Chester FC Community Trust is hosting a two-day Festive Futsal Camp at Blacon High School in January.
 

 
Last year’s event sold-out in record time and demand is again expected to be high for the indoor camp, which takes place on Thursday January 3rd and Friday January 4th.
 
The Chester FC Festive Futsal Camp allow players to develop an understanding of the sport and feature skills, drills, games and tournaments. The camp is for children aged 6-14 and runs from 10am until 4pm each day with an optional 9am early drop-off available for parents.
 
Youngsters will need a packed lunch, lots of drinks and trainers. Every child who attends will receive a certificate with medals for those who attend on both days.
 
The camp costs just £12.50 per day or only £20 for both days. The optional 9am early drop-off available is an additional £2.50 each day.
 
Futsal is a fast and exciting indoor version played across the world and is becoming more popular in the UK with The FA launching a new national Futsal Super League earlier this year.
 
Futsal helps develop close-control, quick thinking and different techniques to traditional football with superstars like Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo and Coutinho crediting the game with shaping the players they are today.
 
Places are limited and can now be booked via community@chesterfc.com, on 07512 355396 or online via Eventbrite for a small additional booking fee at community.chesterfc.com/book-online.
