Taking place Sunday April 22nd at Mullauna Secondary College Sports Centre in Mitcham
If you are interested in playing Futsal at the highest level, Melbourne Heart FC will be running open trials for this years Hummel F-League. Trials will be held this Sunday April 22. For more information and to register for trials, click on the link below.
Cobras Futsal Club and Melbourne Heart FC have teamed up to create an exciting new senior men’s team who will play in this year’s National F-League.
Although only 2 years old, Melbourne Heart FC shows a firm commitment to growing the club into a total football club. Cobras Futsal Club started 6 years ago and is one of the pioneer clubs in the Melbourne Futsal League. Cobras boast having the largest number of FFV registered participants, teams in the MFL and State representative players in 2011. Cobras Futsal Club’s core existence is the development of Futsal players and promoting of the sport Futsal. Cobras Futsal Club endeavours best club practise and organised a trip to Spain in 2011 for its players to train and play with the best in the world.
The partnership between Melbourne Heart FC and Cobras Futsal Club intends venturing Futsal in Australia to the next level.
It is the policy of both clubs to embrace the general community without prejudice. This is why we are holding trials for this year’s Futsal team. During the trials we will be looking for players who are capable of playing Futsal at the highest level. Games will be conducted with full international rules and court size which is very different to social Futsal currently played around Melbourne. We recognise that there is not much knowledge of how the game is played nor are there many competitions which replicate the game as it is played at the highest level. We are therefore offering to teach talented players in the right environment.
To make the most of your trial we will be looking for the following:
- Futsal Technique – Players must show good touch and the ability to control and move the ball in a Futsal way
- Awareness and Decision Making – Futsal is a team sport and players must be able to use and help their team mates
- Fast Combination Passing is the Key to Breaking Down Organised Defences. Players must be able to pass and move intelligently
- Finishing – All players must be confident in shooting at goal when the opportunity arises
- Defending – All players must defend when their team loses the ball. The main points about defence are:
- All players behind the line of the ball
- Ball carrier must be put under pressure so that they cannot pass to dangerous areas
- Second defender must cover for first but also be mindful of his own man
- Goalkeepers – Must show good reflexes, be willing to come off their line, be good with the ball at their feet. Shot stopping techniques are also important and very little diving. Most shots are also stopped with the feet and therefore must have the ability and flexibility to do this
