Positive Futsal Academy – Positive Futsal Academy was set up by owner and head coach James Bottomley to allow children in the Malvern and Worcester area access to a sport that has been played by children and adults alike across the world for many years. Futsal is used in most South American countries and European as the major development tool for young footballers, players in the majority of these countries will not play football until they are at least 10 years old. Futsal is used to allow them to feel comfortable with the ball at their feet, make quick decisions, gain confident ball manipulation skills and be comfortable in tight situations amongst many other benefits. Futsal is unique to football as a smaller heavier ball is used on a smooth hard playing surface usually indoors on a court much smaller than a traditional age related football pitch. Our sessions are run using the positive coaching method, they are fun, engaging, friendly and technically rewarding. The sessions so far have benefited many players that have shown accelerated development which they have transferred to there weekend football teams and used during their futsal sessions.
