Our futsal league will be played on a hard court with futsal-size goals (2x3 meters). While we will not have all the exact elements of professional futsal, we will have what is necessary to develop; the hard court for fast play, the heavier ball so the game is played on the ground, and the small space with limited players so the game is in constant transition.
We will play fast futsal, encourage the quick movements on/off the ball, and praise creative solutions while introducing the basic rules/nuances of the futsal game.
Players will register as individuals and the coaching staff will assign them a team at each session. This gives us the opportunity to balance teams as we launch the league. Games will be at either the Robert Crown Gym or on Quad Indoors Sports’ new court.
Games may be 5v5 (futsal standard) or 3v3 based on the total number of registrants for like ages. Age groups/genders may be mixed based on total number of registrations.
Messi, Pele, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Neymar, Jr. all played futsal. They all praise the game’s speed of play and tight spaces for developing their ability on the ball, quick thinking, and dynamic movements.
“I played futsal growing up …In futsal you need to think quick and play quick, so it is easier for you when you move to normal football.” ~ Pele
“Futsal has been very important in my life. In developing my technique, quick thinking, [and] short movements. I think futsal is fundamental in a footballer’s career. It was very important in mine.” ~Neymar, Jr.
