Samba has come early in Bermuda!


Samba has come early!

As the Summer comes to end and the Fall comes rolling in, for Footy Promotions, the fun has not stopped yet. They continue to offer exciting clinics for our young people interested in Futsal and Football alike. The President of Footy Promotions Vinzie Zuill has informed us @WeAreBermuda that Footy Force Futsal Academy will be hosting a clinic ‘The Samba Futsal Clinic’ this weekend at the Bermuda College starting Friday, October 3rd through to October 5th, 2014 open to boys and girls between the ages of 8-15years old.

We have been given the pleasure of announcing the arrival of Denison Cabral the President and Director of coaching at the Denison Cabral Futsal Academy and the Technical Director of the United States Futsal Federation who will be leading the coaching sessions over The Samba Clinic weekend.

Take a look at clips from the previous Samba Clinic with Coach Denison Cabral.

He began playing professional futsal in Brazil at the age of 15 for S.E.R. Sadia and Palmeiras Futsal Clubs and ventured to the United States in 1994. In the United States, Denison currently ranks 25th all-time in the history of indoor football in points. Kate Laukhart from the Denison Cabral Futsal Academy will also be traveling to assist with the clinic.

Denison Cabral said, “We are extremely excited for the opportunity to be in Bermuda once again for another clinic. Footy Force is today a very successful futsal academy and we are proud of them, we are happy for them, and from the parents to the players and staff it is a well-deserved success.

Coach Cabral holds Bermuda close to his heart even through all his travels, he sees potential here in our youth and continues to support youth development here on island through the partnership that Footy Promotions and Footy Force Futsal Academy has made. These are his kind words;

“Bermuda is my favorite place to visit in the world; the happiness and the beauty of this magical island with amazing people combined with incredible food and now some talented Futsal players is on our calendar to visit every year. We hope to have another great clinic and have the opportunity to share our passion and experience with the new Futsal generation in Bermuda.”

“We thank Footy Promotions, Footy Force Futsal Academy, and the Bermuda Futsal Federation for this opportunity, and DCFA is honored to be a part of the success of Futsal development in this country.”
