Our futsal program

Futsal is the FIFA recognized form of small-sided indoor soccer (the word is a contraction of the Spanish 'fútbol sala'). It is played between two teams who each have five players on the court at any one time, with rolling substitutes and a smaller ball that is heavier and less bouncy than a traditional soccer ball (see What is futsal?).
