England Head Coach delighted as Notre Dame Catholic College recieves free Futsal starter pack

December 06, 2017

Notre Dame Catholic College, in Everton, are all geared up to start playing Futsal after receiving a free starter pack – news that has delighted Michael Skubala, England Futsal Head Coach.

 

The pack contains 2x Futsal Goals, 10x Nike Futsal size 4 Pro balls, 2x Sets of coloured Nike Bibs and a set of floor markers which will help develop Futsal within the school and improve the pupils knowledge and ability in relation to Futsal. 

 

The starter packs are designed to adapt existing sports halls, playgrounds and other hard surface facilities to make them Futsal-ready. The packs came courtesy of a £300,000 Futsal scheme, which is funded by The FA and delivered by the Football Foundation.

 

Futsal is a five-a-side game, normally played on a flat indoor pitch with hockey-sized goals and a size four ball with a reduced bounce. The exciting, fast-paced game is played across the world and is officially recognised by both UEFA and FIFA.

 

Regarded as an important and growing game, it is hoped that the provision of equipment and courses will lead to the development of more Futsal players, leagues, competitions and facilities across the country.

 

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. 

 

As well as delivering the Futsal scheme, the Football Foundation delivers Grow the Game and also the Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund on behalf of the Premier League, The FA and the Government, through Sport England. Since 2000, the Foundation has supported over 15,000 grassroots projects worth more than £1.4bn. 

 

Michael Skubala, England Futsal Head Coach, said: “A big well done to Notre Dame Catholic College for securing a Futsal starter pack – they have a bright future ahead of them now! We want to get more people playing the sport for the love of it and who knows; perhaps we’ll see some future international players unearthed as a result. Futsal is growing all the time and The FA, with the help of the Football Foundation, is dedicated to increasing its importance and popularity further For All.”

 

David Hodgson, PE Teacher at Notre Dame Catholic College said: 'This is a fantastic opportunity for the pupils and the school to develop a further understanding of Futsal and develop our practical ability in relation to the sport. I would like to take this chance to thank The FA, The Football Foundation and The Liverpool County FA for investing in Notre Dame with this very beneficial started pack. This pack will offer all pupils the chance to take part in Futsal and will offer the school plenty of sporting opportunities going forward.'

Year 7 Football Team

November 14, 2017

This is our successful year 7 football team with Head teacher Mrs Harrison and their manager Mr Hodgson. The lads competed in the Liverpool Cup against Childwall and won 6-4 in an absolute thriller of a cup tie in which they showed fantastic levels of determination and resilience throughout. Our goal scorers were Niall King x2, Kian Skinley x2, Dean Peet and Jamie Dunne. They came from behind three times during the game and showed great levels of team spirit, giving a brilliant account of Notre Dame to all involved. We would like to place on record our congratulations to the pupils and wish them the best of luck in the future.
