"The aims of Futsal is to motivate players in an environment that is conducive to learning. This mirrors what we expose our young people to here at Haringey Sixth Form College. I, as a sporting Principal/CEO, firmly believe the more pleasure kids derive from their participation in any activity (in this case futsal), the more they wish to play and practice on their own. It develops a good mind-set and is in line with our college values.
By bringing in the Under 16’s league and hosting it at our inspirational college, we hope that the instinct to play and learn rubs off on the young players.
If you treat people well, grab their affection and appreciation through sport then anything can be achieved.
Thanks to all the teams that are participating and good luck in the competition." - Russ Lawrance, Principal & CEO at Haringey Sixth Form College
25 H6 students have gained a football and/or futsal Level 1 coaching qualification and five of them are now qualified futsal referees.
