Para nosotros, todos los que se unen a Alianza se convierten en familia y nuestra familia siempre permanece unida."

With ‘license to skill’, Blaby Bullets breaks English stereotype

Leia em Português

Blaby Bullets, located in the Leicester area, wants to show in the World Futsal Cup VI that one futsal club could put together different styles of the game.

“We aim to break free of traditional English stereotypes. Admiring Spanish structure and tactics, combined with Brazilian freedom, flair and creativity we aim to develop creative, technical and intelligent players,” said coach Ian Bannister.

One special phrase is highlighted always by Bannister and shows the principles of the club and the freedom that his athletes have when they have the ball in their feet’s: license to skill.

The club was founded in 2011 but had just soccer in the beginning. Futsal was added in 2013 as a crucial part of the player development pathway. Now the sport is very popular in the Leicester area, with 88 teams competing in all competitions from age Under10 to Under14 in the 2016/2017 season.

“The reason for the foundation of the club was promoting a love of the ball from a young age (individually and as a team) whilst encouraging creativity, decision making and a ‘license to skill’ has allowed all players the chance to maximize their development through regular soccer and futsal training and competition,” said Bannister

One big challenge ahead

Blaby Bullets won some tournaments in their home country including a championship at St. George’s Park, the home of the England national soccer team, this August. Showing their potential in a huge place was proof of their talent and their power in the country.

The next challenge is very big: World Futsal Cup VI, tournament that will be played in Blanes, Spain, this December, and have great teams from different countries. This will be the first international experience for the majority of the squad and they are very excited to travel and have unforgettable matches.

“World Futsal Cup VI is a fantastic opportunity for the Bullets squad to test ourselves against some of the best teams in the world,” said Bannister. “Furthermore, we intend to enjoy the whole experience, culture and the simple things like staying away together as a team. Some of our players have never even been abroad before.”

In preparation, the boys of Blaby Bullets have come together for futsal sessions, training games and team building days, including swimming, tennis and relaxing at a local leisure club. The plan is to compete well with freedom to impress the fans using intelligent, creative and skillful play against some of the best teams in the world.

Georgia futsal academy brings international talent to develop players

Two years ago, Jonathan Cueva opened the doors of what would become Rockport Indoor Soccer. Back then, the space was empty but what started as a vision of opening an indoor soccer facility turned into a dedicated futsal court where young players come to train.

Walking into Rockport Indoor Soccer, it's easy to see the care that Cueva spent in the details- from the concession stand to the penalty box, every detail was created to establish a free environment where players can come try their skill in fast-paced futsal games.

For the Georgia community, the facility has been a game-changer. Children have an alternative space where they can build community, learn new skills and develop constructively on and off the court. For the futsal community, the facility is a small win in the quest to bring the sport to the United States.

"Futsal still needs to grow," said Cueva. "We were at the World Futsal Championships watching Brazilian teams play and their movements and strategies were new for us. I want as many people, especially young children to see and share the game at its highest level."

This summer, Cueva has partnered with the LSA Sharks and USA Futsal to bring international talent to Rockport Indoor Soccer and do just that. Together, they will open Escorpion Futsal Academy, the first after school futsal academy in the state and they're brining in Toni Farreras to teach their players how the game is played.

For Farreras, the game has been his biggest love. From a young age, he showed a talent for developing players, having trained his first futsal team at the age of 14. Since then, he has coached players from the mighty FC Barcelona, Pineda F.S, Futsal Mataró and Canet F.S., among others.

His secret to developing champions is in his approach to coaching.

"My intention is to make you think from the first day. I do not want you to memorize anything, I want you to understand why things happen and only then improve your ability to make decisions on the court," explained Farreras. "I also want to convey my way of seeing this sport and how we can take it to our lives off the track. Everything has a connection."

Lanier Soccer Association will be also benefiting from Farreras’ training; He will be acting as the futsal academy’s Technical Director and educate our coaches in the art of futsal.

Escorpion Futsal Academy will kick off this January and children will be able to learn basic principles and absorb a bit of the coaching culture that has made teams in Spain a force to recon with. With eight practices per month, players will receive dedicated attention and enjoy the competitive advantage that comes from professional coaching.

Registration for the January sessions is open now. Click here for more information
