Futsal Program

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 in 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.
