Futsal develops the same basic techniques, skills, game tactics and knowledge as traditional Soccer does. Improved ball control technique and skills are required in Futsal, due to limited space, defined touchlines and constant opponent pressure.
Speed of Play
Constant opponent pressure and a 4 second restart rule helps to develop better game vision, fast thinking quicker reactions and generally more intelligent players. The smooth playing surface also creates a naturally faster game.
Players will touch the ball more often, they will pass more, shoot more and score more goals. They will also have more pressure from opponents than in regular soccer. This will in turn build the players confidence and speed in every situation for every type of soccer played.
Moving off ball
Without a wall or rebound boards to aid in the escape from tight situations and high pressure opponents, players learn to make quick passes and supporting runs. The tight space places a premium on the players ball control, movement, timing and passing accuracy.
Having less players on the court combined with the speed of the game and pressure, the players will need to fully participate and remain 100% focused. The game naturally forces constant adjustment and decision making.
Futsal is a fast paced, fun, skill-oriented game that tests the players abilities at every level, whilst developing all-around individual technique. It is a bigger challenger, with more opportunities to think, decide, pass, shoot, tackle, block defend and attack. Learning is FUN !
