Winter Futsal

Program Information

If our players are exposed to the actual game of Futsal and, in the early stages coaching is kept to a minimum, then very quickly they will develop a “feel” for the game. These players will also enjoy the Futsal experience so much more as this approach becomes more about playing than formal coaching. Once players see Futsal as a real option for their future development then they will look for more information from the coach. Coaching within this program will ideally be structured so that no more than 25% of the total session time is taken up by pure technical delivery on behalf of the coach, and the remainder is allocated to playing the game.
Teams will play 5v5 with subs if needed

Requirements: Please bring indoor shoes that are different from the ones used to walk into the school, water, and shin guards.

Benefits of Futsal

  • Players touch the ball up to 210% more than playing indoor soccer with walls
  • Presents many opportunities to score, with limited space, out-of-bounds, constant pressure and ball skills constantly improve.
  • Maximizes active participation due to 5v5 nature, action is continuous, so players have no time to stop and watch
  • Encourages regaining possession of the ball as a method of defending
  • Players enjoy the fast-paced, skill-orientated game that tests their abilities, allowing the game to be the teacher
  • An increase of 35% in the number of passes
  • An increase of 260% in the number of shooting attempts
  • An increase of 500% in the number of goals scored
  • An increase of 225% in the number of 1v1 encounters
  • An increase of 280% in the number of dribbling moves (inc skills & tricks)

Indoor PDP (Player Development Program)

Program Information

Indoor PDP (Player Development Program) is all about developing first touch and quick thinking, players will be put into sessions that constantly provide this challenge level. A player who can think quickly will always be a success on a soccer field. We want all WESA players to be creative, thinking before the moment has even happened and knowing what they are going to do on the ball before they receive it. Players will go through a 6-week program to improve their first touch, decision-making, pass variety, working in tight spaces, movement on and off the ball, body position to receive the ball, individual technique development, and much more. All of this with the fun element of Futsal-type scrimmages thrown in there to use all the skills above in-game situations.

Program Layout
10U - 15U: Two x 2-hour sessions per week
Either 1 weekday and Sunday OR Saturday and Sunday


Practices will be split into 2 sections with the overall aim of developing the mind, feet, comfort levels on the ball, and FUN.
