IFA graduate Curtis Mason to return as part of staff team
Former IFA boy, Curtis Mason, is set to return to Loughborough to join the staff team as our Head of Strength and Conditioning for the 2018/19 season.
After graduating from Loughborough in 2017 with a degree in Sports Science Curtis has been working as a Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer for the last year. He has continued his playing career with Kettering Futsal Club and also been an integral part of the England U23’s and most recently as part of the Senior national side.
However, he’s never made it a secret that he’d always hoped to return to Loughborough and he believes this season is the perfect opportunity for him to do that whilst also giving something back to the academy programme. Curtis says “I’m excited to experience things from a new perspective as part of the coaching staff; sharing my knowledge and experience with the players“.
Curtis reflects back on his time on the IFA as a student-player:
“My 3 years studying and playing futsal in Loughborough were definitely 3 of my best so far! I learnt a lot, developed both on and off court and made some friends for life. I owe a lot to the coaches and staff on the academy for all the time and effort they put into us; in addition to the massive opportunities The IFA & Loughborough have opened up for me since graduating.”
Curtis was a real credit to the programme as a student-player and we look forward to welcoming him as a key part of the IFA staff team in a few weeks time. He will also be putting on his boots for Loughborough Futsal Club in their bid for success in the 2018/19 Futsal Super League.
