The Canadian Soccer Association in cooperation with FIFA delegates recently held Futsal workshops in the areas of Coaching and Refereeing in Laval and Ottawa with the aim of the advancement of the sport of Futsal in Canada.
The FIFA Futsal Coach Instructor course ran from 18 October to 22 October in Laval, QC. The course material was designed to prepare the participants to provide training to additional Canadian Futsal coaches. FIFA Instructor Constantine Konstin led 30 participants representing six Canadian provinces as well as two guest trainers from Burkina Faso and Cote D’Ivoire through the five day session.
“The course provided a great introduction for the game of Futsal into the Canadian Soccer Association structure,” said Ms. Beliveau. “The combination of expert instructors in the game of soccer and others in the game of Futsal created a great mix and a good model for sharing expertise.”
The OSA Futsal Committee is pleased to present one day Futsal workshops/clinics for any member clubs that will be starting up new Futsal leagues or programs. We would like to provide valuable information on the important FIFA Futsal laws of the game, tactical components and comprehension from a Canadian Futsal national team player, all to assist coaches and technical development directors who will be involved in starting these new leagues up.
The workshop will last approximately 6-8 hours.
Please kindly contact the Futsal Department with information regarding the workshop date so that Futsal committee members can coordinate to visit your district to provide this vitally valuable overview of Futsal before your leagues or training sessions begin.
