Futsal is a fast-paced version of soccer played with a weighted ball on a hard wood floor with 4 players and a goalkeeper.

Our staff have been taught and take great pride in encouraging, motivating, and supporting our young athletes as they develop through the program. The Futsal program is predominantly made up of small-sided games following a warm-up with the ball. Its primary focus is on individual ball manipulation to help players in 1v1 situations.
