Futsal is the only indoor soccer game recognized by FIFA and is played 5-aside on a smaller surface (court) with a low bounce (futsal) ball that allows each player to make technical and tactical decisions in a productive environment that still encourages the physical and social elements associated with soccer. Futsal is a fast-paced and skillful game that can be used as a developmental tool for soccer during the indoor training period or as a stand-alone sport.
As futsal grows internationally and across Canada, SSA is beginning to develop tools for implementation and plans to expand futsal opportunities throughout Saskatchewan. Find a Member Organization to play futsal with.
