ABYS presents -- Futsal in Boxborough -- Session #2 now enrolling

Futsal is the way the world plays indoor soccer. It is played on all continents in over 100 countries by more than 12 million players. Futsal is played on a basketball-size court without walls, and is played on a variety of surfaces. Without the walls, futsal is a GREAT SKILL-DEVELOPER, demanding quick reflexes, fast thinking, and pin-point passing. It is an exciting game for children as well as adults. Futsal is played with a special low bounce ball, requiring players to use their skills, rather than the ball’s bounce, to propel it. Players should have already developed a good level of skill and technique to play.

With 5 players on each team (GK and 4 outfield players), a maximum of 20 players can register for each session. Each session, players will be organized into ‘balanced’ teams, and each team will play two 12 minute fast paced games. When teams are not playing they will observe and receive coaching instruction.

This program is games only – no practice sessions

All Futsal in Boxborough games will be played at the Blanchard School Gym
