What is Futsal?

Futsal is played on hard court with a smaller ball which has less bounce. Unlike Indoor Soccer there are no walls or boards and the court is marked with lines. The game is played between two teams of five players each, one of whom is the goalkeeper. Unlimited substitutions are permitted.

The combination of the ball, hard surface and rules create an environment that emphasize technical skills such as ball control, passing, and ability to control the ball in tight and small spaces. The technical skill developed in Futsal easily translate to the outdoor game.

Football legends such as Pele, Zico, Socrates, Bebeto, Ronaldo and Neymar grew up playing the game and credit futsal with developing their skills.

Metros Futsal Academy

The Metros Futsal Academy's main goal is to provide an environment that is fun, challenging, and conducive to learning Futsal. The skills learned will easily translate to the outdoor game. The emphasis will be on technical skills such as ball control, passing, and the ability to control the ball in tight and small spaces. Competence in these skills will create a player that is more confident, more willing to take chances, and one that is more creative. Combining all these elements will result in a player that will enjoy the game even more.
