GAASA / Ohio North Futsal program - ages 4-8.

GAASA and Ohio North are starting a Futsal program  this Spring on Friday evenings for ages 4-8.  

Futsal is a face paced game very similar to soccer, but held indoors on a field about the same size as a basketball court. Futsal balls are a bit smaller than a soccer ball and do not bounce. Futsal encourages ball control, which results in more passing opportunities and touches on the ball. This program will be run as an academy style clinic with skills for about 30 minutes followed by water break. Players will then be broken into teams of 5-8 and play three 15 minute games for about 40-50 minutes.

Futsal skills translate well with soccer and helps youth players increase their development skills at a much faster pace.

Here are the details of the program which begins March 16th: Boys and girls ages 4-8 years of age.
6 x 90-minute sessions = 9 total hours.
Fridays, 6pm-7:30pm. (March 16, 30, April 13, 20, 27, May 11)
$80 per participant, includes Futsal Ball and Futsal Futures t-shirt.
Location is Goodyear Hall 1201 East Market St in Akron (across the street from the Goodyear headquarters).

Players will be able to register through the GAASA website ( using the posted link.

Coaches/volunteers are also needed to assist. There is a scheduled three hour clinic scheduled prior to the first session. Please contact Otto Orf ([email protected]) for further clarification.
