Trio set for Australian futsal team’s tour of USA

Rising Ballarat futsal stars Patrick Harris, Angus Fraser and Jack Cleary have made their way to America as part of the Australian Futsal 10-11 years boys teams to tour USA.

After impressing at the 2017 National School Futsal Championships the Australian Futsal Association identified the trio and they now have a great opportunity to soak in everything an overseas trip has to offer.

The tour runs until July 21 and the boys will compete against some of the US’s best junior teams, playing in the US National Futsal Championships in California.

The tour will take a focus towards skill-work, game play, fitness and futsal awareness with competitive opposition during training, matches and a tournament.
