Futsal is a high intensity, fast paced, dynamic, and enjoyable 5-a-side version of soccer that caters for both male and female participants. The only 5-a-side game that is officially recognized by FIFA and is one of the fastest growing sports in the world.
Futsal is played on a smaller, hard-court surface with a smaller, low bounce ball. Futsal is played with touchline boundaries and without walls. Without the use of walls, futsal is a great skill-developer, demanding quick reflexes, fast thinking, and pin-point passing. The smaller court size, all players are constantly involved and there is never a dull moment, as defense transforms to attack in a split second. The court size helps players develop close control, quick decision making and speed and agility.
Futsal is played between two teams of five players each, one of whom is the goalkeeper. Unlimited substitutions are permitted. The surface and rules create an emphasis on improvisation, creativity, technique and ball control and passing in small spaces.
