Baltic Futsal Marketing continues to present you those who are developing wonderful sport in the Baltic countries. Today we will talk about a specialized futsal school that is becoming more popular in Tallinn.
As we have already described in our introductory materials, futsal (five-a-side) has begun to quickly gain worldwide popularity since the end of the 20th century. The rapid change of actions on the court, the opportunity to show the best qualities in a limited space and playing time attracted a large number of naturally gifted football players to futsal. In Europe, the game took root immediately, thanks to the enthusiasm of people who saw the benefits of the new sport not only for adults, but also for children. Created in the courtyards, mini football moved to the equipped sport halls, which have become a home for thousands of children who wish to learn the technics of beautiful and effective football. And the usefulness of futsal for those who want to make a career in big football can hardly be overestimated: the ability to properly dispose of the ball and the situation that has arisen in a limited space and time is what determines the class of any player.
The first futsal (five-a-side) school of FC Cosmos was founded on September 8, 2014 in Estonia. The initiator of the project was the president of FC Cosmos, Boris Shipunov, who was the first to see the practical benefits of a flashing game for educating not only futsal but also football players. At the current stage, there are two main goals: to teach the first futsal players in Estonia, starting from childhood, and to provide additional promotion of futsal football in Estonia. Today the school has two age groups. The group of 2006/2007 has 12 athletes training under the guidance of an experienced coach Alexander Zavyalov. The latest achievements of the team are reaching the final of the Estonian Futsal Cup, which was postponed to a later date due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The team also has prize-winning places at tournaments in Estonia and Latvia. The group of 2008/2009 has over 20 young athletes. The coaches of this age group are Oleg Kaljurand and Stepan Chernousov. The team’s achievements include prizes in futsal tournaments in Lithuania and Estonia. Moreover, the team plays in the Estonian championship and various football tournaments during the summer.
And now I just have to announce about the new initiative of the president of FC Cosmos Boris Shipunov: it has been decided to launch several groups for 5-7 years old pupils by November. It is planned to start classes in the sports halls of educational schools in several districts of Tallinn at once, in order to reduce the travel time for parents and children. The work of the futsal school will be supervised by Stepan Chernousov, who is currently not only a practicing coach, but also the general manager of FC Cosmos with a corresponding set of tasks. So this article can also be considered an announcement about the recruitment of young futsal players to the school of FC Cosmos. For all inquiries, please call +372 5380 4118.
