Dominik Topolsky is an example of a student who has continued in 2015/16 to benefit from weekly individual training sessions with Bal Singh. Dominik (Dom) started his Futbol De Salao individual sessions at the age of seven and his initial 10 year development plan was to produce a Futbol De Salao player that could make the transition into an 11-A-Side competing at Champions League level. Dom joined Olympique Marseille in 2014, and is continuing his Individual Futbol De Salao sessions with Bal Singh

Dom participated in tournaments for Olympique Marseille in St Petersburg and Guadeloupe which Olympique Marseille won, after a weekend in Lyon, were he played the last Under-17 league match and Dom scored the winner from a free kick. A huge achievement as an Under-15 player representing Olympique Marseille at U-17 level and getting the winner too. He will stay at th French giants Olympique Marseille in the coming seasons as the club has a great academy with fantastic conditions and Dominik is enjoying his experience with them. He is one of the best students academically in his class which is very important and Dom appreciates and understands it is not just about the football development.
April, May and June saw Dominik represent his Country Slovakia in international Under-15 games. From a youngsters who could not speak a word of English when he first arrived at KFA Letchworth under the Head KFA elite program he can now speak three different languages including French, English and Slovakian and a little Punjabi which helped him integrate at the KFA Futsal Community group in Letchworth. He has had a busy end of season for both club and country competing for Slovakia Under-15s as an offensive midfield Number 10 against Finland and Poland. He got great reviews playing for his native Slovakia and will continue to work hard to further develop his skills. KFA students will also benefit from an interactive workshop session and exhibition launch of the KFA Futsal development League when he returns to the UK for an individual training camp with Bal Singh.
Doms father Julius Topolsky said, “Bal working with Dom from his nine years. Their work led Dom to Fulham later to Olympique Marseille and also to represent his country. KFA Letchworth organization operates in a sign of respect, no racism, sports discipline and learn and develop technical football skills. Dominik was lucky that he was able to go through this school – KFA Letchworth, because without these values today’s football already does not exist. Dominik speaks excellent English, French and learns Spanish and Italian. He is one of the best students in school and his marks are for us as parents a priority, however, football is the number one.”
Dominik said, “I miss KFA Letchworth, I miss England, I know that once I come back! I love France and Olympique Marseille. I feel I have improved and I have at Olympique Marseille the best conditions. I am proud that I can be in this club. With Bal I am in constant contact, our path is shared and thank him that he works with me that my dreams come true when I already dress in the national team jersey of my country, Slovakia. Our goals are the highest. I am looking forward to my individual Futbol De Salao skills training camp with Bal Singh, Kevin Ramasamey and Nav Dhalliwal. The technical individual sessions compliment my development with a pro and internation environment and will continue this development.”
Meanwhile Bal Singh added, “The same players who approached me to become their individual coach remain part of the individual support program and all the players have technically improved their skills and become better players at the levels they play. It’s an honour working with players who have a good work ethic and Dominik is a great example there is no substitute for hard work.”
