HAT CITY FUTSAL
Thank you to everyone that participated in the Hat City Futsal program. Over 100 players (U7-High School) participated in training as well as representing the club in friendlies and tournaments. We look forward to the program continuing to grow in 2017.
Futsal is the only "Official form of Indoor Soccer" as approved by the Federation Internationale de Football Association - FIFA. It is played in all the continents of the world by over 100 countries with 12 million players. Futsal is played on a gymnasium hard-wood or all-purpose sports flooring. The game does not require the use of expensive dasher boards, as do other versions of indoor soccer, therefore making it a very economical and safe sport.
The sport is a great skill developer as it demands quick reflexes, fast thinking, pin-point passing. The small, heavier futsal ball requires players to hone their ball-striking and ball handling technique. Great soccer superstars such as Pele, Zico, Ronaldo, Messi, Kaka and Katia grew up playing the game and credit futsal with developing their skills.
