FUTSAL Academy - New Players Welcome

By Mark Raymond

Saturday Morning Futsal for boys & Girls 5-10 years

We are starting our new indoor Futsal academy as a way to find our new crop of players for our club.

FC Premier have been running a successful Saturday morning Academy and our latest crop of players have now joined teams and are representing our club. So we are now looking to recruit new players via our Saturday Futsal sessions.

Sessions are held at Great Barr Lesure Center, Aldridge Road, Great Barr 10am

What is Futsal
Futsal is the Brazilian form of 5 aside which is both fast paced and very skillful.

The nature of the game places a large emphasis on technical skill and ability in situations of high pressure, and is subsequently an excellent breeding ground for football competencies that can be translated into the 11-a-side format of the game.

Many of the top world class footballers played Futsal in their youth and credit it with supporting their footballing development; players of the calibre of Pele, Zico, Ronaldinho, Kaka, Lionel Messi to name but a few of the South American legends all played and enjoyed Futsal. But Futsal has not just helped produce South American football stars. On the European stage Cristiano Ronaldo, Deco, Xavi and Cesc Fabregas, amongst many others, have played Futsal to develop their skills.

“Futsal was important in helping to develop my ball control, quick thinking, passing….also for dribbling, balance, concentration…. Futsal was very, very important, no doubt.” –

Pele - FIFA World Cup Winner: 1958, 1962 & 1970

If you would like to reserve a place please get in touch.

Sessions are Saturday 10 am at Great Barr Leisure Center, Aldridge Road, Great Barr.
