About us

WELCOME To TheCrusaders Futsal Club

Crusaders FC is a family focused and orientated club on the Gold Coast providing professional futsal and football coaching to players from 3 years old.

The club was established on the Gold Coast in 2014 by Head Coach, Glynn Boyd
and his family. Glynn’s football career spans over 30 years as both a professional player and coach. His coaching credentials include UEFA and FFA licencing.

Crusaders FC has rapidly established itself as one of the leading and most
successful clubs in the South East Region for player development. The coaching
team at the club has expanded to deliver a variety of professional programs to
players of all skill level, schools, childcare centres and football clubs. More
recently Crusaders have embarked on international football tours to provide a
diverse range of opportunity for members as well as player pathways.

The coaching sessions at Crusaders are focused on the technical and tactical
aspects of the game as well as promoting player confidence in a fun learning
environment. Players are supported and encouraged to learn and respect the
game as well as learning valuable life skills that are adaptable both on and off the court/field of play.

The four corners of the Crusaders development program (technical, tactical,
physical and psychological) will be practiced and assessed at every session.
Crusaders FC is committed to nurturing, progressing and developing all players
to be the best version of themselves.

What our parents and players say

Michelle and Jason Chu

Lead by Glynn and Janice, the coaches, managers and team at Crusaders are passionate about developing each child to be their best as a player and a person.  They are dedicated to nurturing each child’s love of the game  and recognise the importance of positive guidance and encouragement to achieve this.  They know every child by name and understand the personal approach necessary to influence and guide the very young player to the older more experienced one.

Con

What an amazing Football experience Ethan has had! Training with some of the top teams in the Irish, Scottish and English Premier Leagues. Not to mention numerous Tours of some of the greatest Stadiums in the UK and appearing as a team Mascot. Also being inspired by attending top level games, and meeting some of his heroes at Manchester United. Thank you so much to Glynn Boyd and Crusaders Futsal Club for arranging a wonderful Tour! We have all loved every minute of it!

Lucy and Clint

Glynn and Sammy not only have you taught our son skills but you have coached him as a whole player. We are proud to see the way he respects the coaches, the way he holds himself when things don’t go his way, the way he can celebrate others achievements. This is a credit to the dedication passion and time you share with the children. We are so proud to say we are a part of the Hope Island Crusaders Futsal Club.

We have a range of programs to suit players of all ages and abilities
