Have you heard of Futsal? Why are Brazilian’s so tricky and skilful? Does your child love scoring goals?
Futsal is a super-fast, fun, exciting, small sided game which is traditionally played indoors on a hard surface. Futsal is played within a small court, uses hockey sized goals and the ball has 33% less bounce than a Football.
Futura Futsal is arriving in Harrogate starting this September.
Futura Futsal’s main aim is to holistically develop the individual through ball mastery skills, 1v1 mini games, through to 5v5 matches and most of all having loads of FUN. In Futsal players touch the ball 6x more than in football, perform 5x more shots on goal and are forced to be creative to escape from tight spaces.
If your son or daughter is 6-10 years of age and would like to give the sensational game Futsal a go, sign up for your FREE taster session by getting in contact with Tom on 07534996052 or email email@example.com.
We’re pleased to announce details of our under 5s activities week.

Due to the popularity of the Wednesday morning group, we are now holding a further session of this toddler group every Friday in term time. As with the Wednesday group, it will run from 9.30am to 10.45am, £2 per family with tea, coffee and a snack for the children. Please come along – we are in Room 13 at the back end of the playground and up the stairs. We are starting this Friday, September the 20th.
