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 .

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. 

Canadian Futsal  Coach Jaime Meza Learning from the masters  - Futsal Coaches get together to polish their delivering  , 
Picture of Fernando Ferretti with Jaime Meza during a two week long futsal coach course  addressed by Futsal Master Coach  Fernando Ferretti and associates  at the Krona Futsal Club in Brazil in 2015 .
copy and paste the link 

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 !!!
