This is the academy’s second year and builds on the success and high levels of interest in 2016.

Sessions will be held under the following age group splits U12, U15, U18 boys and U12, U15, U18 girls and a specific goalkeeper session – dependant on numbers. (U12s can be 9/10/11 and 12-year-olds, U15s: 13/14/15-year-olds and 16/17/18-year-olds in the U18 group)

The program will be centred on core individual technical and tactical skills required to participate at the highest levels and will be oversighted by two of Australia’s highest qualified coaches, Sam Smith and Kristian Collins, who both currently hold an AFC level 2 license.

Note also that for those interested in continuing into the summer season with the club (and if selected), pre-season for the FNSW Premier League competition will commence in Term 3 and there are plans to again compete in the NSW State Championships in Sydney in early October. Additionally, the club is looking to arrange an away trip/tour during the winter for a number of teams. There will necessarily be additional costs for participation in any competitions.

Training sessions will be on either Friday or Sunday nights at Stromlo High. Please indicate preference in the form below.

Participating players will be supplied with a Boomerangs training sweater and a futsal ball. (Training shirts will also be available for purchase if players do not already have one).

F-League 2017

07/03/2017 – PUMA F-League Announcement

Football NSW wishes to announce that the PUMA F-League Competition will not be delivered by the governing body of the state for the 2017 season.

Football NSW conducted an application process in preparation for the 2017 competition and unfortunately, through this process, did not receive the required number of applications to deliver a viable competition consistent with the standards set in previous seasons

During the application process, Football NSW received feedback that the timing of the season is a challenge given the various football commitments taking place during this period and this may have been a determining factor in PUMA F-League Clubs electing not to apply for the 2017 season.

Football NSW will continue to engage with the Futsal community and fellow member federations in relation to the ongoing development of Futsal and specifically any demand for a viable National Futsal Competition in future seasons.

Football NSW greatly appreciates the assistance and support of the PUMA F-League Clubs and Officials since the Competition’s inception and is hopeful that the organisation can contribute to a National Futsal Competition in future seasons.


 

Review – FNSW PL1 Elimination Semi-Final Men

By virtue of finishing fourth on the season competition ladder, the Boomerangs men’s team qualified for the finals series of the Football NSW Premier League futsal competition and were drawn, in the first weekend of finals, in an elimination final against third-placed Enfield Rovers. The qualifying final saw minor premiers, Inner West Magic take on Dural Warriors.

The men’s matches topped off a big day of finals action held at the Dural futsal centre, with the qualifying finals being played on Court 1, and the elimination finals on Court 2. The match’s kick-off time was delayed by just over 30 minutes as three early games on the ‘elimination court’ had gone to overtime and some to penalties.

A strong team was selected from the Boomerangs men’s roster and given the shared head-to-head results of the regular season against the Rovers it was expected that a close match would ensue. Continue reading “Review – FNSW PL1 Elimination Semi-Final Men”

Preview – FNSW 16/17 PL1 Men’s Semi-Final

Saturday 18 February at 5:15pm, the Boomerangs men’s team will be up against the Enfield Rovers in the finals of the 16/17 Football NSW Premier League 1 competition. Considered the paramount competition in NSW for futsal, this match represents a terrific opportunity for the men’s team to make a mark upon the competition.

The competition ladder at the end of the season had the Boomerangs finish in fourth position on 17 points, ahead of Mountain Majik on goal difference alone. This weekend’s opponents, Enfield Rovers finished in third position on 22 points. The top two teams, Inner West Magic (34) and Dural Warriors (31) will battle out in the qualifying final for entry directly into the Grand Final.

Whilst the Boomerangs men’s team did not have as many wins this season as would have been desired, they consistently played very well against teams higher than them on the competition ladder. Indeed, having a season with only five losses from fourteen matches is a positive outcome. Against Minor Premiers Magic, the results included a draw (3-3) and a single goal defeat (1-2). Against Dural Warriors the lads managed a draw (3-3) in the first match of the season and a solid 4-1 win in the return match in Canberra. And against the Rovers, the honours were split at one win a piece, with a 1-6 loss away at Riverwood and a 4-3 victory at home.

The Boomers men know they have a tough challenge to progress in the final series, but have as good a track record as you could expect against these top teams throughout the season.

The match up against Enfield Rovers – led by veteran Lachlan Wright – is a good one and the speed and agility of the young Boomers is a significant advantage. The return of Michael Rinaudo to the roster this weekend will be a bonus, to add to the significant strength across the entire playing roster.

The men’s semi-final matches will be played concurrently at The Centre at Dural and will cap off what will be an entertaining first day of futsal finals for the PL1 competition for this season.  The lads are certainly up for the challenge and assuming a win, will be just as confident coming up against the loser of the Magic/Warriors qualifying final seven days later.

 

 

 

FNSW PL1 Round 14 Wrap

The final regular round of the 16/17 NSW Premier League futsal competition had the Boomers club travel to Wollongong to take on the South Coast Taipans club at the University of Wollongong.

The heatwave weather conditions forecast for the day forced Football NSW to implement their hot weather policy across all futsal games and all divisions, to cancel any unnecessary matches and to have all matches completed prior to the heat of the day kicking in. As such a rescheduled day of fixtures was advised on the Thursday prior, which had included the cancellation of games that had no impact on top four ladder positions. For the Boomerangs/Taipans fixtures, this included the 12 and 14 boys and the Open Women. Additionally, FNSW had cancelled all development and academy matches.

A hectic schedule of three-way discussions ensued in order to try and reinstate as many matches as possible, as Continue reading “FNSW PL1 Round 14 Wrap”

FNSW PL1 Round 13 Wrap

The penultimate round of the 16/17 NSW Premier League futsal competition had the Boomers club travel to Sydney to take on the Mountain Majik club at the Blacktown Leisure Centre.

Both the development/academy games and the competitive matches kicked off at 12.30pm and ran concurrently on separate courts. The Majik club has multiple junior teams allowing the 11 boys to play a match, the 11/12 girls to play two and the 10 boys, three matches against separate Majik opposition.

It was another day of disappointing results for the club – a constant theme across this PL1 season – with the only highlight in the important men’s match at the end of the day. All the other teams though continue to enjoy their futsal and put in a 100% effort into representing their club. Continue reading “FNSW PL1 Round 13 Wrap”
