U8 and U10 teams signed up for CSL Futsal Blitzes

Our U8 and U10 teams will  again participate in this years CSL Futsal blitzes in the Sports Village (Old Tennis Village) on the model farm road.

Futsal is an ideal opportunity for U8s to U10s to improve their technical ability and It helps improve skill, composure, quick-thinking and rapid decision making.

From the end of October until the start of March the teams 2 hour futsal blitzes will be played on either saturday or sundays from 10.00am-12.00 noon or 12.15pm to 2.15pm on one of the two indoor pitches.

On average the teams will participate in a blitz once every 3 weeks. A €3 contribution is required from each player to cover the cost of the Sports Village and referees.

Billy and Frank will be in touch closer to the start with the schedule.

What is Futsal?

Futsal is the fastest growing sector in world soccer.

It is the official UEFA & FIFA version of 5-a-side soccer.

The name derives from the Spanish/Portugese phrases for indoor soccer, Futbol Sala and Futebol de Salao.

We participate in these competitions because:

  • It helps improve skill,composure,quick-thinking & rapid decision making.
  • Players are more involved in the game and get more touches of the ball.
  • Playing in tight spaces makes players, of all ability, think about movement and improves their close control and passing.
  • Futsal generates more opportunities to get shots on goal and is a unique and fun experience for younger players.

To date, the feedback from coaches,teams and parents has been very positive and is seconded by the numbers that have attended each blitz in the past.
