NNSW Futsal Academy and School Holiday Clinics

Dear NNSW Futsal Member,

We would like to present to you our Gol Brasil Academy for 2019. This will be our second year and after a great Nationals we are keen to continue to develop and improve our players over the Autumn and Winter months. This year’s Academy will be led by two of our most experienced and current players Nathan Baker and David Yager. Together they have a combined experience of 40 years of playing Futsal and due to involvement with the Newcastle Titans, Australian Teams and AFA tours have had exposure to the latest skills and tactics from around the globe. Both players took on coaching roles 3 years ago, coaching both junior teams and senior teams at Nationals. They are highly motivated to pass on this experience and knowledge during the Academy. Nathan is a court player and David a goalkeeper so experience comes from both ends of the court.

The objective of the Academy is to continually keep evolving individual NNSW players by targeting specific futsal skills and tactics. It will benefit both court players and goalkeepers. The Academy will prepare and improve any players selected on AFA and Australian Tours, current and future State/Nationals players and Schools players. Or even the club player just looking to improve.

The Academy will be 10 x 90-minute sessions beginning the last week of March and finishing early July (full dates below). U8s-u11s will be Sunday afternoons. U12s-U15s will be Friday evenings. The venue will be at The Parc Indoor Sports @ Howzat in Cooks Hill. Entrance on Brooks St.  The Academy will cost $175 which includes a Gol Brasil training shirt. For any returning Academy members that still have their shirt the cost is $150. Payment will be due at the first Session by either cash or cheque (credit cards or debit cards will incur a $5.00 fee).

The first 3 sessions will focus on individual skills before we start putting those skills together for offensive and defensive tactical plays. We will cover set plays, formations, rotations, shooting, defense, goalkeeping, blocking and much more. So, if you are interested in becoming a more complete futsal player then please fill out the following form:


Not only is the Academy a way to improve our players, but as a new initiative of NNSW Futsal it will be used to develop our coaches. Any current or aspiring coaches that would like help to develop their coaching are invited to attend and view a session.  Under the guidance of our Coaching Director George Poulos coaches will be given an insight into how to build and run a Futsal Training Session. Interested coaches need to contact us before attending a session via our email .
