(Former Matildas and USWNT Head Coach)
During my first stint as coach of the Matildas in 1994 - 1997, I approached Paul to become involved with our national team program.
After coaching spells in Japan and the United States I returned to Australia to once again take over the national senior team.
Paul was a natural choice to be my goalkeeper coach.
Paul’s understanding of the art of goalkeeping (technical and tactical) is among the best in the country. This knowledge led Paul to become the goalkeeping coach for all our women’s teams; Under 17s through to the national senior team, the Matildas.
Paul, congratulations on the Paul Jones Goalkeeping Academy.

Your contribution to my development can not be overstated. Working with you for the past 5 years I have developed from a promising young goalkeeper to a senior international and professional footballer.
You are the best,
(Australian U17 's & U20's National Team, 2013 & 2014)
Thank you for allowing me to dream.
I am only at the start of my international career. I know that without your help I would never have got this far.
I want to follow in the steps of other Canberran’s that under your tuition have gone on to play football at the highest level. Many thanks,
