Futsal players from various clubs in Honiara’s domestic league are currently receiving off-season coaching and training from Futsal coach Victor Wai’ia.

The weekly sessions are taking place at the Multi-purpose hall every Thursday at 5pm and Wai’ai is keen on getting the players back on track for this year.

He says the program focuses on two main areas.

The first one is to teach and maintain basic Futsal training for the players, and the second is for the players to return back to their clubs and carry on with the knowledge learnt from the program.

Wai’ai said the players in the program have been selected form 32 clubs that played in last years Honiara Futsal league.

Meanwhile, the National Futsal Championships scheduled for March this year is gaining momentum with futsal players all around the country looking forward to the first ever nation- wide futsal event.

Futsal fans who have heard about the championship say this is great opportunity to witness futsal skills from the rural areas.

Wai’ai also commented on the championships saying it will certainly bring light to potential players from the provinces and their level of the game.

“So far all our national futsal players are all selected from Honiara”, Wai’ai said.

“The championship should provide an avenue to scout new talents and also give the opportunity for provincial teams to experience the level of futsal here in the capital”.
