Futsal is a small-sided (5v5) indoor soccer game. The nature of the game places a large emphasis on technical skill and ability in situations of high pressure. Futsal is an excellent breeding ground for skill development and overall soccer competencies that can be translated into the more traditional outdoor game.
The concept for Palumbo's Winter In-House Futsal League is similar to our Club's Fall In-House Outdoor League, with a few minor adjustments. Details are:
This season brings fun "pickup" style games to finish up the year. There will be one technical training session per week by our travel team coaches and one game per week. Players attending game days will be divided into teams on-site by our referees to play 5v5 . You will not need to alert Palumbo of game days that you will be attending or missing. Come when you can and enjoy the fun!
