Perth Glory star Travis Dodd has spent two days in Alice Springs on the 2012 FIFA Indigenous Grassroots Coaching Course.

Dodd, the first Indigenous player to score for the Socceroos said the chance to help develop grassroots football, within Indigenous communities was extremely important.

“These programs are essential to create an awareness and ‘passion- for the game, especially for grassroots football participants, their families and surrounding communities,” Dodd said.

“We also need to link local players to club football.

“The course was a great success and I look forward to making a positive contribution on a regular basis.
