WELCOME TO SUSQUEHANNA VALLEY FUTSAL

 

 

In essence futsal is a 5v5 small sided soccer game played on a hard court with a deadened ball.  It is a fast game that rewards fast foot work and quick decision making.  There are many more touches per time played in futsal than there is in about any form of outdoor or indoor turf game that you will find out there.  It is soccer compressed in a small space and played at hyperspeed.  There is lots of scoring, lots of ball touches, and the game is fast paced...what is there not to like about it if you are a kid.  Futsal is the game that many of the best soccer players hailing from South America, Spain, and Portugal started with as youngsters and is often credited by them as helping to develope their incredible footskills.

 If you are still not sure if futsal is right for your team this winter give me a call and we can arrange a scrimmage so you can try it out.
