FutsalCast Episode 5 Derek Smith School of Ginga

Derek Smith, co-founder of School of Ginga in Cincinnati, OH, brings his generous, knowledgeable, kid-like nature to the mic. Ginga has sent multiple players to the US Youth Futsal National Team to compete overseas and is a well-loved experience for seemingly everyone who sets foot in their trainings, no matter the level. How many teams do college recruiters pick up? (Hint: zero--they scout for players)

'Studies show it: the more fun and games we play as young people, the more we're willing to do the hard work later in life in our professional lives.' Derek convinces us on the power of fun.

Enjoy the show and thanks for listening!
