  • Summer Futsal and 5-A-Side

    The focus of the Summer Futsal (5-A-Side) clinic is to improve players’ overall technical ability within an active and high-paced form of play. The games will be played in a 5 v 5 format including goalkeepers indoors on a basketball court. The format allows players to maximize touches on the ball, enhance passing and receiving abilities in tight spaces, and a chance to create high volumes of chances to score.
    While skill development is key, players will also be able to benefit from the opportunity to compete over the course of the summer.
    Players will be organized by age.
    All games will be played with NRFA Coaches in supervision. The emphasis is on the technical development of the player, but the focus will be for the players to have FUN in an exciting environment.

“The wonderful thing about soccer is, a football is a perfectly round object, and it doesn’t make mistakes. The player using it makes mistakes. And the more you use it, the less mistakes you make.”
