JETT Hansen, Blake Cordell, James Ayres and Ethan Ulrich are all dreaming big; they can afford to.
They are four of the first players from the Mid-North Coast selected for a talent identification program with the Brisbane Roar Academy with an eye on the big time.
And they can quite easily live out that dream through the academy after they officially announced a partnership with the Port Macquarie region on Monday.
Roar Academy general manager Warren Moon said they would look to set up similar talent identification programs in other locations such as Townsville, Cairns and Mackay.
But Port Macquarie would be the regional town leading the way.
"We want to do a better job in the development space; the owners have given full support behind an academy and running it properly by doing talent identification across the state," he said.
"The only thing people look at is that Northern NSW is not Queensland, but Queensland is a big state.
"We can go six hours one way and six hours this way and we're over the border, but this is a region and an area that needs and deserves more attention by providing a pathway for these kids."
Moon said under the agreement the club would grow their network of players in the hope of also unearthing future A-League, W-League, Matildas or Socceroos representatives in 10 years.
But it wasn't about improving the Brisbane Roar name, it was providing pathways at grassroots level that have been severely abandoned over the years.
"The big cities have most of the teams because that's where the pools are, but historically you look back at all of the legends of our game and they've all come from regional areas," Moon said.
"We see an opportunity in regional areas where we can find and unearth talent that deserves an opportunity.
"Whether they're playing for Brisbane Roar, Newcastle Jets, Sydney FC ... if they're going to one day represent the Socceroos or the Matildas, I think we're doing our job."
Moon suggested setting up the academy would be the first step in the club having a regular footprint in northern New South Wales.
This included taking fixtures away from Brisbane as they saw value in the area in terms of talent in the region and a taste for sport.
"Being here and seeing this magnificent facility ... we don't make any promises, it's my job to go back and speak to the club," Moon said.
"But there's a real opportunity to bring teams to Port Macquarie in the future whether it's academy teams or whether it's W-League or even A-League.
"This is the starting point and do we want to build on it? Absolutely."
