Futsal is a small-sided soccer game (5v5) with goalkeepers played on a hard surface the size of a basketball court. The format encourages players to develop their ability to cope under pressure and in tight spaces while learning to play quicker. Modified soccer balls with less bounce are used and the surface, ball, and rules create an emphasis on improvisation, creativity and technique as well as ball control and passing in small spaces. The game of Futsal provides many benefits for developing players including:
Improves decision-making and spacial awareness
Improves speed of play
Improves transition from Defense to Attack & Attack to Defense.
Increases contact with the ball and shots on goal
Favors a dynamic playing system and rotation of positions
