Coached by qualified and experienced Futsal / soccer coaches, there are various age-specific programmes that has been designed so players will be able to learn the proper techniques on ball control, foot work and game play.



Personal coaching is available and provides an opportunity for individual players to improve specific skills and fitness goals.

From specific in-game drills to nutrition advice, working 1-on-1 with a personal coach allows for the most tailored advice and guidance.

We offer personal training for areas that players might be looking to improve on – for example their first touch, shooting, positioning, defending and game management.

Fire Mini Program (Ages 7-9)

The emphasis is on natural development (i.e. learning by PLAYING game). No coaching but organised FUN futsal exercises is the key to helping players build a love for the game.

Another highlight participants are exposed to basic rules of the game as well as tips and hints on building a Futsal/Football culture in a team.

The Skills Program’s focus is on building a solid foundation of Technical Skill and the development of the 4 Functional Game Skills:

  1. First touch (control)
  2. Striking the ball (passing/shooting)
  3. Running with the ball (dribbling/attacking space)
  4. 1-v-1 (creativity/problem-solving)

These four Core Skills make up 95% of the actions of any court/field player during a game of Futsal/Football, which is why it is critical to train these actions repeatedly so that the players will develop their ability to perform them more effectively during a game.

Fire Junior Program (Ages 10-14)

The Intermediate Program focuses on developing the more advanced concepts of tactical awareness, spatial perception and decision-making. Sessions are designed using a game-related approach to help the players apply functional game skills in a team setting.

In our Elite Program, players are trained to be better prepared for a more competitive environment. Training focuses on analytical thinking based on game play and match analysis. Match Conditioning is also another key focus of the program.
