Australian Futsal Association (AFA) has combined with Northern NSW Futsal (NNSWF) to provide these competitions and ensure all students have an opportunity for players to represent their school at the annual AFA National School tournament recognised as the biggest and best National School Futsal Tournament in Australia. Quite a number of NNSW students made National School’s teams last year and if you ask them, they will inform you how they thanked us for the experience.
If you are a local school who has supported Futsal, (“Indoor Soccer”) in the past we thank you and look forward to seeing you again. If you are a new school to the sport, contact our Operation Managers in the region closest to you!

I have attended three school nationals with the 2015 Futsal Championships being a huge success for teams for Northern New South Wales. I thank all who have been involved for making it a thoroughly enjoyable and momentous experience. We had over 200 committed players and coaching staff, who returned with 6x National Champion Teams, 1x Grand Finalist, 3x Semi Finalist, and 2x Quarter Finalists, out of 22 teams sent. Congratulations to U13G, U14G, U16G, U19G, U13B, U15B for their hard fought titles as National School Futsal Champions. I look forward to helping select teams to defend our titles, and win others during our 2016 campaign…..
I was on the full tour, with over 50 skilful futsal players, many from Toronto High School. I thought the commitment from coaching staff and the players was excellent and all concerned should be commended on a very successful venture. Against all odds my 15 NNSW Country boys took on the heavily favoured NSW City team with dogged determination and came up with a monumental victory. Congratulations to the boys, their parents, Cameron as coordinator, and George as CEO for providing this excellent sporting opportunity. I recommend this tournament for all local schools as Toronto HS will continue to support NNSW Futsal over the coming years!!

The 2015 National School Futsal Championships was an amazing experience for all competitors, from both my school and Northern NSW. As a newly trained Futsal Coach, I was given every opportunity to increase my knowledge and improve the girl’s skill and development throughout the tournament. A big thankyou has to go out to all the parents, managers & Executive that helped out during the tournament. Congratulations to all the successful teams from Northern NSW, I aim to return with BWS Umina and potentially collect more titles next year!!
