Session 2 training runs for 8 weeks:

1/21, 1/28, 2/4, 2/11, 2/18, 2/25, 3/4, 3/11

  • Training starts early November 5th and runs through March 11th.
  • 18 weeks with a 1 hour training once a week with a Futsal NH trainer.
  • 1 game on the weekend (typically Saturdays anytime between the hours of noon and 8 pm) with similar travel to what we do now, Hudson, Nashua, etc.  The game will be coached by a volunteer coach, not a FutsalNH staff member.
  • Training groups will be about 15 players.  Team sizes will be smaller since futsal is a 5v5 game.
  • Training groups will be based on skill level, not necessarily age.  There are no tryouts.  This will be assessed by both LUSC coaches and the FutsalNH coaching staff.
  • This is for LUSC players only. (Fall '14 and/or Spring '15 seasons)
Why play Futsal?
Enormous potential for developing tactical skills...small sided games develop soccer players via:
1. ball mastery - 
  • there are no boards on a futsal court, this forces a player to learn to maintain possession and control of the ball using all parts of their foot. 
  • Keep the ball close and tight.
  • forces quick decisions (if you have only a second on a futsal court to decide imagine how much time a player will feel like they have once they return to outdoor!)
  • more responsible ball possession
2. speed of play
  • 5 v 5 - 1 goalie, 4 players
  • creativity is developed
  • a player will try new moves because of the amount of touches they get in a futsal game
  • in an average game, a player touches the ball over 200x more than an indoor soccer game via dribbling, passing, and shooting.
  • Futsal intensifies the game of soccer.
  • You can't hide on a futsal court.  All players need to be actively engaged at all times.
3. It's a lot of fun!
4. Did you know? In Brazil, soccer players don't touch a "soccer ball" until the age of 13? It's all futsal first in those primary years to better their skills (all mentioned above and then some) before they move on to the game of soccer!  Much like we have outdoor tennis courts there are outdoor Futsal courts all over Brazil!
5. Did you know? Our Boys U12 coach, Christian Nees, was a professional Futsal player in Brazil? He and Bruno Victal of Futsal NH were teammates.
