FUTSAL


Never heard of it? Is a variant of association football played on a smaller field mainly indoors and can be considered as a version of five-a-side football. Futsal is played between two teams of five players each, one of whom is the goalkeeper with unlimited substitutions permitted. Unlike some other forms of indoor football, the game is played on a hard court surface delimited by lines; walls or boards are not used. Futsal is also played with a smaller ball with less bounce than a regular football due to the surface of the field. The surface, ball and rules create an emphasis on improvisation, creativity and technique as well as ball control and passing in small spaces.

This is our most popular session so get yourself down to STFSC on Thursday evening 17.00-19.00 to show off your skills (or lack of them!) If you want to take it a bit further, we know have a Futsal club who will be helping out at these sessions.
