BENEFITS OF FUTSAL FOR SOCCER
Futsal compresses soccer’s essential skills into a small box; it places players inside the deep practice zone, making and correcting errors, constantly generating solutions to vivid problems. Players touching the ball 600 percent more often learn far faster, without realizing it, than they would in the vast, bouncy expanse of the outdoor and indoor soccer (TURF) game.
Futsal promotes better technique and develops soccer skills more rapidly and better than any other type of indoor soccer for both offensive and defensive skills training. One reason lies in the math. Futsal players touch the ball far more often than soccer players—six times more often per minute, according to a Liverpool University study. The smaller, heavier ball demands and rewards more precise handling—as coaches point out, you can’t get out of a tight spot simply by booting the ball downfield.
The benefits of futsal include:
• improves players decision making skills
• provides players with more touches on the ball
• the heavier ball increases the power of players
• it develops the confidence in players to go 1v1 against their opponent
• it allows players to be creative in getting around their opposition
• it improves reaction time
If you want to stay fit, continue to work seriously and hard on your soccer skills and have an advantage over the rest of the competition going into the 2019 soccer season, make sure you put in the extra work over the off season AND FOR THIS, as the greatest in the sport of soccer say, THERE IS NO BETTER WAY TO IMPROVE SOCCER SKILLS THAN TO PLAY FUTSAL.
