For the second consecutive year, orphan youth have formed an Orphans’ Future team to compete in the Ternopil regional Futsal League. In this way, the team popularizes futsal in the Ternopil region and in Ukraine, as well as promoting a healthy lifestyle among orphan youth. The competition is tough but the team receives many benefits from participating including physical fitness, working as a team, self discipline, and determined effect to archive good results (goals).
The general management and control of the competition is run by the Ternopil Regional Footbal Federation and only amateur Futsal teams from the Ternopil area are allowed to participate. There are thirteen teams and all games are held at the Sport Complex “Polytechnic” on weekends, 3 point are allocated for a win, 1 point for a drawn and none for a loss. Each game is quite intense and severe. Currently, at the midpoint of the competition, the Orphans’ future team has played 7 games, and won 5 points, taking a table ranking of 11th. The competition continues until March 2017.
We believe in our young team and thank those who give them encouragement and enthusiastically cheer them on.
Orphans’ Future on behalf of orphan youth sincerely thanks the WALO group from the Netherlands and local sport shop “Za Dynamo” in Ternopil for providing such opportunity and football uniforms for the team.
