What's Futsal? The best soccer players in the world like Messi, Ronaldo, Suarez, Neymar, Pele, Maradona, and Zidane all played Futsal and credit Futsal for their exceptional early skill and technique development. Futsal puts an emphasis on improvisation, creativity, and technique as well as ball control and passing in small spaces. Futsal is the only form of indoor soccer endorsed by FIFA and all the major heads of US Soccer and FIFA declared Futsal is the way to go. Futsal is one of the fastest growing sports in the world! Children will develop their skills at an exponential rate. Once you experience futsal, you will see the reasons:

• more touches on the ball

• better foot skills

• more movement without the ball

• quick decisions

• technical speed of play

• high-scoring games

• constant excitement
