T&C Futsal

Futsal is a fun, fast-paced and exciting small-sided soccer game that came from South America. Fabulous for youth soccer players, the game of Futsal develops technical skill and ability. In the tight spaces of the five-a-side game (5 players against 5 players), technique matters. Unlike outdoor soccer, players enjoy hundreds of touches on the ball on the court. In Futsal, players often find themselves one-on-one against an opponent and quick decision making is important. With the opposition constantly attacking, maintaining possession of the ball is critical and this helps develop great passing skills. World famous soccer professionals Pelé, Ronaldo, Messi, Kaká, Iniesta, Xavi and Fabregas all attribute Futsal to helping their performance on the soccer field.

ARE THERE WEEKLY PRACTICES IN THE LEAGUE?

No. T&C Futsal is designed not to be a burden on coaches and parents. It is an opportunity for the players to get some touches on the ball once a week in the off-season while getting some time to play with friends.
