Futsal is High paced, energetic, fast flowing
Futsal is a high paced, energetic, intense, fast flowing game played 5v5 on a hard court surface without side walls. Futsal is played by more than 12 million people throughout 100 countries! ASA hosts one of the largest futsal leagues in the United States and is home to a nationally recognized Futsal ID program. The ID program boasts three National Championship teams! In addition to the league and ID program ASA offers Futsal Ball Mastery to provide supplementary training opportunities for kids looking to improve their technical skills.
How is Futsal Different than Soccer?
The quick pace (both literally on the court and in the short length of games) demands different skills and mental strengths than a 90 minute soccer game. These traits not only help kids on the court and the field, but in life. ASA’s Futsal ID program teaches kids:
- To respond to and overcome adversity and make adjustments in a short amount of time.
- To handle pressure (the court is small, defenders are always close, fans are loud—the environment can be exciting and tense).
- To be a good teammate. Games are quick and on court shifts can be short. Emotions have to be kept in check and support and encouragement for teammates is required.
