What’s current?

We are now entering our busiest period of the year. Futsal Escocia Coaching Sessions are near capacity and the Futsal Escocia Youth Winter Leagues in Fife have an amazing 112 teams involved!!

Futsal Escocia Ayrshire and Fife have launched their Ninos programmes for 3-5 years olds. Sessions have received good feedback and provide children with a pathway into our coaching programme that starts for 5 year olds. Our Ninos learning zone is being updated on a regular basis and we have just added a monthly homework document for children and parents to do together for the children to improve their Spanish. Please check the Ninos section for further information on Futsal Ninos.

Along with Futsal Ninos, we have also launched our fantastic new mascot, Ricardo the Jaguar. Ricardo will visit sessions across the country and be involved in promoting Futsal Escocia.

Future Plans

Future plans include a girls only section and kit for our Ninos.

A girls only section is an area we have tried to work on previously without success, however, we believe that girls should have the same opportunities as the boys.

We have ordered kit for our Ninos and we hop to have this in place and available to purchase this month.

Operational

Attendance/Fees

If your child is unable to attend a session, where possible, please let us know in advance. Our coaches plan and prepare sessions based on the numbers they are expecting to attend. A simple text or message keeping us up to date makes our jobs that little bit easier.

Fife Academy payments are now paid via the ClassForKids booking system and paid on a monthly standing order basis. Most parents have transferred across to the new system with a number to transfer across this month. The system provides coaches with better access to medical information and emergency contact details. It also provides better communication between us and the parents.

Our other academies remain at £30 per block of 6 sessions. Fees are to be paid in advance. Full details are contained within the fees section.

Haven

We are delighted to say that Futsal Escocia will be responsible for coaching staff at Haven caravan parks for 2019. This is a tremendous opportunity for us to have our Futsal Ninos programme and a new Futsal to Football coaching programme at Haven parks across the UK. If you book a Haven holiday in 2019, look out for Futsal Ninos and/or Futsal to Football at the parks and give us your feedback on the coaches and sessions delivered.
