The Hawkes Bay Futsal Academy offers the perfect opportunity for players looking to level up on & off the court. With weekly training sessions developed by our NZF C License coaches, players in the Futsal Academy will develop new skills quickly, giving them more confidence on the court. Players who excel in the Academy will have the opportunity to be involved in our teams competing at tournaments in NZ and further afield in the Gold Coast.

Here are a few reasons to get into Futsal:

  1. Speed of Play - small space, less time to make decisions, encourages players to think and react quickly
  2. More engagement - you are involved in the game 100% of the time you are on the court
  3. Ball Skills & Control - 600% more touches on the ball in a Futsal game than a football game
  4. Creativity - freedom to play freely, be creative and have fun - have you mastered the toe-poke?
