Course Content:

  • Develop an appreciation and understanding of the application of the individual techniques of Futsal within game play.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the underlying core strands of Futsal: in possession, out of possession and transitional play through a game based approach.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the Futsal Laws of the Game.

  • Show an awareness of the part Futsal can play in the development of young players.
  • Reinforce the different coaching interactions possible when coaching players.


Following days one and two of the course, there is a four - six week period where the learner can deliver, log (in their learner pack) and review sessions in the three areas (attacking, defending and counter attacking). When returning on day three, coaches will be involved in some small group delivery work to demonstrate their understanding of the game. Day 4 will consolidate learning from days 1–3.

Successful completion:

  • Complete all 4 days of the course.
  • Complete a minimum of 3 coaching sessions away from the course which are planned, delivered and reviewed with evidence completed in the learning journal.
  • Satisfactory delivery in a small coaching group on day 3.
