MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the Beasley FC is to provide a competitive futsal platform in Fort Wayne and surrounding areas that educates players on the benefits of playing futsal as an enhancement of today´s soccer developmental process. We view futsal as a powerful tool to assist in the growth of soccer skills and tactics that benefit the outdoor game. We believe in complete player development and continually push each individual to be the best version of himself/herself through a comprehensive and well-rounded soccer environment. By offering extra opportunities to play in meaningful competition with guidance from a professional staff, players will reach their potential in the game of soccer.

VISION

We believe Futsal is a great tool to help players with the “technical” aspect of their game. One simply needs to look towards great players who started at a young age on concrete courts instead of grass fields. Names such as Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Neymar (to name a few). These soccer icons believe futsal had a big impact on their careers by helping them to develop their technique. “The small playing area helped me improve my close control, and whenever I played futsal I felt free. If it wasn't for futsal, I wouldn't be the player I am today," says Portugal superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.  

Futsal offers many advantages that can then be translated to the 11v11 outdoor game. A smaller field allows more touches and more 1v1 challenges. In futsal, players are more ‘vulnerable’, which allows them to touch the ball 210% more often. With limited spaces, constant pressure and touch lines, improved ball control skill is required. With more ball touches and good ball control needed in a shorter amount of time, players need to play and think faster. And due to limited space, players must be creative in finding ways out through fakes, feints and skills. The action is continuous, so players are focused on continuing the play. With all players in non-stop-action mode, their understanding of the game is enhanced and that helps to develop their soccer IQ.  Most importantly, players enjoy the challenge of playing a fast-paced, fun-and-skill-oriented game.

Futsal Facts

It is exciting, many goals are scored and the game and players are touching the ball a lot more times during the game.
