Nanango State School students were introduced to futsal last Thursday when two regional coaches visited the school.
Nearly a dozen students took up the offer of training from the coaches, one of whom is a former Australian junior coach
The students learned the skills very quickly and look forward to an ongoing program and eventual games.
The community-based program is entirely focused on basic skills development.
Some of the best soccer players started with futsal.
The game is played indoors, in a quick reaction-based environment, and originates from countries where children don’t play soccer until they are teenagers.
