Football school, school of life!

OUR STORY

Football school, school of life!
Felsina Calcio was created on May 10th, 2017 by 7 willing parents as an educational sports project aimed at combining sport and education to support personal growth.
Family, School, and Team: the perfect attacking trio to score with the ball of our future!

After the experience of our first summer camps, we began by taking over the via Calda facility for 13 years: a seven-a-side size pitch, which is then also divisible in two five-a-side pitches.

We enjoy saying that our first facility – the via Campa pitch where we began our journey – is our home, as well as the home of the whole Felsina Calcio family!
And a house must be welcoming, lively, full of light, cosy.

In only 2 months, thanks to a great deal of enthusiasm, sacrifice, and determination as well as to the help of many supporters, the playing field, locker rooms, benches, inner and outer fences and the green area have been completely remodelled. This was done with the goal of providing our kids with a modern training pitch and their families with a welcoming place where they could pass time and mingle.

In September, after only 4 months after opening, we started the enrolment process for the Felsina Calcio Football School’s very first season: which was a huge success!
150 members and 8 teams competing in local, provincial and interprovincial FIGC and UISP championships.

In October 2017 we had the honour of getting a visit from the major sports broadcaster SKY and of meeting the 1982 World Champion Beppe Bergomi.
This is our short story up until now.

We want to dream big, we want the best for our children and we will do anything to make our dream a reality one day!

OUR MISSION

A group of friends from the so-called civil society (professionals, managers, entrepreneurs) who share the experience of being parents, have created a non-profit amateur sports club: an “incredibly atypical” football school with the aim of being the pilot project in the landscape of Italian amateur football clubs.
The club’s main objective is being an element of support during the youth’s educational process, leading, through sports, to a healthy development.
Our beliefs are centred on the importance of focusing on the person, rather than on the athlete.
We love saying that our teams will play with a “3 points” scheme, also called an attacking trio: SCHOOL, FAMILY, and TEAM. We believe that a successful collaboration between SCHOOL, FAMILY, and TEAM could be the winning formula to better the educational journey of our children.

Along with training and athletic commitment, we intend to promote cultural, recreational, pedagogical, and social initiatives.
We want our coaches to be seen not only as trainers but also as teachers. Therefore, we’ll also focus our efforts on their professional formation.
We want to foster, as much as possible, a culture of merit, while being aware and put a special attention on the social needs around us.
As a matter of fact, we believe that our initiative could have a significant social value. We address the territory, by taking care of requalification. We address the institutions, by caring about sports, school, and family. We address the schools, by taking care of education. We address the church because we are inspired by Christian values, we want to rediscover Sunday school and help the less fortunate. We address the area’s organisations and businesses to convince them to help us in our goal of creating such important values.

For Felsina, the awareness of the value of health and the respect for such an incredible gift through the commitment to life, on the field and outside of it, is one of the messages that we’d love to pass to our children.
This is one of the reasons why we support the Ansabbio non-profit organisation, in accordance with our calling. For 25 years, this organisation has been taking care of children hospitalised at the Rizzoli Hospital in Bologna. We believe that the awareness of the value of health and the respect for such incredible gift shown, by committing to life on the pitch and outside of it, through all the tasks our life puts us through, is a value that must be thought to our children!
We want to achieve something special, we want to dream big. Because dreaming helps us have goals, and having goals helps us grow.

OUR COLOURS, OUR SYMBOL

Our colours are red and blue! We love these colours: they represent our own city, our memories, the legendary 1964 scudetto. Football as a passion: our symbol reflects the meaning of old-fashioned football with a ball made of leather marked by a prominent stitching. We want to be represented by old-time football’s values of healthy sportsmanship.

– Come pick them up where they accompanied them (entrance of the playing field) at the end of practice,

– Promptly contact the handlers of the Football School in case of tardiness, communicating to them the time necessary to manage their setback. In this case, a handler of the club will stay with the child until the arrival of the parent and /or of their representative to guarantee the safety of the child.

The Club is not responsible for any type of behaviour that does not follow the above-mentioned rules. Consequently, the parents who will not respect these rules will be responsible for the eventual risks that the pupil may encounter.

Art. 12 BEHAVIORAL RECOMMENDATIONS

Parents and all members are encouraged to take note of the following notes, which have the sole goal of guaranteeing a serious and correct conduction of the Club’s activities:

1) Members who have signed the annual Federal card with their parents cannot sign another card in the same sports season. The penalty is the referral to the Sports Justice Bodies of the Italian Football Federation and subsequent disciplinary actions.

3) Each member/footballer is obliged to always behave politely and be respectful of others, both through language and manners. Everybody must be greeted, scurrilous language shall not be used, and profanity is especially prohibited. Teammates and opponents must always be respected. Disrespectful actions and behaviour will be sanctioned.

They must accept every decision taken by the referee, even when they do not seem fair, avoiding admonitions and expulsions due to protests, which could be sanctioned by the Coach and by the Club. It should be pointed out that only the captain can communicate with the referee, and only with the proper manners.

7) Each member/footballer must always treat the opponent with the utmost respect, without ever underestimating them and always winning with modesty and losing with dignity.

8) In case of continued rude behaviour and / or of little commitment, any member/footballer can be temporarily or permanently removed from the team.

9) Academic performance is an integral part of the Felsina socio-educational and athletic project. The athlete must be a committed scholar and achieve results consistent with their parents’ expectations. In case this didn’t happen, the Club, in accordance with the parents, could decide to implement disciplinary measures. Academic performance is always put before the athletic and technical aspects and on this subject the Club is uncompromising.

10) Every activity offered by the Club (events, tournaments, matches, assemblies, etc.), must be attended, respected and honoured.

It will be discretion of the coach to call another player.

This applies to: convocations, positions, placement in different groups of the team, actual periods of play or any other matter related to the technical relationship between the Coaches and the members.
