@bathcollege secures funding for women’s futsal team
Bath College is delighted to have been selected as one of thirty colleges to receive English Colleges FA Growth Funding to support the formation of a new women’s futsal team.
The college was chosen out of 100 applicants to receive the funding which will help establish a sustainable futsal team over the next 3 years, allowing new and existing students to participate and therefore creating a more inclusive extra-curricular offer.
The money will help provide qualified and licensed coaches, referees and kit to help the futsal team improve their skills and abilities, and give them a positive and enjoyable experience of futsal whilst studying at college.
Bath College is extremely passionate about ensuring their students are able to join a sporting community to keep them physically active and positively impact their mental wellbeing.
Shaun Mullen, who will be head of futsal provision, is a UEFA B licence futsal coach and FA Tutor.
Shaun reflected on how the funding would help the college by saying that this would: “Increase the participation rates among not just sports students but also the wider student community of the college. This will give students an opportunity in potentially a new sport to learn core values and skills and create a new social group within a team environment.”
