FUTSAL. What is Futsal? It’s a 5-a-side game, normally played on a slightly larger pitch with hockey sized goals and a smaller ball with a reduced bounce. It is played to touchlines and all players are free to enter the penalty area and play the ball over head height.

Some professional players start out with Futsal to build fundamental skills. Brazilian players Ronaldinho, Robinho, Kaka, Rivaldo, Juninho and many more started out playing Futsal. In Brazil, the majority of children start out with Futsal rather than association football since it requires less space and many schools in the country do not have a field to play traditional association football.
"The young player should not be at all bothered with tactics, defending or positional elements. The focus should be on learning basic techniques. It should be ball, ball and more ball." Zico
"It's helped me a lot because in Futsal it's all short passes and on a football pitch it's totally different, you have more time to think. When I was little we always played Futsal and now it's easy to control the ball in short spaces, that's where it's helped me a lot."
