Futsal is an exciting, fast pace, small sided football game that originates from South America in the 1930’s. The nature of the game places a large emphasis on technical skill and ability in situations of high pressure and is subsequently an excellent complement for the 11-a-side format. Many of the top world class footballer’s played futsal in their youth and credit it with supporting their football development.
The sport is a great skills developer, demanding quick reflexes, fast thinking and pin point passing. It is an exciting game for children that is safe, simple and fun for them to play whilst improving technique, agility, decision making and their reaction to pressure. Children learn so much faster if they enjoy the game and spend a lot of time playing with the ball.
