Hi, my name is Katie and I love to play futsal. Five years ago, I started playing at Manor Futsal Club and I have just finished my final year at Bootham Girls Futsal Club – York.
Even before hearing about futsal, from aged 10, I played as a goalkeeper in a grassroots football team. There were matches I would not touch the ball so didn’t feel I was involved in the game. Being a goalkeeper in futsal is a completely different experience. During futsal matches and tournaments I was always involved, whether it was going up for corners or being that extra option for my teammates to pass to. There is never a moment where a futsal goalkeeper is not involved in the game, which is why I love futsal.
Going forward, I will be helping out with the U10s and U12s at Bootham Futsal Club. It is a pleasure to be able to see these girls grow in confidence and just enjoying the game.
Later this year I am hoping to continue playing for York Futsal Ladies Team in the Women’s Northern Futsal League, and will soon be taking my FA Futsal Level 1 Coaching Badge.
