Futsal is a five-a side indoor soccer game played with a special ball on marked court (usually a gymnasium) without using any walls coming into play. It is very popular worldwide and gaining an increasing number of adherents in this country.

“Futsal immensely improves ball control skills, says Steve Unger, Athletics Supervisor for Parks & Recreation. “It is an excellent game for hearty competition or simply training.”
Surf City Parks & Recreation has run both youth and adult futsal leagues for the past four years, pioneering this variety of indoor soccer in the area. Practices begin in December for the Winter 2017 league with games starting in January.
