Casper Soccer Club FUTSAL League
Futsal is a sport that is a derivative of soccer and played with five-man teams on a basketball style court with no walls and a smaller, low-bouncing ball.
requires a high rate of active participation and motor engagement on the
part of the players, which makes it an excellent means of developing
skills among children. It enables them to stay constantly involved in
the game – directly or indirectly – and build up the amount of time they
spend engaged in useful practice, which is why the sport is also
regarded as an excellent training tool for soccer.
We will be playing at the old YMCA gym, the entrance is on 15th street.
Court or athletic shoes, shin guards, white or grey t-shirt, and socks that cover your shin guards.
Futsal will be played during the winter months, late October to March. Keep checking back for the next sessions information.
Just watch Futsal players fight to keep the ball from crossing the touch line and you'll immediately begin to see how Futsal develops skill, control, and technique. A small field with lines puts players constantly under pressure from other players and out-of-play boundaries. Players must learn to settle the ball rapidly, chop sharply, shield effectively, pass quickly and move into space.
Futsal places a premium on ball control. There is no reward for errant passes because the other team gets the ball. There is no reward for errant shots because the other team gets the ball. There is no incentive to 'kick and run' because the field is too small and packed with players. Players with the ball must use proper technique to maintain control and must seek out other players in space. Players without the ball must move to 'real' space and must truly support their teammates.
