This tournament is open to competitive boys and girls teams U10-U19 (High School). Space will be limited, register early! Futsal is the only form of indoor soccer endorsed by FIFA. It earned the status of FIFA’s official form of indoor soccer in the 1980s as it was recognized as a scaled-down version of outdoor soccer played indoors. It is a 5 v 5 small-sided game played on a hard surfaced, basketball sized court with a smaller, heavier low bounce ball. Futsal is played with touchline boundaries and without walls.
The sport is a great skill developer as it demands quick reflexes, fast-thinking, pin-point passing. The small, heavier futsal ball requires players to hone their ball-striking and ball-handling techniques. Great soccer superstars such as Pele, Zico, Ronaldo, Messi, Kaka, and Katia grew up playing the game and credit futsal with developing their skills.
