What is 5UP Futsal?
5UP FUTSAL is a development program especially designed for kids aged 5 & 6 years old. This program will run for approximately 14 weeks and will include training once a week and a game on Saturday morning. Training days will usually be Thursday afternoons and game days will be Saturday mornings. These games are designed for the young player to develop faster by having more touches of the ball while having fun, with a strong focus on participation and enjoyment while playing in a team environment. This program is a great way to introduce your child to the fast and exciting game of Futsal.
The Players will get a training session once per week for 1 hour with their team coach. These training sessions will usually be on Thursday afternoons. The time will be determined by when best suits your Coach and the rest of the team members. All training will be held at Redlynch Central Sports Stadium. There will be a Coaching supervisor at these training sessions to ensure that kids are getting the maximum enjoyment while still developing the skills needed to play Futsal. The training sessions are designed to meet all the requirements needed for each child to develop in a step-by-step process.
When will it start?
There are 2 seasons for 5UP Futsal in one year. There is a Summer Season which runs from October to March the following year, and there is a Winter Season which runs from April to September. There will be NO training or games over any School or Public Holidays. Fixtures will be posted on our website www.redlynchcentralsports.com.au.
Parent/Volunteer Coaches Required
We require parents or volunteers who are willing to help, to become Coaches for the 5UP teams. If you are interested in becoming a coach for the 5UP program, please contact Karen on 4039 4378 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Teams will be made up of 6 to 7 players per team. Games will consist of 2 x 15 minute halves and will be played with a Goalkeeper + 4 court players on the pitch at a time with 1 or 2 substitute per team. Each player will be rotated to have a go as a Goalkeeper to ensure that all players learn both the skills of a court player and a Goalkeeper (the Goalkeeper plays a very important role in Futsal). Each player will also be rotated with the substitutes to give every player the same amount of time on the pitch.
Cost of the program
Each season has approximately 14 to 16 weeks with games and training each week.
Cost will depend on how many weeks are in each season.
All players must be registered with Redlynch Central Sports Stadium to join the 5UP Futsal Program.
