2013 Futsal Event
Jan. 25, 2013
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - On Sunday, January 20 the Providence College women's soccer program hosted its second annual Futsal Event in the Peterson Recreation Center in Providence, R.I. The Friars welcomed 35 youth girls' soccer clubs to participate in the event ranging from U-9 to U-18.
The event focused on playing the game of soccer in the "Futsal Way." The idea was to create an enviornment that challenged the players' ability to think and make quick decisions. The restricted space forced the players to learn how to create space on and off of the ball. More importantly, the Futsal Event allowed for the girls to express themselves without the pressure of winning.
The Friar coaching staff and players received a variety of positive feedback from their event:
"The tournament was a great experience for the girls, every game had a high level of competition," said Sydney Stoll, the Assistant Girls Director of the Scorpions Soccer Club. "The facilities were fantastic and it was a very well managed tournament. We will be back next year!"
"The event once again was a fantastic experience for our players. The organization and professionalism allowed for a great day of futsal," said John Mark Andrade, President of the Bayside FC Bolts. "Thank you again for inviting our club and look forward to participating in next year's event."
" The Providence Futsal tournament was a great chance for our girls to get some mid-winter competition in a very competitive environment.," said Darren Marshall, the U9 and U12 Coordinator of the NEFC. "An excellently run event in the exceptional indoor facility at Providence College"
"The event was well organized with great fast paced action in a beautiful facility," said Joao Santos, the youth Head Coach of Lusitana F.C.
Providence's women's soccer program looks forward to hosting the Futsal Event in 2014 on the weekend prior to Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Friar clinic announcements and tournaments can be located on FRIARS.com.
