Indoor ball for all!
Futsal is a special variation of soccer/football that uses a smaller, heavier ball to play in an indoor/non-grass facility. The heavier ball keeps the play rolling smoothly on the floor and the gym space makes for a tightly spaced 5v5 match. The combination of the two requires play to be skill-based, increase the number of touches per player and create a fun, free-flowing environment for creative play to come alive! Many of the greatest players, ball-handlers, playmakers grew up playing futsal. It was popularized in Brazil, and became an immediate sports fixture in Missoula!
Our futsal tournament, the Heartbreaker Cup, will be the weekend of February 2-4!
Futsal Friday is a special program we offer players every winter. It is a 1.5hr session where we mix players into 5v5 teams for the night to play a small-sided futsal tournament. The sessions are a great way to have fun with friends and get touches on the ball on a Friday night! This is a supplemental program to team training during the winter, and is separate from the Girls’ Futsal League. Players can participate in both of these additional programs.
