ONLINE FUTSAL COACHING EDUCATION PROGRAMME

Hello everyone, please see below the online Futsal Coaching Education Programme that Sergio Gargelli (Head Coach for China Futsal National Team) and I (Head of Performance for Bay Area Futsal Club) are delivering together since September to several organisations such as the Futsal Association of Trinidad & Tobago. Have a look to the video, the pictures and the info and let us know if you have any questions.

The programme has four different levels covering everything related to futsal from grassroot to elite level. Also, how futsal can help to develop the modern football player. We are always open to collaborate with different associations, federations or clubs.

ENGLAND FUTSAL HISTORY

NOTE 1: Before even starting this post, I would like to acknowledge my co-author, English futsal pioneer and friend, Mr Kevin Bryant for all the help to put this document together. Also, I would like to give a million of thanks to Mr Mark Potter, another futsal friend and Scottish futsal pioneer for providing valuable information, pictures, chats with me and most importantly for connecting me with Mr Geoffrey Payton. Geoff is the another English futsal pioneer! Mr Geoffrey Payton (according to all the information collected) is the person who started futsal in Colne (Lancanshire) in 1988. A fantastic history behind that needs to be unveiled. Muchas gracias Geoff!!

INTRODUCTION

"Futsal" started on the 8th of September of 1930 when Juan Carlos Ceriani, a teacher in Montevideo (Uruguay) created a version of indoor football for recreation in YMCAs. This new sport was originally developed for playing on basketball courts, and a rule book was published in September 1933. Ceriani's goal was to create a team game that could be played indoor or outdoor but that was similar to football. Ceriani, writing the rule book, took as examples the principles of football (the possibility to touch the ball with every part of the body except for the hands), and he took rules from other sports too: from basketball the number of team players (five) and the game duration (40 actual minutes); from waterpolo the rules about the goalkeeper; from handball for the field and goal sizes. Futsal, f煤tbol sala and futebol de sal茫o will be covered on this project.

OBJECTIVES

The objective of this research has been three-fold: a) to recognise and acknowledge the people that got involved and helped in this process; b) to document the history and the steps of development that futsal took in England and c) to know the history, to understand the present and improve the future (very similar to Carl Sagan’s quote). 

Of course, when this type of studies are carried out, there is the risk to miss out information or key point. We apologise in advance if that has happened. It was not our intention. We would like to encourage anyone that has more information to help us to fill in some of the gaps or to send us documents that prove some key point of the futsal history in England.

CONCLUSIONS

One more time, and as I mentioned before when this type of studies are carried out, there is a huge risk to miss out information or key point. We truly apologise in advance if that has happened. It was not our intention. Therefore, if you have any piece of information that you think it should be included, we would like to encourage anyone to help us to fill in some of the gaps or to send us documents that prove some key point of the futsal history in England.

These last two months doing this personal project have been amazing . I only hope that you, readers, enjoy reading this document as much as I enjoyed researching, talking to Kevin, Mark, specially Geoff and others from all around the world. It has been an unforgettable experience.  

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS 

Again, thanks Kevin, Mark and specially Geoffrey. I really think that English futsal has been very unfair with you and here are "my two cents" to the cause. 


NOTE 2: One more note, remember that once you have downloaded the PDF document, the 90% of the pictures are hyperlinked to the original source of information. Follow the links for more deep information about it. Enjoy!
