FUTSAL CAMP

Organized in the spirit of spontaneous pick-up soccer, Futsal allows players to expand their game with free play, where the game itself is the teacher. Futsal is the indoor version of soccer. Learn more about techniques to excel in the sport. DATE: TIME: PLACE: FEE:

Monday - Friday (August 6 - 10) 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Palm View Community Center $268 per participant

What is Futsal? Organized in the spirit of spontaneous pick-up soccer, Futsal allows players to expand their game with free play, where the game itself is the teacher. Futsal is the indoor version of association football (soccer) that is officially sanctioned by football’s international governing body, the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA). Futsal is played between two teams of five players, one of which is the goalkeeper; in addition each team may have a number of substitutes. Unlike some other forms of indoor football, the field is delineated by lines, not nets or boards which the ball may be played off. The ball used tends to be heavier and therefore promotes better ball control and on the ground passing. Furthermore the smaller area of play forces players to improve their skills and reaction time to on the spot decision making. About City Futsal City Futsal was founded with the mission to promote the game of futsal for all ages and levels. With two generations of soccer involvement in the DFW area, a training staff with NCAA and US Futsal National Team experience, strong ties with one of the best clubs in Brazil and a burning passion for the game, City Futsal is dedicated to bringing you premier futsal training and competitive opportunities. It is the way we play indoor soccer

Similar to hockey in its formation and rules, this sport also incorporates some soccer strategies. The game is played on a hockey rink with two teams consisting of six players on each side. Similar to hockey and soccer, the object of the game is to score more goals than the opposing team. A player uses a stick (a shaft with a molded broom-shaped head) to maneuver a six-inch diameter ball up and down the ice. Instead of skates, players wear spongy-soled shoes to gain traction when running on the slippery surface.
