March break is a time to recharge for kids and this year Futbol Niagara was the place to be for meeting new friends, learning some new skills and just having fun kicking a ball around.
It was 5 days of activity at the Haig Bowl Arena for kids aged under 7 to Under 12. From 9 am to 12 pm, each day of the week featured a different theme to keep the kids engaged and entertained.
Parents that registered children early for the march break futsal camp, were able to receive a big discount which made them happy too!
On Monday this year, the kids had an easygoing, fun day when they could meet the coaches play some futsal games. Tuesday saw them get down to the business of fitness and skill. Along with a game on Wednesday, players practiced dribbling and passing and on Thursday they learned about positions of play, worked on speed and practiced passing. To close out the week, Friday was dedicated to putting all the skills together and playing the game.
Each camper also received his or her own water bottle from Futbol Niagara.
Every year there are some kids that want to play but parents need help with the fees. That’s why every year Futbol Niagara seeks out sponsors to pledge 50% of the fees. Futbol Niagara matches those donations and this year 8 lids were able to play regardless of their ability to pay.
Futsal at the new Harriet Tubman Public School on Henry Street is now listed as an activity in the city of St. Catharines’ Leisure Guide, there are men’s and women’s leagues as well as kid’s leagues.
Next year parents are advised to book a spot early. Futsal is really taking off and you don’t want to be disappointed.
