2015 TPSC Indoor Soccer (Futsal) Starts This Weekend!

Tiburon Peninsula Soccer Club Futsal Program            

There is still room in the TPSC’s Recreational Winter Futsal Program for grades kindergarten through 4th grade.  For those of you who are new to the sport, Futsal is the official indoor sport of FIFA (soccer’s governing body).  Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced sport that has soccer skill development designed right into it.  With Futsal a player can’t help but improve a player’s:

  • Passing
  • Shooting
  • Dribbling
  • Defending
  • Overall team skills

People are always amazed at the great ball handling skills that the top South American soccer players display and often wonder where they learned it!  The answer is simple – they all played Futsal while growing up.

While Futsal was once South America’s best kept secret, it is now a full-blown international sport with some 120 countries playing the game worldwide.  The sport has already had five FIFA sponsored World Championships.  Futsal will also become part of the Olympic family during the next games.  In the United States, Futsal is a rapidly growing sport where some 42 states are affiliated in the United States Futsal Federation.  

Futsal works hand-in-hand with the outdoor soccer game by helping to develop and polish a player’s individual and team skills.  Futsal is played with a special low-bounce ball, necessitating players to use their skills, rather than the ball’s bounce to propel it. Most Futsal coaches concur that after a winter of Futsal, the individual and team skills of their players are vastly improved.  It’s a great game for anyone who wants to improve his or her skills.  It helps the recreational and competitive player alike.

Futsal is a fast and fun version of indoor soccer.
