Nepal "Futsal Training Program". "Born To be New Player" Sport isn't just a good way to keep children's bodies healthy, but it also has psychological benefits and teaches them important life skills too. Organised sport has many psychological and social benefits for children – even more than the physical activity during play. We have a sports club, named Amartya Yuwa Club.  It's because we have realized that sports encourage kids to push their comfort boundaries and also allow them to build self-esteem as they learn to trust in their own abilities.

We  believe that it brings positive change in the society We are looking forward to conduct a "Futsal Training Program".
Futsal is the FIFA-recognised form of small-sided indoor football (the word is a contraction of the Spanish 'fútbol sala'). It is played between two teams who each have five players on the pitch at any one time, with rolling substitutes and a smaller ball than soccer that is harder and less bouncy.The small amount of space means players must have great technique and skill,
