BFA’s futsal program is for kids between the ages of 9 to 12 years old. It applies a similar training philosophy and methodology used in Brazil by the youth futsal teams. Futsal will help football players to improve their creativity and decision-making skills, strengthen their confidence in the game, and develop precise ball control.
What is futsal?
Futsal, also known as indoor soccer, is a 5v5 fast-paced and action-packed game. It is the only official form of indoor soccer approved by FIFA. It is played on all the continents of the world with over 100 countries participating and 12 million players.
Brazil is a seven-time Futsal World Champion and most of its football players played futsal during their youth. Great football superstars such as Pelé, Zico, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Kaka, Neymar, and others grew up playing the game and credit futsal with developing their skills.
Why play futsal?
Players get a lot of time with the ball, many goals are scored and the game doesn’t have complex rules such as offside. It is an incredible team sport, where the player will benefit from learning ball control and precise passing, improve its technical abilities and decision making in a fun indoor environment. These skills are easily transferrable onto an outdoor pitch and both futsal and football pair seamlessly into creating an all-round star player.
