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.

We started 8 years ago with 5 teams.  This year we have 68 teams and a little over 700 players playing futsal.  The league has grown because the kids love playing the game.  It has grown becuase of all the hard work that parents and coaches have done to get the teams organized and the kids to the games.  I want to thank all of you for another successfull season.
