BRSC Youth Futsal: Training on a sustained surface!

Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced small sided football game that is widely played across the world and is officially recognized by both USSF and FIFA. The nature of the game places a large emphasis on technical skill and ability in situations of high pressure, and is subsequently an excellent breeding ground for football competencies that can be translated into the 11-a-side format of the game. Futsal is a five-a-side game, normally played on a flat indoor pitch with hockey sized goals and a size 4 ball with a reduced bounce. It is played to touchlines and all players are free to enter the penalty area and play the ball over head-height. Games are played to a running clock. There are a number of differences to our traditional version of small sided football, but the dominant elements are the absence of rebound boards and amendments in the laws that encourage and foster skillful, creative play above the physical contact that tends to be a feature of small sided games. The surface, ball, and rules create an emphasis on improvisation, creativity and technique as well as ball control and passing in small spaces.

Why play on a sustained surface?

Providing an opportunity for players to train and play on a “sustained” surface has numerous beneficial qualities that can contribute to a player’s accelerated development. From a periodizational aspect, futsal or indoor soccer can act as a cross training activity, which is paramount to a player’s athletic development. It can also greatly reduce the risk of injury by utilizing varied muscle groups while others are resting. Due to the quick intermittent bursts of speed, indoor soccer relies heavily on an anaerobic energy system. This creates an “ interval training” setting, which is an excellent way for soccer players to condition.
