HFS Incorporated has now joined, with other clubs, to be a member of NNSW Futsal who are amalgamated to Australian Futsal Association ( Australia Biggest Futsal only organisation.)
Dear Supporter, (Coaches, managers, Committee personal and Players)
Second year with Australian Futsal Association and what a year .
Our numbers increased , our results at AFA Nationals were outstanding and more players than ever have been chosen to play in Australian teams. To all coaches , players and supporters well done and thank you for your support . We have proven to the rest of Australia of Futsal that politics have no place in our sport and all we care is about our members having and enjoying the game of Futsal.
As mentioned our clubs numbers did increase with club summer competition finishing over the next few weeks. Parents from under 6 onwards have stated how much fun their kids have had and what improvement has been seen to their overall game.
As for the elite players, our pathways- clinics, Academies, Premier Leagues and Super League did give us a great lead up to the Nationals, with state teams having the best season to date.
Under 12 NNSW City National Champions, Under 13 NNSW Central Coast National Champions ,Under 13 NNSW City Runners up, Under 14 NNSW Central Coast National Champions, Under 15 NNSW City semi-finalists, Under 16 Premiers and National Champions, (They and the men’s got nothing but praise from all other states) Youth semi Finalists and Men’s undefeated until Grand Finals when losing to a very good Victorian team 2-1.
A quick mention about our Under 14 Girls who did not win a game ( not part of any pathway at the moment ) but played with passion under very hot conditions. They tell me they can’t wait to next year to try again and our Women improved 100% in a very competitive field and who knows we may have a Women’s AMF World Cup representative from this NNSW Futsal team being selected.
I will in the next few weeks announce on facebook our first four or more Senior Men players to make the Australian team squad to train for final selections to play in the World Games (Second to the Olympics) and to be held in Columbia later this year. What a great achievement for these men and for Futsal in our region.
Once again thank you all for your support. Good Luck in selections and well done to all players and coaches. As for the future at this stage NOTHING CHANGES!!
We will still provide competitions at all our centres for both Club and Premier League teams and we will have a true NNSW State championships with the like of new clubs from North Coast, Lismore, Grafton, Coffs Harbour, Port Macquarie, Manning and our four regions competing with the ever growing number of NSW teams and we will have a state team in each age group go to Nationals and we will treat all players equally (outdoor players with non-outdoor players). NNSW Futsal will have it’s own web site up and running in the next few months .
We still have the state of the art court at Howzat and the biggest Super Futsal court in NNSW at Gateshead Sportsworld and great facilities and courts at Maitland and Broadmeadow Basketball Stadium and with the joining of other clubs to NNSW Futsal including our sister clubs Central Coast Futsal and Southern Cross Futsal from Central Coast and Manning Futsal from Taree and over the next few months the rest of the Northern state we will be in an even better position to offer all Futsal members the pathways they would like to have.
We will still provide the only School Futsal Program with Nationals.
We will still provide clinics and academies in school holiday. (See below)
We will have a junior, senior and social competition over winter, (See below)
I thank you very much for your continued support and especially those who have worked tirelessly over the last few months for club, state and nationals.
