Recreational Winter Program
FutsalRVA is excited to announce our second annual Recreational Winter Training program for players U8-U12 (2008-2011). This program is for recreational boys and girls only. Players new to the game will have a chance to sign up individually, be placed in skill appropriate groups, and train for 12 weeks with our FutsalRVA qualified staff. Each player will then be placed on a developmentally appropriate team and will participate in the recreational (or lower) division of the FutsalRVA winter league, which boast more than 175 teams from Richmond and beyond.
Benefits of Futsal and the Winter Program:
Futsal naturally helps develop skills required for soccer: balance, motor ability, agility and co-ordination, ball mastery, accurate and quick passing and receiving, perception insight and awareness. Children learn skills through repetition, especially when they practice in tight areas while under pressure.
The appropriate training program can have a tremendous impact on the future success of a player and his or her passion for the game. The early mastery of technical skills is one of the most important elements in the development of youth players.
We at FutsalRVA welcome all players wanting to play and be a part of the wonderful game of futsal.
The Recreational Winter Training Program is a developmental program that combines training and game play. Some of our main objectives are to:
Provide high quality developmentally appropriate training to improve soccer/futsal skills
Provide an opportunity to play a competitive game after training where players can implement and apply the skills they learned (with the guidance of a FutsalRVA coach).
Provide 1 quality training per week for 12 weeks
Provide Participation in the FutsalRVA winter league with qualified FutsalRVA coaches
Provide quality training based on the FutsalRVA curriculum
