I have had my son play and train at the venue and found the staff friendly and professional. The coach was great with the kids and they enjoy each session. Highly recommend Brisbane Central Futsal.

Can’t heap enough praise upon him. An exceptional rapport with the kids. His character and approach to coaching make the kids want to go along to training. He’s patient, considerate and great communicator. My youngest doesn’t want to yet play futsal but he loves going to training because of coach. That alone is great feedback.

Coach’s training is well structured, disciplined, has a set plan for each week and builds upon skills introduced in week prior. All while making it fun for the kids. They truly love him.  Importantly, he has also introduced a moral and ethical code kids should follow while playing futsal ie; Teaching respect, firstly for your teammate, your opposition, and the ref., thanking and shaking their hands at the end of a match and teaching them why you should respect them.

I’ve worked with and trained under a plethora of coaches in various sports at local and representative level and the coach is truly on par with the best of them. And because he is, coach’s name comes up in parents and kids conversations away from futsal and thus promotes the game and will surely build membership.Make sure he’s paid enough to ensure he sticks around. A great person to build a club around. Should market him to the schools.

Rather than simply coach “indoor football”, we teach Futsal-specific skills and techniques. Our players develop the unique skills required on the Futsal court, while simultaneously developing knowledge that translates to the full-sized game.


Fire Futsal Academy operates on a term-by-term basis, concurrent to the Queensland schools calendar. 

Fire Kindy Program (Ages 3-6)

Take part in play-based learning:

  • Get the kids excited about futsal & sports.
  • Be more engaged in physical activities.
  • Learn character building through sports.

Expand their physical abilities:

  • Improve on their cognitive skills.
  • Be more active and less connected to digital technology.

Build their confidence:

  • Coaches NEVER discourages but always on hand to support & acknowledge good efforts.
  • Positive reinforcement.

  • Encourage to be more inclusive.
  • Promotes friendship and teamwork.
  • Better communication and respect towards one another.

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.

Fire Youth Program (Ages 15 & up)

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.
