The nationally acclaimed Futsal programme set to be delivered by AFC Fylde Community Foundation continues to gather momentum.

The Foundation have now announced a date for the official Open Evening to spread awareness about the innovative programme. It will take place on Tuesday 15 November at Churchills Restaurant, Mill Farm, between 6pm-8pm. This will be the first opportunity for all 16-19 year olds to find out everything there is to know about the Futsal programme.

The open evening will give people a chance to meet the team from AFC Fylde Community Foundation, ask questions and get a clear understanding of the benefits of the highly successful programme.

Following the recent launch of the Futsal programme, the Foundation has continued to move forward, ensuring everything is in place to guarantee the Fylde Coast delivery goes from strength to strength. Working in partnership with Virtual Learning UK (VLUK), the Foundation will begin to roll out the highly acclaimed programme in September 2017.

The Futsal programme is a two-year course that enables young participants to work towards academic qualifications whilst taking part in physical activity. During the course, students will be based full time at Mill Farm Sports Village and will divide their time between educational sessions and playing Futsal.

Futsal programme lead Ryan Vaughan is delighted the date for the open evening is now set in stone. He said: “The Futsal programme is something everybody at the Foundation is eager to get underway and I personally can’t wait for it to start.

“The open evening will be a great opportunity for everybody interested to come down, chat with the team at the Foundation and find out more information regarding the programme and see if it is something that’s right for them!”
