About FC Copa Futsal Academy 
 

Welcome to the 2017-2018 FC Copa Futsal Academy. We are excited to embark upon another winter of training and developing players on the court as they further their soccer skills via the compelling game of Futsal. 
 
The goal of the Futsal Academy program is to develop your soccer skills to new heights via Futsal training and participation in the NJ Futsal State Cup and the US Futsal Northeast Regional. Futsal is the only FIFA recognized indoor soccer game, also known as “Five-a-Side”, it is played on an indoor hard-surface court with four field players and a goalkeeper. Futsal is credited world wide as the game which has developed technical skills in some of the world’s greatest soccer players.

The sport is a great skill developer as it demands quick reflexes, fast thinking, pin-point passing. The small, heavier futsal ball requires players to hone their ball-striking and ball handling technique. Great soccer superstars such as Pele, Zico, Ronaldo, Messi, Kaka and Katia grew up playing the game and credit futsal with developing their skills. At the FC Copa Futsal Academy, we have found that Futsal has helped shape our players technical proficiency, tactical understanding in small group settings, decision making in a fast paced environment, and ability to make quick key adjustments through out the course of a game. 

The FC Copa Futsal Academy has achieved tremendous competitive success in the Youth Futsal Arena at both the state and regional levels. Please find below our Futsal Academy Team accomplishments from the last two seasons.

WHAT IS FUTSAL?

Futsal is the only form of indoor soccer endorsed by FIFA. It earned the status of FIFA’s official form of indoor soccer in the 1980s as it was recognized as a scaled down version of outdoor soccer played indoors.

It is a 5 v 5 small-sided game played on a hard surfaced, basketball sized court with a smaller, heavier low bounce ball. Futsal is played with touchline boundaries and without walls.

This is the game that outdoor soccer players around the globe play to refine and maintain their control skills and touch. It is superior to walled soccer in terms of developing better skills and technique. In traditional American walled soccer, players regularly whack the ball (and sometimes their bodies) against the boards which promotes improper technique and too often rewards errant play. In futsal, players are constantly reminded to play the same quality control game that is required for success in the outdoor game.

Futsal is the only "Official form of Indoor Soccer" as approved by the  Internationale de Football Association FIFA. It is played in all the continents of the world by over 100 countries with 12 million players. Futsal is played on a gymnasium hard-wood floor or all-purpose sports flooring. The game does not require the use of expensive dasher boards, as do other versions of indoor soccer, therefore making it a very economical and safe sport.

You can find a link to the U.S. Futsal website here to learn more about the game.
