Try something new, Try Futsal
Futsal is the format of Small Sided Football that is recognised and supported by FIFA and UEFA. There is a UEFA Futsal Cup for clubs, and UEFA Futsal Championships and FIFA World Championship for national teams.
Futsal is a fast, skillful and exciting small sided style of
football that is hugely beneficial in developing technical skills and
ability in high pressure situations. It's a superb game in its own right
but is also an excellent way to develop football competencies that can
be translated into the 11-a-side game.
With world heavyweights such as Pele, Messi, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo and
Xavi all singing the praises of futsal it is easy to see why it is seen
as a key means of developing players skills and ball control. Futsal is
different to standard five-a-side as it is played with a size 4 ball
with reduced bounce and with clear touchlines (no rebounds). This,
combined with the surface and rules create an emphasis on creativity,
control and technique.
Futsal is highly recommened for both junior and adult players
looking to develop their skills or just play an alternative type of
football. Give it a try - Get in touch with Herefordshire FA!
