AFC Lightning is offering an indoor/futsal soccer league this January 2020! 

The main focus of the winter futsal program is to improve players’ overall technical ability within an active and high-paced form of play. The games will be played in a 4v4 + goalkeeper format. This format allows players to maximize touches on the ball, enhance passing and receiving abilities in tight spaces, and a chance to create chances to score. Players will be organized by age and gender. All games will be played with IAFC professional coaches supervising. The program is open to players of all skill levels that want to improve in a fun and exciting environment.

Why play futsal?
Futsal is a fast-paced 5-a-side soccer game that is widely played across the world and is officially recognized by both USSF and FIFA. While it can be a sport in its own right, Futsal does not compete with mainstream soccer, but serves to support it. Futsal is widely considered a valuable tool in the development of young players to assist them in becoming more technically proficient in situations of high pressure.

Key skills and techniques used throughout Futsal games are all directly transferable to the outdoor game. Through Futsal, players have increased opportunity for: development of agility, balance, coordination and speed-enhancing comfort level with the soccer ball. Learning to make quick decisions while under pressure and in tight spaces, learning better spatial awareness, and improving passing, dribbling, turning, shooting and ball control while under pressure.
