After School Soccer/Futsal Club
We are happy to announce a new program coming to Foskett Ranch. Vision Soccer Training will be coming to our school starting January 29th to offer an after school Soccer/Futsal Club. To sign up see the link below or click here for flyer with more information.
What is Futsal?
Futsal originated in Uruguay and was quickly adopted throughout South America. It is now played all over the world and is growing rapidly in the United States.
Why is it so great?
Futsal is the ultimate game for helping players to develop skillful and creative tactics, foot skills, and ball control. Futsal is a fast-paced and exciting game that creates players that think quickly on the field and perform well under the pressure of a fast moving game. With on the field teams no larger than 5 vs 5, players are constantly involved in the action and touching the ball on a basketball style court, which has less space than a normal soccer field, encouraging control, finesse and high energy!
