. WHAT IS FUTSAL?? .

Futsal is a 5v5 version of Soccer played on a small sized court, with a smaller and heavier ball. For decades it has been a popular and loved sport mostly in South America and Southern Europe. These countries Include Argentina, Brazil, Portugal, and Spain who are considered to be some of the world's greatest soccer teams.

 

. BENEFITS OF FUTSAL! .

How many times have you seen children fall apart under pressure in a soccer game? How rare is it to see children making good decision when they don't have the ball? Futsal is beneficial in more than just these aspects. It focuses on how to deal with pressure in tight spaces. It focuses on close ball control, good tactical awareness, foot-skill development, close ball control, the importance of creating space, and- most importantly- having fun and being free enough to express oneself.

Quotes from some well-known players:

"As a little boy in Argentina, I played futsal on the streets and for my club. It was tremendous fun, and it really helped me to become who I am today." - Lionel Messi

"During my childhood in Portugal, all we played was futsal. The small playing area helped me improve my close control, and whenever I played futsal I felt free. If it wasn't for futsal, I wouldn't have been the player I am today." - Cristiano Ronaldo
