An Introduction to Futsal Coach Development Event

Booking is now open for this exciting event.

Cornwall FA are delighted to have Ian Parkes (previous England Futsal player and current FA Youth Coach Developer: Futsal Lead) delivering a Futsal specific coach development event focusing on the fundamentals of Futsal.

Futsal is an exciting, fun and fast paced 5v5 format of the game, played indoors with a smaller and weighted ball. The nature of the Futsal provides lots of opportunities to develop more skilful players in a creative and expressive manner therefore this coach development event will explore the fundamentals of futsal and how this format of the game can be used to maximise player engagement and development. 

Cornwall FA Football Development Manager Daniel Greenough said, “We are excited to be running a Futsal Specific coach development event and to have someone of Ian Parkes’ calibre delivering the event guarantees an extremely insightful evening for grassroots coaches in attendance. Futsal is a brilliant way of helping players develop new skills in a fun and fast-paced environment so if you are a Cornish grassroots coach, we would encourage you to come and observe the session Ian will deliver in January”.
