Intro to Futsal {Free Soccer Clinic} - July 18th Thursday Main Gym

Futsal is a fast paced, 5v5 soccer game that originated in South America and spread quickly to Europe. Played indoors on a hard court surface, futsal is a game where technique, craftiness and speedy decision-making is developed. The futsal ball is different than a regular soccer ball. It is a low bounce ball that forces players to play the ball on the ground more than in the air. Players often face 1v1 situations in tight spaces and need to use their skills to help their team keep the ball. The emphasis on possession helps players develop great passing skill and vision that translates directly to outdoor soccer. Many of the best players in the world began as kids playing futsal, such as Pele, Ronaldo and Messi.

Session 1: 1pm- 2pm Ages 5-6, Session 2: 2pm- 3pm Ages 7-9, Session 3: 3pm- 4pm Ages 10-12
