Eagleclaw Futsal is a fun, fast-paced training program designed to develop modern, technically skilled youth soccer players through the game of futsal. Along the way players will learn the rules and tactics of the game, but fundamentally we are aiming to accelerate each players’ development in a game-like training environment where players are constantly playing close to the opponents goal. In this way, we develop attacking-minded players who demonstrate creativity and masterful control of the ball in small spaces.
Futsal is brilliant, 5 v 5 soccer game that originated in South America and spreak quickly to Europe. Played indoors on a hard court surface, futsal is a five-a-side game where technique, craftiness and speedy decision-making matters. The futsal ball is different than a regular soccer ball. It is a low bounce ball that forces players to play the ball on the ground more than in the air. Players ofter face 1 v 1 situations in tight spaces and need to use all of their abilities to help their team keep the ball. The emphasis on possession helps players develop great passing skill and vision that transates directly to outdoor soccer. All the best players in the world began as kids playing futsal, including Pele, Ronaldo, Messi, Kaka, Iniesta and Xavi.
The program curriculum is deeply influenced by Spanish futsal training, or futbol sala as it is called in Spain. Each weekly session is extremely fast paced, developing fundamental techniques critical to the game, including controlling the ball with the sole of the foot, quick passing and smart movement. Everything is done with the ball and usually through Spanish rondo training and small-sided games. Players quickly find themselves immersed in a variety of small-sided games and 5 v 5 scrimmages designed to get them playing and using their newly learned skills and tactics. In this way, we are able to create a learning environment that is highly instructional, competitive and fun, allowing player to learn the game by playing the game.
