WHAT IS 5UP FUTSAL?
5UP FUTSAL, is a development program especially designed for kids aged 5 , 6 & 7 years old. This program will run for approximately 14 weeks and will include training once a week and a game on Saturday morning, all played at Redlynch Central Sports Stadium. Training days will be Thursday afternoons and game days will be Saturday mornings. These games are designed for the young player to develop faster by having more touches of the ball while having fun, with a strong focus on participation and enjoyment while playing in a team environment. This program is a great way to introduce your child to the fast and exciting game of Futsal (5-A-Side Indoor Football).
The Players will get a training session once per week for 1 hour with their team coach. These training sessions will be on Thursday afternoons with 3 time slots allocated – 3:30pm to 4:30pm, 4:30pm to 5:30pm and 5:30pm to 6:30pm. The time slot will be determined by when best suits your Coach and the rest of the team members. All training will be held at Redlynch Central Sports Stadium. There will be a Coaching supervisor at these training sessions to ensure that kids are getting the maximum enjoyment while still developing the skills needed to play Futsal. The training sessions are designed to meet all the requirements needed for each child to develop in a step by step process that has been designed by the Federation of Australian Futsal Head of Education & Player Development. These training sessions may change in days and times for each individual team as some coaches may not be available on Thursdays, so a suitable time for all will be determined by all involved to ensure that all players and coach are available.

BENEFITS OF THE 5UP FUTSAL PROGRAM:
- Players will learn to participate in a team environment.
- Lots of touches of the ball throughout the full pitch – therefore increasing the players rate of development.
- More emphasis on player development rather than on winning or losing.
- Quicker decision making experience.
- Freedom for players to express their individual flare.
- Participation for ALL players regardless of their level due to the necessity to pass the ball more often in Futsal.
- More shots on goal.
- More one on one situations.
- More enjoyment through game formats at training sessions.
- More opportunity for players to try all different positions on the pitch.
- More friendlier team environment.
- More structured training sessions.
Teams will be made up of 6 to 7 players per team. Games will consist of 2 x 15 minute halves and will be played with a Goalkeeper + 4 court players (5-A-Side) on the pitch at a time with 1 or 2 substitutes per team. Each player will be rotated to have a go as a Goalkeeper ever 5 minutes or so (depending on the number of players in the team) to ensure that all players learn both the skills of a court player and a Goalkeeper (the Goalkeeper plays a very important role in Futsal). Each player will also be rotated with the substitutes so as to give every player the same amount of time on the pitch.
COST OF THE PROGRAM:
For the Winter Season, the cost is $137/player for the game fees and training. Each season has approx. 14 to 16 week with games and training each week. All Players must be registered with Redlynch Central Sports Stadium to join the 5UP Futsal Program this will cover their membership and insurance.
