Indoor Futsal Program 

We plan to offer our RCP Futsal Program to all our players/teams throughout the winter month.

What is Futsal? Futsal is a 5 v 5 game played on a small field with a hard surface with a ball that is designed to reduce bouncing. Futsal is a great skill developer, demanding quick reflexes, fast thinking and pin point passing. Futsal helps with player development by demanding precise ball control and technical skill, agility, lightening reflexes and quick decision making. As the balls have less bounce they tend to stay in play longer and promote close ball control and an improved speed of play. No score is recorded for futsal for any age groups.

For Futsal events, players must wear flat soled shoes – no cleats or turf shoes – basic sneakers work well.
