Indiana Futsal is pleased to announce the new Goals for Indy program, which creates steel futsal goals for public courts in Central Indiana and is a partnership among several Indianapolis businesses. The goals are sourced, constructed, and finished here locally in Indianapolis.
“Part of our mission is to provide access to the game in underserved communities,” explains Indiana Futsal Director Justin Becht, “This program allows us to secure partnerships with local, family-owned organizations and nonprofits to help lower those costs and provide safe equipment.”
The raw materials are purchased from Warner Steel, a local and family owned metal supplier, by Indiana Futsal and put together by a welding cohort within RUCKUS.
RUCKUS Makerspace and Recycle Force, both CCIC tenants, have partnered up to create a hands on 10 week 40 hr Intro to welding program. A Certified Welding Inspector works closely with students to help support, educate and empower Recycle Force participants. The cohort focuses on elements of fabrication, team building, preparing for potential jobs and set personal goals.
Upon completion of the goals, they will be taken to Cunningham Quality Painting, a local and family owned powder coating facility, to be finished with a durable UV protected powder coat. They will be stored while a site for a new public court is chosen and then installed.
The first goals to be put together were on display inside RUCKUS Makerspace on Aug. 4, where the staff spent the evening having fun and sharing the sport of futsal with First Friday attendees.
