Futsal coaching courses with the IFA

Developing a competent workforce for English futsal remains one of the main objectives of The International Futsal Academy. We are organising FA Futsal Level 1 and FA Futsal Level 2 coaching courses to contribute towards the education of new futsal coaches.

The FA Futsal Level 1 has no pre-requisite to join. It is ideal for anyone looking to take their first steps into Futsal, whether a player, referee, parent or an aspiring coach. The course will be delivered at Loughborough College by FA qualified tutors . The aim of this course is to provide candidates with an understanding of the techniques and skills related to the game of futsal. This course will help candidates organise and deliver basic Futsal practices, and will provide an introduction to the structure of the game, the laws and the role Futsal can play in developing underlying techniques and skills.
