Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

COME one, come all and sign up for Dou­glas United Football Club’s off-sea­son com­pe­ti­tion Fut­sal tonight.

Also known as in­door soc­cer, Fut­sal is a pop­u­lar game played world­wide in­doors on a court sim­i­lar in size to net­ball with five-a-side, in­clud­ing the goalie and women are wel­come to come along and show up the males.

Sign up tonight is open to play­ers as young as un­der six through to open and if there is enough in­ter­est from the women, they will hold a sep­a­rate com­pe­ti­tion but if not, it will be a mixed com­pe­ti­tion.

DUFC trea­surer Jenny El­phin­stone said ev­ery­one is wel­come to come along, the sea­son is expected to run through un­til De­cem­ber ev­ery Thurs­day night at the Moss­man In­door Sports Cen­tre.

“Ex­pe­ri­ence is not nec­es­sary, the ju­nior pro­gram will have a compo- nent of train­ing with it and it’s fun, fast and gets you fit,” she said,.

“It’s some­thing to do in the wet sea­son and it main­tains skills for our play­ers and com­mence a pro­gram for par­tic­i­pa­tion to in­crease num­bers and pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity for ladies and girls to get in­volved in this sport, come and try and find out what it’s all about.”

While the club re­lo­cates to the in­door cen­tre for the Fut­sal sea­son, it gives the club an op­por­tu­nity to up­grade its field and club­house through a grant the club just re­ceived.

You need to wear run­ners for in­doors and bring along shin pads - if you do not have any the club has a cou­ple of spare shin-pads.

Sign- on is to­day at the Moss­man In­door Sports Cen­tre, ju­niors from 5 to 6pm and se­niors from 6.30pm to 7.30pm.
