The East Meadow Soccer Club is set to offer players and coaches a positive and rewarding experience and it's not too late to enter your team this season.
Futsal is the world's fastest growing indoor sport and is essentially technical soccer adapted for indoor play. The game is played on FIFA regulation courts, which do not have walls around them like traditional 5-a-side games but proper touchlines so the ball can go out of play. The ball is slightly smaller and has 30% less bounce than a normal soccer ball, which lends itself perfectly to the indoor game and improving ball skills. The game is all about improvisation, creativity and technique as well as ball control and pin- point passing in small spaces.
East Meadow SC Futsal begins on January 7th and 8th, 2012. To register your team please email Jeff Gross firstname.lastname@example.org
