Age group: 
5 - 11 years
Restrictions: 
Early age players seeking to improve basic skills
Cost: 
£3 per attendance FREE taster session
Venue: 
YMCA Peakes Lane Grimsby
Event details: 

Session will be lead by qualified teacher/sports coach.

Quality of outcome and not numbers participating is sole aim of course. All equipment is supplied, players will only need to bring indoor trainers, shin pads and water to drink.

Regular updates of the sessions can be found at my FACEBOOK page.

Please read my book, 'Coaching Players in and through Futsal, A Parent Player Guide' click here. Thank you to international sports scientist Dr. Daniel Berdejo-del-Fresno who co-authored the book and stretched me to my limit to get work past the finishing line.

Every session will end with a match, I and the people I surround myself all appreciate that participants must have Fun and leave with a Smile on their face.

My 10 a.m. session is for the starter age group. The aim here is for participants to able to achieve all the six turns needed to play football/futsal off both feet. Once players reach a level they will move onto the next coach and challenge.

Team opportunities will arise subject to suitable parents being found to manage teams.

How do my futsal based coaching sessions compare outcome wise to traditional coaching methods?

RESEARCH GRANT PROGRAMME UEFA DIRECT • March 2017 – 11

Elite football coaches and players, including Arsène Wenger, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Andrés Iniesta, have stated that practising futsal at a young age fast-tracks the development of football-related skills. Indeed, the high-intensity nature of futsal, which is played on a hard surface with a ball that has less bounce than a regular football, might promote the acquisition of finer technical skills and quicker decision making skills, which are then transferable to football. However, there is a lack of evidence supporting this.

The objectives of the study, therefore, were to compare passing performance in football and futsal, and then to investigate the transfer of passing skills from futsal to football. In simple TRANSFER OF SKILLS FROM FUTSAL TO FOOTBALL IN YOUTH PLAYERS In order to give readers a taste of the work supported by the UEFA Research Grant Programme, UEFA Direct has been showcasing research projects funded by the 2015/16 programme.

 This month, Luca Oppici presents details of his study, which compared passing performance in football and futsal. Terms: are the game’s demands and the passing performance similar in football and futsal? In addition, is the performance of futsal players superior to that of football players when playing football? A total of 48 elite male youth players (24 football players and 24 futsal players, aged 13 to 15 years old) played six-a-side football and futsal games, lasting five minutes each, on scaled-down pitches. Decision-making and technical skills associated with passing performance were evaluated. Furthermore, the players wore special goggles that assessed where they were looking when passing the ball, to examine the processes underpinning their decisions. Game and performance related variables were analysed and compared between the groups.

 UEFA Luca Oppici is a PhD student at the Institute of Sport, Exercise and Active Living (ISEAL) at Victoria University, in Melbourne, Australia. ISEAL is a research institute that is internationally renowned for outstanding research in high performance in sport, exercise science and active living. Luca’s research spans skill acquisition in sport, motor learning and development, and sports expertise.

Results of the investigation. The main statistically significant findings can be summarised as follows:

  1. Football-futsal comparison: the technical game demands were higher in futsal than football, as more passes a minute were performed, under higher opponent pressure and with less time for the execution. As a result, futsal players were quicker in executing passes, focusing their attention more on making decisions than controlling the ball compared with football players.
  2.  2. Transfer of skills from futsal to football: in the football games, futsal players performed at higher technical intensity (23% more passes a minute), executing passes that were quicker (by half a second) and more accurate (by 18%) than football players. Very small differences were found in the gaze behaviour, with the futsal players generally focusing more on making decisions than controlling the ball.

 In conclusion, the study showed that futsal had higher demands on passing performance than football. Consequently, futsal players developed quicker technical and decision-making abilities to cope with these increased demands. When futsal players then played small-sided football games, they were able to transfer the technical intensity of futsal and their quick and accurate passing ability. This study, therefore, suggests that futsal could be an effective training stimulus for developing quicker technical and decision-making skills in youth football players.
