Beasley Technical Academy*

*Intermediate to Advanced players only

The Beasley FC Staff has created an 8-week program designed to give players an extra boost to push them to the next level during the winter. While some players are taking a break from their club or school soccer, Beasley FC offers an opportunity for those so inclined to focus on continued development of their technical skills and training through small sided games and Futsal. Focusing on small-sided game play (1v1, 2v2…up to 5v5), this format along with Futsal will bring benefits such as repetitions, high demand, developing touch and more scoring opportunities. #playbonito #ginga

Futsal Facts

Futsal (ˈfo͝otsäl), is a modified form of soccer usually played in smaller hard surfaced court, with less players and smaller sized ball than soccer. It originated in Uruguay in 1930 and it was made popular by the Brazilians.

Futsal quickly develop skills required for soccer: – balance, motor ability, agility and co-ordination, ball mastery, accurate and quick passing and receiving, perception insight and awareness. It is exciting, many goals are scored and the game and players are touching the ball a lot more times during the game.

Quick Notes:

  • Allows players to frequently touch the ball, and encourages ball retention due to threat of immediate counter-atack
  • 260% more scoring attempts and 500% more goals scored
  • 135% more passes
  • 280% more dribbling/tricks
  • Encourages regaining possession of the ball as a productive, fun and rewarding part of the game (defending).
  • Maximizes active participation and minimizes inactivity and boredom.

What the greats say about Futsal

Pele: "Futsal was important in helping to develop my ball control, quick thinking, passing… also for dribbling, balance, concentration…Futsal was very, very important, no doubt."

Lionel Messi: "In Argentina, when I was a young boy, I used to play a lot of Futsal on the street and with Newell's Old Boys. It was a really fun game that's helped me a great deal."

Ronaldinho:
“Futsal is an extremely important way for kids to develop their skills and understanding of the game. My touch and my dribbling have come from playing Futsal”

Cristiano Ronaldo: "In Portugal, all we played growing up was Futsal. The smaller court helped my footwork skills, the nature of the game made me feel so free when I played. If it wasn't for Futsal, I would definitely not be the player I am today."
