BVSC - Introduction to Futsal

We are extremely excited to introduce to our members, the wonderful game of Futsal!


What is Futsal?

Futsal is a unique, fast-paced indoor sport played across Canada and around the world (


Similar to football/soccer, it also shares certain characteristics with other team sports (basketball, water polo, handball), resulting in a game that is unique. Futsal requires a high rate of active participation and motor engagement on the part of the players, which makes it an excellent means of developing skills among children. It enables them to stay constantly involved in the game – directly or indirectly – and build up the amount of time they spend engaged in useful practice (or intense practice), which is why the sport is also regarded as an excellent training tool for football (

With only five players on each side and reduced size goals on a pitch almost eight times smaller than a conventional football pitch, the need for skillful, imaginative play with precise technical execution is paramount. Tight spaces, fast-moving action, quick decisions and end-to-end play with transitions are key to futsal success, making this a challenging but enjoyable format of football (
