Futsal pair to attend US clinic
Young players Malachai Belboda and Matthew Elliott, have been selected from the Samba Futsal Clinic to train with the Denison Cabral Futsal Academy in Maryland.
The clinic, organised by Footy Promotions, concluded on Sunday at Mount Saint Agnes gymnasium, Belboda, 9, and Elliott, 12, impressing the coaches.
It was under the direction of Denison Cabral, the Brazilian-born youth technical director of the United States Futsal Federation and president of DCFA.
Special guests at the event included Kate Laukhart, of DCFA in Maryland, Gabe Penaloza, the United Football Academy in Los Angeles and Omari Hutchinson, the 12-year-old Arsenal “wonderkid”.
“The Samba Futsal Clinic was an amazing event and great fun,” Vinzie Zuill, the president of Footy Promotions, said. “Over 75 players participated in this event and had the opportunity to be trained by Denison, who delivered top-class training sessions.
“This year, Omari Hutchinson of Arsenal accepted our invitation to attend the clinic. This was an added bonus for the players as they had a chance to train and play with him.
“The players were very focused, had good energy, showed their skills and made a lasting impression on our guests. We have worked in partnership with Denison over the years so we are pleased to offer opportunities through his academy for local players.”
