South Central PA Futsal
Winter Session 1
Fall soccer season is here, which means it’s time to start planning for your winter programs. I am pleased to provide a new look to soccer in Central PA.
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.
This is the game that outdoor soccer players around the globe play to refine and maintain their control skills and touch. It is superior to walled soccer in terms of developing better skills and technique. In traditional American walled soccer, players regularly whack the ball (and sometimes their bodies) against the boards which promotes improper technique and too often rewards errant play. In futsal, players are constantly reminded to play the same quality control game that is required for success in the outdoor game.
Games will be played in Scotland, PA at the Winebrenner Theological Seminary Gym. 3583 Scotland Rd Scotland, PA 17254
We will play for 9 weeks beginning Saturday 11/22/13 and running through Saturday 1/17/14
