Brazilian Touch – Futsal Training

Futsal is an indoor version of soccer. Its name is derived from the Portuguese; futebol de salao and the Spanish; futbol sala/de salon, which can be translated as “indoor soccer”.
Soccer greats such as Kaka, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Marta and Messi grew up playing Futsal, and credit it with developing their incredible skills. The game is played five-a-side on a basketball-size court, with a small, low-bounce ball.  This rapid-paced game demands lightning-fast reflexes, quick decision-making and pin-point passing. Futsal will improve the game and ability of any soccer player through its intense pace and rapid execution.  Whether the player’s aim is to increase skills, advance to a higher level in their club, make the High School team, or attain a goal even beyond that, our Brazilian Touch – Futsal program is the perfect complement to the regular club training sessions.

The final game of round-robin play was against Eclipse who had also won its first two matches.  Despite an early morning game, 2004 Premier came out strong and won the game 2-0 to win the bracket and earn a spot in the championship match against Team Elmhurst. 

In the final Team Chicago Academy-2004 Premier continued using the width and served great crosses into the box.  When Elmhurst adjusted and was closing the flanks, Team Chicago started playing early, diagonal through-balls to ´create break-aways.  Team Chicago finished three opportunities to win the championship match 3-0.  Shaye Smith and Maggie Leger combined for three shutouts on the weekend, only allowing one goal all tournament off a penalty kick.  The entire team did a great job of defending as a unit, possessing the ball, and serving good crosses into the box.  What a great start to the season.
