Benefits of Futsal

Q: Why does Futsal not use walls ?
A: In traditional indoor soccer, players regularly use the wall to solve problems. This promotes bad habits and too often rewards errant play. Using a wall is a lost opportunity to work on improving skills for the outdoor game. Futsal forces players to rely on skill and creativity to solve problems rather than utilizing the wall as an option.

Q: Doesnt a wall help with shooting or passing ?
A: If a player wants to improve their shooting and passing, then it must be done under realistic circumstances. To improve any particular skill, the player must take into account visual cues to execute the skill correctly such as the location of the defender, what surface of the foot is appropriate for a certain situation, etc. A wall does not provide any of these visual cues.

Q: Why does our futsal league use a 4v4 or 5v5 format ?
A: The smaller game format allows players to be more involved in the game and have more touches on the ball. More skills development occurs in a smaller game format than in a larger game format.
