Don’t just take our word on the benefits of Futsal & the impact it can have on your son/daughter, have a read at some of the feedback we have had from the parents of kids that are involved with Joga.

My son has been involved with Joga for over a year now and he loves it. I’ll be honest and say it was initially to help with his development in football. However we very quickly realised this is not football, David and the coaches are doing a great job coaching the kids the difference between both. At Joga the kids play with a smile on their face, they get the chance to play against other academies not just in this country but all over Europe and that alone helps the kids develop not just technically but also sociably. Top academy

My son has been a regular attendee at Joga for over a year now, he absolutely loves the game of Futsal. David and John are both fantastic guys and coaches, it’s important to know that kids of all ages and abilities will be welcomed at Joga, it’s a safe, fun and DRY! environment for them to learn about this fantastic fast paced and tactical football based game. New skills, new friends and experiences that will last a life time! Thanks to everyone involved.

My son and daughter have both enjoyed rapid development through the techniques used by the Joga coaches.
We have experienced some amazing highs through Joga and their European adventures and cannot thank them enough. If you are looking to provide an opportunity for your child to develop technically and mentally then Joga Futsal is the only place to attend.

Fantastic environment to develop my sons skills & footwork. Joga Futbol has really complimented his footballing ability as the skills are easily transferable. David is a great coach. We’ve had the pleasure of him having an influence on my Marc’s coaching for many years & hope for many more

My son has only been to two training sessions but already is loving it. The coaches are excellent, making the sessions both fun and educational. Great to improve his game

Just wanting to say Ally is absolutely loving futsal with Colin. He has been home for over an hour and is still buzzing. He is always big smiles after a session and at his age that’s what it is all about. Thanks again

What’s so good about Futsal?

We asked our academy players why they like playing for Joga Futsal Academy
