Hurricane Futsal is returning this Winter!!!
Winter 1 Session:
Games will be held at Concordia Seminary on Saturdays starting at 10:00, with 30mins between games for COVID Response Plan and procedures to allow teams to leave before other teams arrive.
The games will be Nov 14th, Nov 21st, Dec 5th, Dec 19th, Jan 2nd and Jan 9th. There are 3 Saturdays with no games in Winter I: Thanksgiving week, Nov 28th, then Concordia has another venue besides us on Dec 12th, and then Christmas week Dec 26th. This is a games only program, space for practicing is not currently available!
Hurricane Futsal with or without practicing still produces many touches on the ball and is a great program to build on your player's outdoor soccer skills and gain confidence in their foot skills.
What is Futsal?
Futsal is the only form of indoor soccer endorsed by FIFA. It earned the status of FIFA’s official form of indoor soccer in the 1980s as it was recognized as a scaled down version of outdoor soccer played indoors. It is a 5 v 5 small-sided game played on a hard surfaced, basketball sized court with a smaller, heavier low bounce ball. Futsal is played with touchline boundaries and without walls. Futsal has many benefits including:
- improves players decision making skills
- improves foot skills
- improves passing and receiving skills
- provides players with more touches on the ball
- it develops the confidence in players to go 1v1 against their opponent
- it allows players to be creative in getting around their opposition
- it improves reaction time
