THe FUTSAL 'LOW BOUNCE' BALL '

A specially designed, smaller, low bounce Futsal ball is used.

The low bounce Futsal ball spends more time on the floor which is excellent for the development of a young players skill, technique & close ball control. The Futsal ball's charateristics means a player has to use their skill & timing to find the 'sweet spot' rather than the ball’s bounce to propel it.

Quickly Builds Confidence, Technique, Skills & Understanding

Due to the size of the court & the number of players involved, players are constantly placed in situations where they must improvise and find solutions to the pressures of limited space. Players are literally forced to use fantastic close control & passing techniques, playing with their heads up and inventing skills, wonderful dribbles & feints to survive.

In Futsal you touch the ball nearly 8 times or 800% more than playing outdoor football. More opportunities on the ball quickly builds confidence, technique, skills & decision-making.
 
Futsal is not outdoor soccer. Futsal is more skill, technique,creativity & team play over raw phyiscal aggression prevalent in outdoor soccer. 'Charging into players' & slide tackling are NOT ALLOWED making a far safer & enjoyable sport to play.


Futsal players are more skillfull than outdoor soccer players as the sport demands skill, quick reflexes, fast thinking, pinpoint passing, constant movement where players learn to play all positions 'all over the court'. The speed of play is such that you are forced to make quicker technical and tactical decisions.
