Goa Beach Soccer – Kick Starting the Beach Soccer Revolution
Goa has a rich history of beach soccer but the sport has been lacking a strong structure at all levels including competition, training, coaching and refereeing. There have been a few tournaments in the past but have focused only on a short term event. This is an opportune time to create a Beach Soccer movement that germinates from the grassroots and leads up to the success of Goa as a region at the elite level. The dream is to make Goa, a preferred destination for Beach Soccer in Asia. The relevance of the sport to tourism is very strong and through Beach Soccer, the aim is to provide positive impetus to tourism and profiling of the state. Project beaches as a cleaner place for health and fitness activities and fight against marine pollution.
