Futsal-Family

FUTSAL—FAMILY

KUEHN C.C. | ALL AGES Free

Futsal is a fast-paced version of soccer with a couple of twists. One of the major differences is that Futsal is played indoors. The game is played 5 vs.5 rather than a traditional 11 vs. 11 soccer match, giving everyone plenty of playing time to make a difference! Futsal also utilizes a special weighted indoor ball to ensure maximum control. Don’t have a team? No sweat; we will find a team for you to join, for this “pickup game” format. All levels are welcome. Registration required.

APR 12 | MON | 6–7 P.M.
