Futsal target schools

FIJI FA Futsal development officer Ronald Ram plans to organise a primary and secondary schools futsal league next year.

The former Fiji Futsal rep is currently conducting a two-week holiday clinic to help develop the five-a-side game.

He said introducing the league next year would help identify talented players.

"I'm pleased with the response from interested players during this clinic. I hope to introduce a futsal league at primary and secondary school level to help develop players from a very young age," he said.

The former Nasinu district player added Fiji could now develop its own specialised futsal players rather than rope in players from the full code.

On Monday, Ram taught the 25 primary and 12 secondary school participants the basics of futsal.
