NNSW School Competitions

Every year NNSW Futsal undertakes regional school tournaments to advertise and promote our game and every year more primary and secondary schools are entering the competition. School Futsal has become popular as it doesn’t matter how big or small your school is you can enter a team and unlike the outdoor school soccer competitions where you only play one game if you lose, with futsal you play a number of games and have various pathways for yourself and your school. The generic letter that is sent out each year follows and will give you more information on the program. We ask if you know that your school doesn’t participate in our program to please guide them, to this page. Many Thanks! NNSW Futsal.
