Why Futsal?

5 Reasons Why Your Child Should Play Futsal


1. Futsal is a great skill developer - The game demands quick reflexes, fast thinking, and pinpoint passing. Futsal uses a smaller, heavier, low bounce ball. Ground control and first touch are essential to success in the game. The game is played on a hard court so the ball travels much faster than on grass.
2. Futsal is the foundation of Superstars - Many of soccer’s greatest players like Messi, Pele, Ronaldo, Iniesta, and Neymar all grew up playing futsal and credit futsal with developing their skills. US Soccer now requires all Development Academy players to play futsal in the offseason.
3. Futsal is more technical less physical - Futsal rules encourage technical play and do not permit the aggressive physical play that soccer allows.
4. Futsal has more of everything that kids love - More shooting, more goals, more action! Players rotate positions throughout the game, so every player is 100% involved in every game.
5. Futsal is not soccer - The rules are different, the court is different, the ball is different. Players get a break from outdoor soccer, while still enhancing their soccer skills.
