Pictured above is FFSA’s Head of Game Development John Mundy with STARplex Courts Manager Ricky Simpson.
FFSA will bring valuable Futsal coaching education, along with nationally accredited referee training which will enhance competitions at STARplex.
The relationship hopes to encourage new young players to come and have fun at a community level, as well as tapping into existing talent in the region, providing opportunities into our existing player pathway and hopefully go on and represent the state in domestic and international tournaments.
FFSA have recently announced they will be taking eleven teams to an international tournament in the Gold Coast in January 2018, with qualification to the 2018 World Futsal Championships in Orlando US up for grabs.
John Mundy (FFSA’s Head of Game Development) said:
“Futsal is an important component in our development of young players and I believe that the partnership between FFSA and Ricky Simpson’s team at STARplex will prove rewarding for players, Coaches and Match Officials, benefitting Gawler and its surrounding communities”
The journey begins with a Futsal Soccer Clinic on Tuesday 10th October. 8-14 year olds can learn to play the ‘Brazilian way’ with former Adelaide United and UEFA Champions League player Cristiano Dos Santos. Players will be put through their paces on the court for the day and even get to take home a complimentary showbag.
