Virtus is delighted to launch the Global Challenge Series – a new series of online or virtual events to support opportunities for athletes to remain connected to their sport.

The Football/Futsal Challenge series is open to all Virtus athletes and we will be posting a new skill here every 2 weeks.

Skill 1 – Keep Up’s

THIS SKILL WILL TEST GOOD CONTROL, BALL MANIPULATION, BALANCE AND DECISION MAKING.

A demonstration of the skill can be viewed here.

  • Players need to keep the ball up in the air using feet, knees, thighs, chest and head (NOT hands) for one (1)
    minute
  • Total keep ups completed by the player within one minute without the ball touching the ground, another person
    or object will be counted
  • If control of the ball is lost by it touching any other object or the ground the player can continue but counting
    will start from ‘one’ again
  • The attempt should be filmed using a mobile phone or digital camera

Entries must be submitted using the online form above no later than 11.59pm (GMT) on 25th October 2020.
