QUESTION: Why does Futsal not use walls ?
ANSWER: 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.
QUESTION: Doesnt a wall help with shooting or passing ?
ANSWER: If a player wants to improve their shooting and passing, then it must be done under realistic circumstances. When you breakdown the process of improving any particular skill, the player must take into account various visual cues to execute the skill correctly. In the real game, a stationary target (the wall) rarely exists. To improve any skill, players must recognize the location of the defender, what surface of the foot is appropriate for a certain situation, reading the body language of opponents, etc. A wall does not provide any of these visual cues.
QUESTION: Why does our futsal league use a 3v3 or 4v4 game format ?
ANSWER: 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.
