WHAT IS 5UP FUTSAL?
The 5Up Futsal Competition, is a new development program especially designed for kids aged 5, 6 and 7 years old.
This competition runs for approximately 14 weeks and is played on Saturday mornings at Redlynch Central Sports Stadium. These games are designed for Fun and to encourage kids to have more touches of the ball so as to have a strong focus on participation and enjoyment while playing in a team environment. This competition is a great way to introduce your child to the fast and exciting game of Futsal (5-A-Side Indoor Soccer).
Teams are made up of 6 to 7 players per team, and each child is given a specific team uniform to play in.
Games constist of 2 x 15minute half's and are played with a Goalkeeper and 4 court players (5-A-Side) on the pitch at a time with 1 or 2 substitutes per team; each player is rotated to have a go as the Goalkeeper every 5 minutes (depending on the number of players per team) to ensure that all players learn both the skills of a court player and a Goalkeeper (as the Goalkeeper plays a very important role in Futsal).
Each player is also rotated as the substitute so as to give every player the same amount of time on the pitch.
Players receive a training session once a week with their coaches; these training sessions are on Thursday afternoons form 5pm to 6pm at Redlynch Central Sports Stadium. There is a coaching supervisor at the training sessions to ensure that all players are receiving the maximum enjoyment while still developing the skill needed to play. The 5Up program meets all the requirements needed for each child to develop in a step by step process designed by the Futsal State Director of Coaching. These training sessions may change in days and time for each individual team as some coaches may not be available on the Thursdays, the sessions will then be determined by the coach and the availability of the players.
