded in July 2011 by Ehsan Popal and Matt Sim to develop non elite community level football. T3 Australia is a grassroots organisation (not academy) dedicated to increasing the standards of grassroots (non-elite) football through parent education, technical and cultural development.

T3's aim is to help community clubs assist children to develop both on the field, and off the field with the support of their parents. Their focus is not targeted at elite players, it is targeted at players of all abilities. By bridging the gap between the highly skilled and less skilled players, the overall level of ability, satisfaction and participation in the sport is increased, whilst giving young players an experience and technical base that will provide them with the platform to enjoy the game for many years ahead.
