Futsal is a 5-a-side version of soccer, usually played on an indoor pitch. This smaller scale makes it eminently suitable for kids, whether aiming to play futsal/soccer more professionally in the future, or just for fun.
Kids who participate in regular futsal classes can benefit from:
MORE BALL TIME
Futsal offers up to 6x more ball time as compared to traditional 11-1-side soccer. More contact with the ball =
more opportunities to practice technical skills like passing, ball control, feints, dribbling and running with the ball
BUILDING A SOLID FOUNDATION
The physical skills developed when playing a team sport like futsal build a solid foundation for branching out into other sports, especially football. The mental skills and values learnt are applicable in all aspects of life.
A SMALLER PITCH
Playing in a smaller pitch encourages players to hone skills that help them navigate tighter spaces, such as agility, creative thinking, quick decision making, calmness under pressure, and team strategy.
A SAFE PLACE TO BE PHYSICAL
Since futsal is an indoor, supervised sport, kids can be free to play, expend their energy, socialize, and have FUN without any outdoor hazards or physical safety concerns. Parents can rest easy knowing their kids are in safe hands.
