The Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Indoor Facility is scheduled to open in late September at 1st & Havana. What is “Futsal?” Here is the explanation according to the Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer website:
Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced small-sided soccer game that is widely played across the world.
The nature of the game places a large emphasis on technical skill and ability in situations of high pressure, and is subsequently an excellent breeding ground for soccer competencies that can be translated into the 11-a-side format of the game.
Many of the top world class soccer players played Futsal in their youth and credit it with supporting their soccer development; players of the caliber of Pele, Zico, Ronaldinho, Kaka, Messi, and Ronaldo to name just a few legends.
Ronaldinho once stated that, “Futsal is an extremely important way for kids to develop their skills and understanding of the game.”
While traditional Futsal is played on a hard court surface, we decided on synthetic turf vs. hard court flooring for our fields for a few reasons.
