Brookhaven FC Futsal

Commonly Asked Questions

BFC is moving indoors for the winter with its Futsal Program! The main focus of the winter futsal program is to improve players’ overall technical ability within an active and high-paced form of play. We will offer 2 programs:

  1. Futsal – This program is games only. The games will be played in a 4v4 or 5 v. 5 format including goalkeepers. The format allows players to maximize touches on the ball, enhance passing and receiving abilities in tight spaces, and a chance to create high volumes of chances to score. While skill development is key, players will also be able to benefit from the opportunity to compete over the course of seven weekends of futsal. Players will be organized by age and gender. All games will be played with BFC Professional Staff Coaches in supervision. The program is open to players of all skill levels that want to improve in a fun and exciting environment.
  2. Futsal Performance Training – This program is a combination of training and games. BFC coaches will lead players through technical drills followed by small-sided games as described above. Maximizing touches all the ball, building confidence with the ball, and learning new skills are the objectives.

Why Play Futsal?

Click Here for Futsal Rules

Futsal rewards the same basic skills, tactics and knowledge of the game as the 11v11 outdoor game.

Ball Touches In a statistical study comparing Futsal to indoor arena soccer with walls, players touch the ball 210% more often.

Ball Control With limited space, an out of bounds and constant opponent pressure, improved ball control skills and technique are required.

Speed of Play With limited space, constant opponent pressure and a 4 second restart rule players learn to play and think fast.

Mandatory Support Without a wall as a crutch, players must make supporting runs when their team-mates have the ball.

Continuity of Play Action is continuous so players are forced to continue the play instead of stopping and watching.

Knowledge With four court players and all the basic options of the outdoor game in non-stop action mode, players’ understanding of the game is enhanced.

Framing the Goal The goal and Penalty Area are a perfect size for narrowing the angle so teams learn to frame the goal to score goals.

Encouraged Learning FIFA’s Laws Of The Game of Futsal, encourage playing a skilled game by punishing all physical contact fouls.

Fun Players enjoy the challenge of playing a fast-paced-fun-skill-oriented game that test their abilities.

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

▪    Improving passing, dribbling, turning, shooting and ball control while under pressure
