DTS 2017 FUTSAL Tournament
Once again the DTS organized the DTS Summer Futsal tournament. This year’s tournament which took place at the 7th October 2017 set up a record with 46 youth football teams and more than 350 players from all over Windhoek participating. Clubs and school teams came from Ramblers, SKW, ACFA, Falcons, Namutoni Primary School, Mandume Primary School, MH Greef Primary School and DTS.
Except for the youngest kids in age groups 7 and 8 who had their games at the grass field, the teams were playing Futsal in the DTS hall. Futsal slightly differs from soccer regarding main rules and game speed. Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced small sided football game, mainly played indoors, and is recognized by Fifa.
DTS is the pioneer in introducing Futsal in Namibia to the youth and hosted the DTS Youth Summer Cup for the third time in 2017
U7: DECKENBROCK FAMILY CUP
DTS EAGLES: After having received several Silver medals, the Eagles were more than motivated to win the Cup this time. They played a fantastic tournament with only one goal against them. In the end they won the gold medal and the cup sponsored by the Deckenbrock family.
DTS HAWKS: The Hawks won the silver medal in the B stream. They had equal points with the gold medalist and only lost by goal difference.
DTS HARRIERS: The Harriers couldn’t win a medal but they won the hearts of the audience with a great performance. Almost all of the kids (mostly 4 and 5 years old) played their first tournament and did a great job. Well done!

The U11 A team had it difficult from the first game in their group, primarily in the goal keeping department. The boys where very emotional having suffered defeats, but they managed to keep their heads high and played their hearts out during every single match. They have learned a great deal especially since most of them were on average at least one year younger than most opponents they have played. They couldnt make it into the play offs.
The U11B team fought hard as well and many of the players have kindled an ambitious nature, and thus have a lot more drive to not only play but also to try and compete regardless of who the opponents are. Although they couldn't in a game they showed ambitious football and had a lot of fun.

The U12 B Team winning only one match in the first round had to play for 7th and 8th position in their category.
