Welcome to “Futsal”


DID YOU KNOW?:  The sport of Futsal was created by YMCAs in South America in the 1930’s and1940’s.  

Futsal is a 5-on-5 version of soccer that is played indoors with a smaller ball and smaller goals.  This version of indoor soccer is brand new to our Downtown YMCA and to our entire YMCA of Central Florida association.  This is an exciting opportunity for kids who may be new to the sport of soccer, as they can thrive in our futsal league because it will be utilized as a developmental opportunity focused on skill development, ball control, and body awareness.  Children who have experience in soccer can also thrive in futsal as they further improve current skills and develop new ones.

Give this fun, indoor sport a try with your K-3rd graders!  Registration is currently open for our upcoming futsal season that will begin in November.
