What is Futsal?


What is FUTSAL?


Futsal is a modified form of soccer that is played with five players per team (one of which is a goalkeeper); and it​ is played on a basketball size field (typically indoors).



Flying substitution is used; substitutions are unlimited. Unlike regular soccer or some other forms of indoor soccer, Futsal is played on a hard-court surface defined by lines; walls or boards are not used. Futsal is also played with a smaller ball with less bounce than a regular soccer ball.


Futsal is a self-teaching game. Players are constantly put in situations where they must pass, receive, dribble and move, while under pressure, in a confined space.





Why Play Futsal?


Futsal is a FUN fast paced sport that will hone the key qualities of a soccer player better than any other indoor format and these benefits are transferrable to the outside game. In fact, two very important soccer components are:(1) having good technique, i.e. foot-skills; and (2)developing a creative, tactical mind, or speed of play.
