ACEHFOOTBALL.net - Satoe Atjeh Futsal Academy is quite active in bringing this sport "originating" from Uruguay to life. Futsal was popularized in Montevideo, Uruguay in 1930, by Juan Carlos Ceriani, increasingly growing in Rencong land.
It is just, minimal official tournaments are held. Even, coaching courses can still be counted on the fingers. Moreover, the goalkeeping coach course.
Departing from these conditions, Satoe Atjeh became a pioneer by regularly holding the training. Even, currently underway a course for futsal goalkeeper coaches up to 4 Next March.
On Sunday (28/3/2021) then the opening of activities was held in the hall of the Venezuela Indonesian Polytechnic Campus (Poliven), Jln Bandara Sultan Iskandar Muda KM 12 Cot Seruy, Kec. Wish Jaya, Aceh Besar.
Why this course was held by Satoe Atjeh. The following are the results of the reporter's interview Aceh Football, Fadli with reporters RRI Banda Aceh. The following is the excerpt:
What underpins Satoe Atjeh made this training?
Because so far the Aceh Futsal Association has never held a goalkeeper training. but if other training exists. Since there is an association until now there has been no specific goalkeeper training. Therefore, Satoe Atjeh took the initiative to bring in a national goalkeeper coach, Ade Lesmana to train, Futsal goalkeeper coaches throughout Aceh.
Is there no licensed goalkeeper coach like Ade Lesmana in Aceh??
There is no goalkeeping coach yet, but there are many national licensed trainers. But for goalkeeper coaches, no one has a license.
What targets were achieved with this training?
At least when this activity is finished, they have the basis to train children who will become futsal goalkeepers in Aceh in the future. At least they have basic material to train goalkeepers.
What are the expectations for the participants of this training?
We hope that all participants will follow it thoroughly, and can absorb all the material presented by Ade Lesmana. After all, he is the coach of the Futsal National Team. So, participants must be really serious about this activity. If they're not serious, It is unfortunate, because you rarely get the opportunity to take part in goalkeeping trainer training in Aceh.
What are your suggestions so that Futsal is increasingly developing in Aceh?
We hope there will be academies or futsal schools throughout Aceh. other than that, There is also a need for an official tournament held by each district futsal association starting from the Age 10, 13, 16, 19 to U-20. That way the opportunity to produce reliable futsal athletes in Aceh. So that in the future in Aceh will be born futsal athletes who are reliable and capable of becoming national players.
So far, there hasn't been an academy?
So far in Aceh there have been futsal academies. But, the number is still small. We hope that in the future it can develop even more.
Ideally, how many academies are suitable?
Ideally every district, city exists 10-12 academy. Later, we can create a kind of competition or regional championship for the age groups for each age group 10, 13, 16, or U-19
Anywhere now academy?
Academies have been born in several academies, like Banda Aceh, Sabang, Pidie, Singkil, Subulussalam. It's just not evenly distributed throughout Aceh. Then, This competition officially also has not been officially held by the government.
How has the development of Futsal in Aceh recently been?
During a pandemic, indeed tournaments are quite a bit. But, now it's starting to beat again. Hopefully in the future we can take part in the U-20 Championship tournament, National Championship and other tournaments, so that at the XXI PON year 2024, Aceh Futsal can perform and win medals.
