Futsal Games Program Block 3

So....... why play Futsal?

Futsal is a fabulous, fast attacking and skillful game which originated in Sotuh America. Futsal enables players to play in a smaller area on a synthetic surface with less team mates. Playing in this type of environment encourages players to become more technichally proficient by having more time on the ball thus having more touches than they may have in a game of football.

Having more time on the ball and allowing for more touches enhances a players ball control, first touch, desicision capeabilities and game intelligence ie. knowing where to be (positionally) and what to do (tactcially) in relation to where the ball is on the pitch in any moment of the game.

The rules of Futsal promote faster play, quicker descision making and an overall more enjoyable, attacking game! Some rules include 4 second restarts by passing the ball in to a team mate when the ball is out of play instead of a throw in, limited back passes to the goalkeeper which promotes attacking play Forward To The Goal! Playing with a smaller,heavier ball (Size 3 or 4 instead of a usual size 5) encourages players to keep the ball on the ground to dribble,pass,shoot or cross! Furthermore, playing on a synthetic surface meanst the ball moves faster which encourages faster descision making improving players intelligence as well as overall physical fitness..theres no hiding in futsal in a 5v5!

Futsal has aided the development of some of the worlds best football players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Leo Messi, Neymar,Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Pele, Maradonna and many many more!

Be a part of it!
