Futsal

Futsal - Tue Mar 5 has been cancelled due to a school function

Please note, there is no published 'schedule' per se.  Players registered for Tuesdays at 6pm, will be 6pm each week.  Similarly, Tuesdays at 8pm are 8pm each week.


Why Futsal?

1. More touches. The average players gets 3 times as many touches in a Futsal match compared to an outdoor football match. With fewer players, smaller space, and an emphasis on keeping the ball on the ground you will get way more touches. This means you will have more time on the ball, make more decisions, be more involved, and gain more experience in a shorter period of time.

2. Quicker decision making. Because of the nature of the game you will be forced to make quicker decisions under pressure. Instead You learn how to remain calm and composed while making better decisions more often, more consistently at a higher speed of play. This will enhance your individual development.

3. More 1v1 situations. Futsal exposes you to more 1v1 situations. You will become more comfortable taking players on and keeping possession of the ball. But you will also find yourself in more 1v1 defending situations. Futsal emphasizes transitional play, so every player gets challenged to play both ways.

4. Encourages creativity. Tight spaces and small nets will force you to find creative ways to break down defences and score on aggressive goalkeepers. You will have to use your technical skills but also your creativity to become more unpredictable and effective.
