Brazilian Touch – Futsal Training

Futsal is an indoor version of soccer. Its name is derived from the Portuguese; futebol de salao and the Spanish; futbol sala/de salon, which can be translated as “indoor soccer”.

Soccer greats such as Kaka, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Marta and Messi grew up playing Futsal, and credit it with developing their incredible skills. The game is played five-a-side on a basketball-size court, with a small, low-bounce ball. This rapid-paced game demands lightning-fast reflexes, quick decision-making and pin-point passing. Futsal will improve the game and ability of any soccer player through its intense pace and rapid execution. Whether the player’s aim is to increase skills, advance to a higher level in their club, make the High School team, or attain a goal even beyond that, our Brazilian Touch – Futsal program is the perfect complement to the regular club training sessions.
