The Benefits of Futsal (fast-paced 5-a-side Football):
Futsal help players to develop technical skills and ability because it is played in tight spaces and unlike regular soccer, players can enjoy many more touches on the ball. Players often find themselves one-on-one against an opponent and quick decision making is important. The Futsal ball is heavier than a traditional soccer ball and smaller in size. It is designed to keep play on the ground and reduce bounce. The importance of keeping the ball helps develop fundamental skills that translate easily to regular soccer. So ball retention, quick and skilful play, and tactical awareness are a few of the benefits. Players also love the freedom the game offers them to be creative, to try new skills and to simply have fun!
