Vinzie Zuill, the president of Footy Promotions/Footy Force Futsal, said: “We are thrilled to appoint Jada to the new Women’s Futsal Co-ordinator role. At Footy Promotions, we use futsal as a development tool to improve players’ skills. This role is important to us as we look forward to encouraging more girls to play futsal.

“We are confident that Jada will be successful in this initiative, as she is very passionate about the sport and coaching players. She was also one of the 15 coaches that Footy Promotions had sponsored for the Futsal Level 1 Diploma course in 2018, so it is a great to see her progress into the new role of leading the women’s programme.”

Samuels said: “I am really excited to take on the new role as Footy Promotions Women’s Futsal Co-ordinator. I was first introduced to the game of futsal in middle school. I naturally fell in love with the game because I already loved the game of football. A few years ago, I was given the opportunity to work as an assistant coach for Footy Tots. Here is where I learnt a lot about the technical side of the game. I took every opportunity to learn from the senior futsal coaches and co-ordinators.

“In returning to Bermuda, I can say that I am eager to return to coaching. I hope to provide more and new materials for the players. Being able to start up a new programme for girls will be a great step forward in helping these young ladies pursue their dreams to go farther with football or futsal. Starting up this programme will be life-changing for me and I hope to inspire the next generation of girls to follow their dreams.”

Samuels will be coaching at the Futsal Camp beginning on July 5 at the National Sports Centre. Girls between the ages of 5 and 12 are encouraged to attend. Also, girls are welcome to play in the Youth Futsal League beginning on June 27.

Samuels added: “I look forward to launching more initiatives for girls, starting with our girls’ festival days in August.”
