Futsal became available to FAHS students in 2015, when the school entered four teams into Central Futsal’s Secondary School’s competition. Futsal runs during Terms 1 and 4.
We currently have 3 teams that compete in the inter-school competition: Senior Boys’; Boys’ Development and a Social Team The teams play on a Friday afternoon in Palmerston North at the Arena 2. All these teams are well-supported by the teaching staff, who handle coaching and management duties.
The school is developing their resources for futsal, and use the small and large gym as a training facilities for the teams.
The futsal programme nominates students for Central Futsal Representative sides in March and we had 4 students placed in representative teams in 2015; one of which, was elevated to the ManawatÅ« men’s team in the National League.
The school has a close working relationship with Central Futsal to develop coaches and support the growth of the game in our region.
The futsal programme is part of our football programme, which runs a closed-group Facebook page entitled Feilding High School Football Programme. This Facebook page is used by students and parents who can request membership to access for daily notices, training programmes and upcoming fixtures and results.
