Futsal 2023 Season Success

By March 6, 2023 March 13th, 2023 No Comments

Congratulations to all of the amazing Girls Unite futsal teams that competed in this winter 2023 season.

We are very fortunate in San Francisco to have an indoor league sponsored by SFRPD that allows youth to learn this beautiful game.  In addition, Girls Unite strongly recommends futsal training and games over the winter for our competitive soccer players for the many benefits:

  • Develops Technique & Improves Footwork: Futsal is played on a smaller pitch with a smaller, denser ball, which requires players to focus on their technique, ball control, and quick decision making.¬†Futsal requires players to develop quick and precise footwork, which can translate to better performance on the outdoor pitch.
  • Enhances Vision & Awareness: Futsal requires players to be aware of their surroundings and make quick decisions, which can improve their overall vision and awareness on the field.
  • Builds Confidence: Futsal can help players build confidence in their abilities and decision-making, as they are required to make split-second decisions in a fast-paced environment.
  • Increases Fitness & Agility: The small, fast-paced nature of futsal can help improve a player’s fitness level, and they must constantly move and change directions.
  • Encourages Creativity: Futsal allows players to be more creative with their play, as the small pitch and ball allow for more technical and inventive moves.
  • Team Building: Futsal requires players to communicate and work together as a team. It’s an amazing game for building camaraderie and team cohesion.

Registration for the following winter season occurs in October. Email info@girlsunite.org for more information.
