Our Futsal Development Programme re-launched in May 2018 under the guidance and management of our Futsal Head Coach, John O'Brien - John is going to bring us regular reviews & updates from our session on a Thursday evening at Edgebarrow Sports Centre as we look to grow participation in Futsal in Berkshire & the surrounding counties..
What is Futsal?
Since we have launched the Futsal Development Programme the big question I get is what exactly is Futsal? What I said to that is Futsal is similar to the likes of Rugby 7s and T20 cricket, meaning it’s a different version of the main game (Football, Rugby Union, Test Cricket) needing and developing different skills.
What are the benefits of Futsal to a Football player?
Futsal improves players decision making skills, provides players with more touches on the ball, develops confidence in players to go 1v1 against their opponent, improves reaction time and it allows players to be creative in getting around their opposition.
We have had 5 weeks of Futsal sessions and the group’s ability has grown and grown, each week we will be introducing more rules and developing their knowledge of Futsal further. The plan in September is to play other local Futsal teams whilst also working on specific Futsal tactics and training practices. Our long term plan is to take all of our players to go to watch an England Futsal match whilst also growing our current centre and setting up brand new centres across Berkshire & the surrounding counties..
If your son / daughter is aged 7 - 12 & wants to try our Futsal Development Programme, we offer a free two-week trial to all interested players.
