Futsal is a fast-paced "flavor" of soccer played on a court that can help sharpen players' skills on the field.

LOCATION: St. Louis Gym, 7601 Burnet Rd. 
PARKING: Please park/drop off/pick up in the St. Louis Church parking lot, adjacent to the soccer field.
DATES: Saturdays, Jan. 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th
TIMES:  10AM-NOON - U11 and younger players
               NOON-2PM - U12 and older players

The game is played between two teams of five players each, one of whom is the goalkeeper. Unlimited substitutions are permitted. It is played on a hard court surface delimited by lines; walls or boards are not used. Futsal is also played with a smaller ball with less bounce than a regular soccer ball.

The surface, ball and rules create an emphasis on improvisation, creativity and technique as well as ball control and passing in small spaces.
Futsal is a great way to have fun and work on your skills and fitness during the winter break!
