Futsal is an exciting alternative for the players to continue developing their skills. Futsal is an indoor alternative to soccer with an emphasis on improvisation, creativity and technique. Futsal is a quick-paced, exciting form of indoor soccer, often played on a basketball court, with five players per side. The game is a sprint. Plays get set up instantaneously, with quick, controlled passes and close-range shots. Futsal is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. It is the only form of indoor soccer recognized by FIFA, (Federation Internationale de Football Association), the international governing body of soccer. Futsal discourages its players to just kick the ball, and there are no walls or boards to kick off from. Space on the court is at a premium so the ball has to be manipulated far more closely to the body. Effective movement of fellow team-mates is also essential for success. A Futsal ball is smaller and weighted, with less bounce than a regulation soccer ball therefore allowing for improved close control and first touch. Audax SC recognizes the unique skill-building benefits provided by the futsal format.
