MS BIFS SKAC FUTSAL CHAMPIONS 5

Welcome to 2015

2014 was full of so many great memories for the coaches and players of RSFA, we played a lot of tournament football and futile and grew throughout learning how to become better players and better coaches. “Sometimes we have to lose, to learn how to win,” this was something we had to be aware of early in our adventures, coming up against older, bigger and physically stronger teams. We have now however developed the character to ignore the oppositions size and play our football. We work hard for each other, we play attractive passing football, we are clinical when necessary and we never give up. We can only hope that 2015 will lead us to as many exciting adventures as 2014 did and that we continue to grow as players, teams and coaches on those adventures.

I would like to thank every coach, player, parent and supporter who has been a part of this journey and we look forward to sharing more great memories with you in 2015.

Below are a list of the tournaments we attended in 2014 and any resulting silverware.

Norway Cup 2014 – THANK YOU DNV.GL & ATM

We have returned safely from our trip to Norway where 11 children and 3 coaches enjoyed a magnificent tour. A further report will follow with details and in depth analysis from players, coaches, parents and fans.

Firstly however we would like to thank our 2 main sponsors for supporting our trip to the Norway Cup 2014

DNV.GL KOREA – www.dnv.co.kr – DNV.GL donated 4.5 Milionl KRW for the team, this supported the costs for accommodation, flights,  and excursions in Norway. Without this money we could not have done some of the amazing extra activities that we enjoyed in Oslo.

ATM – www.atmc.co.kr – ATM Robot Vision/Vehicle IT Innovation donated 2.5 Million KRW in cash and prizes, this supported new team uniforms, food and beverages and transfers in Oslo, again without this money we would have been unable to enjoy some of excellent sights of Oslo

Please show your admiration for both these companies in your local community as they have given so much to our club by supporting us on tour.

Many thanks

RSFA could be heading to Norway!

This is a preliminary plan to ask about your potential interest, support or availability for a trip to a European tournament during the summer vacation 2014.

Some of you will be in Europe already and some will be further afield.

Nothing has been planned yet and any plan will depend on interest, potential destinations are;

Norway Cup – http://www.norwaycup.no/en/

– Norway

We will most likely enter one COED/MIXED Team in 2 appropriate age categories, or two teams if we have enough numbers.

The trip is heavily subsidised by sponsors in Norway and hence the weeks accommodation, food, transport and entertainment is relatively inexpensive. Flight costs will obviously be the biggest expense. However it would be a great trip.

Please let me know your thoughts

Many thanks

Coach James
