Loudoun Soccer is pleased to announce its U8 Academy Winter Training program. The theme of the program is “Foot Skills and Futsal” – players will receive instruction from licensed, professional coaches to improve their technical skills (dribbling moves, passing, receiving, etc) for part of practice, and then will be organized into squads to play Futsal for the remaining practice time.
Futsal is a version of indoor soccer typically played on hard surfaces (like a basketball court) without walls. The game is played with a weighted, low bounce ball; the surface, the ball and the rules place an emphasis on improvisation, creativity and skill, which is great for young, developing players.
Your child’s participation in this program is not required, but it is strongly encouraged.
Sunday January 11, 19, 26; February 1, 8, 15, 22; March 1
