The PA Classics Winter Futsal program will be slightly different then in the past. This year, each team will receive 8-10 futsal sessions (60 minutes in length) with your own team and your coach.
The coach will have the option of running practices with drills, splitting up the team each session and just letting the kids play, or combining with teams on occasions whom are training at the same time on adjacent courts. We feel that futsal training is very important for the technical development of the player.
Players from outside of the club that are interested need to contact the Director of Coaching, Steve Klein, at firstname.lastname@example.org first to see if there is room on a team to join them for the winter futsal training. Players must be playing at a travel level to be eligible to join the winter program and parents must provide the playing experience for approval and placement. Players from outside the club will need to pay an additional $25 to purchase 2 training jerseys.

Futsal is the way the world plays indoor soccer. It is played on all the continents of the world in over 100 countries by more than 12 million players.
Futsal is played on a basketball-size court. It can be played on a variety of surfaces. The game does not require the use of expensive dasher board - walls, as do other versions of indoor soccer.
Without the walls, futsal is a great skill-developer, demanding quick reflexes, fast thinking, and pin-point passing. It is an exciting game for children as well as adults.
Great soccer superstars such as Pele, Zico and Socrates grew up playing the game and credit Futsal with developing their skills. Futsal is played with a special low bounce ball, requiring players to use their skills, rather than the ball's bounce, to propel it.
