13 reg­is­ter for Five- A-side

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport -

“We want ev­ery club to have a trained coach and ad­min­is­tra­tor be­fore the start of next sea­son”.

The course is di­vided into the­o­ret­i­cal and prac­ti­cal lessons as well as an ex­am­i­na­tion set for Satur­day.

Among the par­tic­i­pants that reg­is­tered for the course by the end of yes­ter­day are Win­ston Banda, Zwelibanzi Zulu, Mnce­disi Maphosa, Mbon­geni Nde­bele, Chance Moyo, Luck­more Ny­athi, Nd­abez­inhle Ndlovu, Ku­dak­washe Pasi and Mthandazo Ndlovu.

De­spite be­ing founded five years ago, the South­ern Re­gion Five A-side League has failed to take off smoothly, with the league pro­gramme some­times be­ing aban­doned half­way through due to fi­nan­cial con­straints and lack of proper ad­min­is­tra­tive struc­tures.

The league, how­ever, hopes to have a smooth sail­ing 2017 sea­son and has be­gun reg­u­lar­is­ing its op­er­a­tions start­ing with the six-day course.

The South­ern Re­gion Five A-side League has 10 clubs un­der its um­brella, Fox FC, Kha­lany­oni, FC Amab­hubesi, Fog FC, Ny­oro United, Rome FC, Wangu Wangu, Binga United, Cow­dray Park and Nust.

Na­tion­ally, the game is run by the FUT­SAL and beach soc­cer com­mit­tee chair­man Fel­ton Ka­mambo.

World­wide Five A-side foot­ball is played on a smaller field and mainly in­doors. It is played be­tween two teams of five play­ers each, one of who is a goal­keeper, and un­lim­ited sub­sti­tu­tions are per­mit­ted.

Five A-side foot­ball is played with a smaller ball that has less bounce com­pared to a reg­u­lar foot­ball due to the sur­face of the field.

The sur­face, ball and rules cre­ate an em­pha­sis on im­pro­vi­sa­tion, cre­ativ­ity and tech­nique as well as ball con­trol and pass­ing in small spa­ces — @Fun­gaiMud­erere.
