AIRC Kit Out Louletano Junior Futsal team

AIRC Kit Out Louletano Junior Futsal teamWhen Loulè GNR officer Frederico (Freddie) Fragoso approached Peter Hinze, the chair of Community Services at Almancil International Rotary Club (AIRC), for help in purchasing new kit for the Louletano Junior Futsal team, the club was delighted to help.  “This fitted in perfectly with our ethos which is to help our local community in any way that will benefit young, elderly or disadvantaged people” said AIRC President Mark Hulit. “Sport is an excellent way of encouraging young people to learn discipline, and team work whist at the same time having fun and getting exercise”.

Futsal is a fast indoor football game played between two teams of five players each, one of whom is the goalkeeper. Unlike some other forms of indoor football, the game is played on a hard court surface delineated by lines. Walls or boards are not used.  Whilst Futsal has not yet been included in the senior Olympics, in the summer of 2018 Futsal made its debut in the Summer Youth Olympics held in Buenos Aires.

The Loulé junior team whose ages range from 13 to 18 has only been playing together for a few weeks coached by Freddie, Gonçalo Silva and Daniel Cruz.

On Sunday the team, sporting their new kit played their first match against a team from Portimonense Futsal at the Sports Pavilion in Loule.  The match was attended by the President of the Câmara Municipal de Loulè Vitor Aleixo, Mark Hulit, Peter Hinze, AIRC club members and a large group of enthusiastic supporters.  Sadly ‘our’ team didn’t win but it was a valiant effort.

Freddie presented Peter Hinze with his very own Futsal shirt but he won’t be joining he team any time soon!
