Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced small sided football game that is widely played across the world and is officially recognised by both UEFA and FIFA & we are very excited to be running our very own JCSS Futsal sessions with Shefford Saints.
The nature of the game places a large emphasis on technical skill and ability in situations of high pressure, and is subsequently an excellent breeding ground for football competencies that can be translated into the 11-a-side format of the game.
Many of the top world class footballers played Futsal in their youth and credit it with supporting their footballing development; players of the caliber of Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Santi Cazorla, David Silva to name but a few. The laws encourage skilful, creative play above the physical contact. The surface, ball and rules create an emphasis on improvisation, creativity and technique as well as ball control and passing in small spaces.
