Interested in a Weekend Futsal League?
MVSC is partnering with Marin Futsal League to create a weekend games program that will benefit all MVSC players. Teams will play in intra-Club games at Seminary in Mill Valley, inter-Club games in various southern Marin gyms, or a combination of both. For more details & registration, go to: MVSC Weekend Futsal League.
Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced sport that has skill development designed right into the game. A player can't help but improve their passing, shooting, dribbling, defending, and overall team skills. Just a few of the benefits:
- 5v5 format allows more time on the ball
- Fast pace, more shots and more time in transition
- Heavy ball designed for less bounce encourages passing, dribbling and close control
- Players must keep the ball within the lines, as in outdoor soccer
Futsal is a wonderful opportunity for all players to improve their ball skills, in a fun, fast-paced game.
What Do the Best Players in the World Say About Futsal?
Many of the top world class soccer players played futsal in their youth and credit it with supporting their development.
