The Footy Force Futsal Academy will launch their World Cup edition futsal programmes for 2018 on April 18 at CedarBridge Academy gym.

The programme consists of three age groups and is open to boys and girls from ages five to 15. Spaces are full for the 5-7 age group which begins next Wednesday at 10am, but there are limited spaces in the 8-11 and 12-15 age groups which starts on April 28 at 4.15 and 5.30 respectively.

The futsal curriculum is based on enhancing the player’s skills and development through futsal that can transition and benefit to their outdoor football game.

There are specific stages to player development where futsal compliments and integrates with football, such as quick thinking, creativity, movement, improved technique, ball control and passing skills. The programme will concentrate on all these areas and will heavily focus on teaching the game through play and will include a World Cup tournament.

Euriqué Wilkin, technical director of Footy Force Futsal Academy said: “We continue to look for new and creative ways to improve player’s skill, vision and technique through futsal. We want to fully embrace this World Cup year and themed our programme off of this summer’s tournament.

“Our sessions will be enforced and run in parallel with a friendly World Cup tournament. This year’s programme will also focus on developing our junior coaches through the use of training courses, coaching sessions, managing a “World Cup” team and refereeing games.

“The more we play, the more we learn and the better we can become. We encourage players to join our programme to enhance their skills while having loads of fun doing it,”

Registration forms are available on website or by emailing for more information.

The deadline for membership enrolment is April 23.
