Futsal coaching


FC Sports and TSC United Players can take part in futsal training sessions at Burnage Academy led by our fully-qualified coaches.

Kids futsal coaching can help improve children's overall footballing skills and also helps them to learn more about working as a team and builds their self-confidence. The game itself is fast-paced and exciting, attributes that have led to it becoming popular across the world. It is focused on technical ability and skill and helps children learn how to cope with high pressure situations. The skills learnt not only help with performance during average 11-a-side football matches but in normal life as well.

Many of the biggest names in football enjoyed playing futsal when they were starting out. These include the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Fabregas, Xavi, Deco, Kaka, Ronaldinho, Zico and Pele, who said it was vital in helping him develop his balance, concentration, dribbling, passing, quick thinking and ball control.

Futsal features five players on each side and is usually played indoors using goals similar in size to those used in hockey. Matches are 40 minutes long and are played in two halves. Time-outs similar to those used in basketball games are allowed. All players can go into the penalty area and can play the ball above head height. The game has touchlines but there are no rebound boards. There is also a focus on creative play and footballing skills rather than on physical contact.

Futsal is recognised by FIFA and UEFA and the game, including the use of a size 4 ball with less bounce and the rules and surface, is designed to focus on technique, creativity and improvisation. It is also great at helping children develop ball control and hone their skills when it comes to small space passing.
