4 v 4 Futsal League
Back for year TWO… at the YMCA….. Games are fast-paced, with players receiving more touches and are constantly placed in demanding decision making, limited space situations. Because the sport is a great skill developer, requiring quick reflexes, fast thinking, and pinpoint passing, it is an exciting game for everyone!
*Futsal is officially approved by FIFA and Football Australia (FA) who form the official governing bodies for the sport.
- Under pressure play encourages quick and creative decision making
- Teaches tactical awareness
- Soccer alternative, played in the off-season
- Abundance of ball touches
- Lots of fun, and high scoring!
