CATONSVILLE CO-ED ADULT FUTSAL LEAGUE (Think court soccer)
If you're an active soccer player, or maybe someone just hungry for an opportunity to get back in the game (no reason for younger kids to have all the fun), come in from the dark & cold and get your kicks for two hours of organized, reasonably competitive, pick-up court soccer every Wednesday night from 8-10pm!
Futsal? That's the name of FIFA's official version of "indoor soccer" (aka "court soccer") & is played 5v5, (with unlimited substitutions on the fly) with the biggest difference being the use of a specifically designed, slightly smaller, low-bounce ball - which makes it much easier to control, & incredibly fun to play! Also, as in outdoor soccer, futsal is played within touchlines - with ours being the basketball lines, & the three-point arc as the goal box. Finally, with rule changes that opt for kick-ins instead of throw-ins, the elimination of slide-tackles &/or strong shoulder charges, futsal = just a smaller version of the beautiful game, & one where "bigger/stronger" actually have, well... little impact. (And since futsal does use touchlines, there's also no risk of getting slammed into those dasher boards used in traditional "American indoor soccer"!)
