Who Should Be the Canadian Futsal Team Coach.  

copy and paste the above  link , it will lead you to the Canadian National Futsal Team Coach application forms  

The Canadian Soccer Association is in the process of selection it's futsal coaching staff for the upcoming  Concacaf qualifying berth for the 2016 Futsal  World Cup In Colombia.

Since there is no national futsal league in Canada , it is a difficult task for the Canadian Soccer Association  futsal committee chaired by Charlie Cuzzetto .

There are a few people in Canada with futsal knowledge of the game played on court .
From West Coast with 25 years futsal playing experience Dwayne George - Pe School Teacher ,  He is coaching futsal  at the Cowichan  Tribes for past 18 years . He played  futsal  for  Cowichan Eagle . Dwayne has a long history in futsal since it's stardom in Canada  - a dozen of international games under his belt , which includes, world cup in Italy and Australia . There is more Futsal players at the Cowichan Tribes been one of  them  Alec Johnnie - perhaps one one of the best futsal player produced in Canadian futsal History - Alec scored goals against Brazil and Paraguay - I do no know no that has done that -

Brazilian born  Geraldo Ferrari would be my pick ,  Ferrari played futsal in Brazil and coached futsal in Montreal and has been involved with soccer in Nova Scotia.

Also I would have the Colombian  born Jaime Meza as an assistant coach .

Jaime played good level of futsal back in his old country - Colombia Futsal and has been involved in the development of futsal in Saskatchewan and in Canada.

Kris Fernandes is one of the drive force of the continuing development  of futsal in Canada ,    and should be considered   for a position with the Canadian National Futsal  Team  along with Marcelo  (Minhoca)  Zuge as coaching advisor - of course there  are other applicants that are learning about the game of futsal , but are eager to take on  the job.

It is crucial that we have experienced futsal  coaching staff to represent Canada  in such a high profile event .

Also,  there are some old timers  , such as Canadian born and former  Canadian Soccer Association soccer player and former   futsal Canada coaches Ike Mackay- who captained Canada 8 Vs 3 US Futsal  - in the first North American Futsal meeting  . Les Malbon  and myself who have been with the game of futsal since it's stardom in Canada .

There are other names to consider,  but,  Geraldo Ferrari has the futsal knowledge,  expertise , experience,  and leadership  required to conduct an elite Canadian Futsal Team.

I know that there are good soccer/futsal players to form a Canadian Futsal Team to qualify Canada in the Concacaf region and represent well our country in Colombia.

Futsal Coaches  Jaime Meza and  Geraldo Ferrari during a Canadian Futsal Coaching Clinic 2014 - in Ontario - Coach Ferrari addressed futsal   clinic for  new coaches  based on the Brazilian school method of futsal  

Coach Ferrari  from Futsal to Soccer he knows it at all 
From Sao Paulo Brazil Geraldo Ferrari played and coach futsal in Brazil and now in Halifax ,Canada.

I love to win ! My last winning was at the Estado de Santa Catarina, Brazil - Beach Soccer Championships 2012 with the Embraed Beach Soccer Team 
Nothing but gold and the game MVP.
  If you wanna be a coach , you got to show what it takes , it is not just have a coaching ticket from a  couple weekend coaching clinic , you got to get a few lost and winning  games during the apprenticeship before be considered to coach a top elite team .  

You can not bring a futsal to play on grass or synthetic grass. Soccer coaches should not run soccer practice on hard surface with a soccer ball , that is due to injuries and insurance liability .
Here there is your application or visit the link above 

According to sources , It appears that CSA  has  a name picked from Canada , someone that   speaks French /Spanish and English   
We will see in January !!!

Soccer Canada History - 150 Years Soccer History Book of Memorable pictures by Les Jones

Futsal and Soccer Canada History by Les Jones 

Futsal' pioneer back in Nanaimo 
Nanaimo Daily News  Sports Writer Ross  Armour 

I am proud to have  brought  Futsal from Brazil to Canada in 1978  as well as  be part of the history of Futsal Canada as the founder and developer of the game   during three decades , have coached the first Canadian Futsal National Team representing Canada at the first appearance at a world cup of futsal held   in Spain 1985

Futsal got going back east of Canada, Bob Luft as pioneer in the City of London , Saint Thomas  and periphery . I recall that Bob Luft Called me requesting more information on the game of futsal as well as the rules of the game and soccer ball - I sent him a couple futsal ball .

 Led by Bob Luft Futsal started in Ontario
 Bob Luft sent me these picture way back in the late 80's
Futsal has been around for more than three decades in Canada , mostly of the players were from organized soccer clubs in their region of play

 Canada Futsal first appearance at the Brazilian Grand Prix 2007 led by Goalkeeper Roy Blanche the only Canadian on that team that is still continuing  the development of futsal in Canada in the Toronto City area , as well as , Roy Blanche  played  and coached  professional futsal in Asia.
Based on his dedication, experience and knowledge in futsal , Roy Blanche  should be highly considered  to be the Coach of  the Canadian National  Futsal Team , "or my assistant ! , so he can pick up some futsal  tips from the master"  !  
futsal Canada  grassroots  in 1980 
Who scored the First goal for Canada in a Futsal World Cup ? 
Joe Cuzzetto scored the first goal for Canada  in a Canadian Futsal in a world Cup  , that was  at  the 1985 Spain  Futsal World Cup - the goal was against the Spanish team  on the World Cup opening game . " the ball passed through  the Spanish goalkeeper legs Cuzzetto can brag about it for the rest of his life  -  because,  that goal  was a beauty and I was the coach . Canada was a newcomer and the only team under two digites against on the score board. I consider that a winning result and a great experience as the game was in its first stage of development in Canada. " to be more considered , I believe to be  the first Brazilian to coach  futsal to a foreign country at a futsal world cup .

The 1985 Spain Futsal World Cup  was not under FIFA umbrella  , so what ! It was the best futsal in the world  and Brazil beat Spain in the Final game in Madrid  - The event led the game to be part of FIFA and be part of Soccer Canada . I hope that sports writers get this straight and not try to change the  history of Futsal Canada 

Bottom Pic.  in Memory  of Dominic Mobilio 
Victor Montagliani now  Soccer Canada President  played futsal on the first professional soccer league in Canada organized by Carlos Mateus  in the Great Vancouver and Vancouver island of  British Columbia '

Vancouver 86ers Futsal team champions of the 1st professional futsal league held in British Columbia by Futsal Canada   - Carl Valentine, Dominico Mobilio, Dan Lenarduzzi. Steve Nash ..  were some of the team players . Charlie Cuzzetto team manager . Victor Montagliani ( top L)   went from Futsal Player to  President of Soccer Canada .
The legue game final was played at the The University of Vancouver Island - former Malaspina college . the game was televised by Shaw Cable - Ian Thorpe did the play by play and Les Malbon the commentator in the game that that went on the history of Futsal Canada .
That was the first battle that brought together futsal in Canada . 

I would like to cote that "the 1989  Fifa World Cup played in Holland , the Canadian Futsal team  led by Paul Dolan under the 3 meter pipes , was made up  with  veteran soccer players - kind off picked up team with    Bob Lenarduzzi   that never played organized futsal before" There was an invitation from Fifa organizer  to Soccer  Canada  to represent under CSA and  not Futsal Canada. Since 
Argentina declined to move to FIFA,  therefore, Argentina team was also made up with veterans and  amateur  soccer players   with no  futsal competition experience. 
- History has this things and the "wanna be" trying to get free ink . But. I am glad that - Les Jones contact me in Brazil to collaborate  in his book with the true history of Futsal in  Canada  .
