Sarnia FC
Celebrating 24 years of futsal in 2014/15!!

Futsal is played between two teams of five players, one of whom is the goalkeeper and up to five substitutes per team. The game is played on a hard court surface delimited by lines; walls or boards are not used. Futsal is also played with a smaller ball with less bounce than a regulation football.
 
The game is much faster than conventional soccer, and allows players to further their skill development. The rules create an emphasis on improvisation, creativity and technique as well as ball control and passing in small spaces.

The futsal ball is made to reduce bounce by 30%. This builds great confidence in tight spaces when rapid passes are being issued repeatedly. Interestingly, that same property which makes the ball easy to receive makes it more difficult to strike. It is heavier and players rapidly get acquainted with the merits of bending the knee, turning the hips, and striking the ball firmly to propel it. Repeated touches on the ball eventually produce a motion which, when transplanted outdoors with a high bounce ball, translates into a firmer and proportionately longer pass appropriate for the big field.

Indoor soccer shoes are highly recommended over conventional court shoes and they can be purchased at a reasonable price at most of Sarnia's sport shoe stores.  The same shin pads used in outdoor soccer can also be used for futsal.

For any further questions, please contact the Futsal Director (see link below).
