“I am eternally grateful and feel very lucky and fortunate that the London Futsal Star’s summer camp is running in our home town. Long may it continue. I think local authorities up and down the country should be pumping some money into schemes like this as the past 18 months has caused havoc with our children’s daily lives and life enjoyment. I feel bad for my son and he has working parents and extended family, for those children that don’t, they will need all the support they can get and this scheme is a great start.” (FOOTBALL CAMP)
” It has been so impressive to see how much progress the kids made with their technique, speed of thought and awareness. Even better, that all happened while they had so much fun and motivation because of the league format. They would jump at the chance to play in the LFS 3-a-side league anytime!”
“My son thinks Malik is wonderful and he has done such a good job of getting his attention and making it fun. All the kids are clearly having such a great time.” (BAMBINO CLASS)
“Malik is amazing. My son is super shy but warmed up to it all by the end. I know he loves it.” (BAMBINO CLASS).
“This kind of summer camp is exactly what our community needs! It’s amazing to have something that is so well organised and so much fun for the kids! Thank you so much to all the organisers of the Futsal Stars!”
“The coaching staff are friendly and approachable. They are very understanding when it comes to my autistic son’s needs, making him feel at ease and making feel like one of the group”.
“I have 2 children in the Futsal Star’s summer camp and they are absolutely loving it! They both like football in the park but I signed them both up for different reasons. My son finds it hard in new settings and surroundings but the coaches are so super friendly he hasn’t thought twice about it. My daughter is an outdoorsy and active girl, spending time indoors doesn’t always suit her. This camp is allowing her 4 hours of exercise for body and mind 3 times a week over the summer holiday.” (FOOTBALL CAMP)
London Futsal Stars entered their first futsal tournament and made history by coming back with the goods #futsaliscominghome
London Futsal Stars took part in the U11 North London Youth Futsal tournament on the 3rd of July 2021.
We entered 2 teams in the U11 age category which saw over 25 teams take part.
The 2 squads consisted of 16 players in total. 10 of these 16 were under 10’s!
We played some great stuff on the day and translated our work on the Futsal court onto the football pitch.
The boys were outstanding on the day, with one team winning the plate and the other team losing in the cup final.
A brilliant day for the club and the first tournament of many!!!

We are proud to announce that we are now affiliated with the Futsal Stars Foundation, a registered UK charity (no. 1194598).
The founder, Dr Miriam Bouchiba, created the foundation as a means to provide grants of financial assistance to young people from economically disadvantaged background to access futsal and football coaching courses.
“As a healthcare professional, I am in regular contact with young people from economically disadvantaged backgrounds and there is an abundance of research that shows these individuals are more susceptible to mental health issues. There is also research, in equal measure, that supports the mental and physical health benefits of regular participation in football and futsal. The foundation decided to affiliate with the London Futsal Stars because of the amazing work they are already doing in the local community. Mental health is an increasingly big issue amongst young people, due to increased social pressures and this can manifest in a number of ways, such as anxiety, depression etc. Together we feel a huge responsibility to protect children as much as possible from the latter and through sport we believe we can make a change to the lives of many young people with whom we work with.”
The most recent projects we have collaborated on have been the Youth Futsal 3-a-side league and the summer camp pending in East Sussex alongside Active Sussex. The foundation has provided sponsorship to many young people enabling them to participate in the hugely successful 3-a-side league in Islington. There is an upcoming Summer Holiday futsal camp in Newhaven, East Sussex for 5-11 yr olds. To find out more about our work and how you can help please contact Dr Bouchiba on email@example.com.
Read our recent feature in the Highgate and Hampstead Mums Directory. We are always trying to spread the word about our efforts in the community and have found the internet to be a great way to do it.
The internet has become a great way to spread your message to large numbers of people and also connect communities.
We are passionate about our North London community and using fustal and football coaching to support mental and physical well being of young people.
Through a combination of running, walking, sprinting and kicking when playing football and futsal, can bring physical benefits including increased stamina, improved cardiovascular health, reduced body fat, improved muscle strength and tone, increased bone strength and improved coordination. Through the release of endorphins when playing, football and futsal have also been shown to reduce anxiety, stress and the risk of depression.
Help us spread the word about the work we are doing in Highgate, Hampstead, Islington, Drayton Park, Camden and Stoke Newington. We would also love to hear from you about ideas on how to spread the word!

The London Futsal Stars players enjoyed a kick-about with a difference before the latest lockdown restrictions came into force
THE club motto is a simple one: “Better futsal players make better football players.” For coach Shaz Anwar, the goal now is getting that message out there to scores of kids across Camden and Islington. However, with a pandemic raging and grassroots sport continuing its forced hiatus, that will be no small feat.
