Futsal is a form of small-sided soccer (5 v 5) played on a hard surface (basketball court). It was developed in South America and is now played all over the world. Many of the world’s best soccer players grew up playing Futsal. A Futsal ball is smaller than a regular ball and is weighted so it does not bounce as much. Futsal improves coordination, foot skills, speed of play and more!
Many reasons. Here’s five:
All of these then translate to outdoor soccer. After a winter of playing futsal, players find their outdoor game has improved in so many ways.
The league begins the week of Dec 2 and will run through the end of February. We will have a two week break over Christmas/New Years. Exact days and locations of games will vary depending on gym space. Players will play 1-2 games per week. The first week will be practice sessions to get players up to speed on the rules of futsal and get used to playing inside. After that, the games begin!
Futsal league will have multiple divisions based on age (u8, u10, u12, etc.). Under 15 players (8th graders/high school) will train and also compete in the EOU Adult Futsal League.
Nearly all games will be during the week, so there will be minimal if any impact on your weekend activities. There will likely be occasional Saturday jamboree events where we will also play games against visiting towns (Boardman, Pendleton, Enterprise, etc.). These generally happen 1 time per month, and are optional.
No problem! We encourage multiple sport activities for players if schedules allow. In fact, many of our players also play basketball in the winter or do other activities. At times there may be conflicts, but as long as we know in advance, it is easy to work around.
For registered players interested in extra training, we will offer an additional 1-day training session per week. Players will be selected for inclusion into this program based on their love of the game, willingness to listen and learn, and their commitment. There is no charge for participation. More details on this will be forthcoming.
Players will receive Futsal League training jerseys/uniforms.
