SJFA was represented with 3 coaches at the FA Level 1 Futsal Course arranged by the FA for their CDCs (Community Development Centres) at the Birmingham International Futsal arena, 28th April 2018.
Earlier this year 17 SJFA coaches obtained their FA Level 1 Futsal Qualification and they are now joined by:
• Fuad ‘Pep’ Musa

The gathering in the Midlands also facilitated networking with other CDC club representatives.
Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced small sided football game that is widely played across the world and is officially recognised by both UEFA and FIFA.
The nature of the game places a large emphasis on technical skill and ability in situations of high pressure, and is subsequently an excellent breeding ground for football competencies that can be translated into the 11-a-side format of the game.
Futsal is an extremely important way for kids to develop their skills and understanding of the game.
– Ronaldinho – FIFA World Footballer of the Year 2004 and 2005
Many of the top world class footballers played Futsal in their youth and credit it with supporting their footballing development; players of the calibre of Pele, Zico, Ronaldinho, Kaka, Lionel Messi to name but a few of the South American legends all played and enjoyed Futsal. But Futsal has not just helped produce South American football stars. On the European stage Cristiano Ronaldo, Deco, Xavi and Cesc Fabregas, amongst many others, have played Futsal to develop their skills.
