FUTSAL-Putting all the pieces of the game together

 

 

Rather than focus on just one skill at a time, immerse yourself in the game and learn from SSA’s top-flight staff who teach players while you play!

 

Futsal provides more opportunities for players to improve because, compared to a one-hour indoor game, you get 3 times the number of touches on the ball.  Just like an indoor league, however, players compete in games, while, maximizing their monetary investment through guided instruction from high quality coaches. Sign up your whole team and see the results.      

 

Futsal Details  

Futsal is more than just an indoor soccer game — It is the tool used by clubs around the world to develop great players.

Futsal is the only indoor soccer recognized by FIFA. Futsal is taking the country by storm as soccer players, coaches and clubs discover the unique and positive qualities of Futsal. It is a game played around the world and many of today’s Brazilian soccer stars began by playing Futsal.

Futsal is a small-sided game that is played on a small field about the size of a basketball court. The game is played with the touchline boundaries with no walls to bang the ball against. The ball is a special low bounce ball that is heavier and smaller than a regular soccer ball and it forces a player to use their skill rather than the ball’s bounce to propel it. Futsal is a skill game that develops the overall fundamentals of soccer. Players will develop quicker reflexes, faster thinking, and passing along with a better touch and technique.

Famous players around the world like Ronaldinho, Cristiano Ronaldo, Robinho, Juninho and many others honed their early foot skills while playing Brazilian Futsal.

Technical:
• Ball control in tight spaces
• Better passing skills
• Better dribbling skills

Tactical:
• Movement off the ball
