On the 11th December a group of Year 7 footballers went to Bournemouth University to have a fun filled and educational visit to try out a new sport that has recently been introduced to Ferndown Middle School. On the day the boys had a tour of the Bournemouth University which included a tour of the SportBU gym, Workout rooms and Sitting in a lecture theatre to feel and understand what it is like to go to university. They had the opportunity to experience a talk from one of AFC Bournemouth Strength and conditioning coaches as well. They then had the chance to be coached by Bournemouth University’s Futsal Coach Mr. Boland in a fun and creative session where the boys got to take part in a 20 minute full futsal match and being coached on their tactical and technical aspects of the game. The Year 7 Futsal players will put all these skills into practice on Friday where they will be involved in a Dorset Schools Competition organised by the University.
