There’s a growing sport throughout Australia – the game of futsal. Futsal is similar to soccer, but it’s played with five players on each team. Instead of a grassy field, they play on an indoor hard court.
The game is the world’s fastest growing indoor sport. Futsal provides players with more touches on the ball, and the smaller, heavier ball demands and rewards more precise ball control. It improves players’ decision making skills, develops confidence in players, allows players to be more creative, and improves reaction time. Players touching the ball 600 per cent more often learn far faster, without even realising. It’s a fast-paced game full of fun and excitement. If players want to improve their soccer game, futsal is the tool to do so.
From the first week of October the junior futsal competitions will begin on Thursday nights at Iona College, and on Friday nights at Wellington Point. A Redlands and bayside venue on Monday and Tuesday nights will be announced soon. Competition age groups for boys and girls starts at U8 through to U16.
In mid-September, friendly games will begin for players and teams to warm-up for the competition. Why not get involved in futsal this summer?
