What's Futsal

Futsal is FIFA's official indoor soccer game which is, essentially, a scaled down version of outdoor soccer played indoors. It is a small sided game (5v5) played on a smaller field (roughly basketball court sized) with a size 4 low bounce ball.  No cleats, only flat surfaced shoes. Fast and exciting game to learn. Futsal helps your outdoor game.   

What's sand soccer

Soccer played on SAND. It is more acrobatic than regular soccer.  Everything you do in the sand is 100% transferable to improve the grass game and skills.  Sand soccer is the perfect complement to the grass game as it is played in the air when trained correctly.   Adding Sand soccer training as part of the curriculum will expedite and certainly help recreational to advanced players reach another level in skills and development.  5v5 Games. Sand Socks are highly recommended or ankle socks.
