THERE WILL BE NO 6-A-SIDE FOR CHILDREN BELOW 15 YEARS OLD AT SAMFORD THIS SUMMER.
This is our supported program for football for kids over the summer.
In countries such as Argentina, Brazil, Spain and Portugal young football teams stay together to play Futsal in the off season.
This year AFA is partnering with local clubs to provide the same opportunity for the development that players in Argentina, Brazil, Spain and Portugal have enjoyed for many years.
Futsal is a fast game that helps players develop their skills and confidence at an accelerated rate. Internationally renowned players, such as Cristano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi played Futsal growing up. Ronaldo honed his natural ability by playing Futsal “During my childhood in Portugal, all we played was Futsal," he said. "The small playing area helped me improve my close control, and whenever I played Futsal I felt free. If it wasn't for Futsal, I wouldn't be the player I am today."
