“Playing indoor in a smaller environment whether it’s indoor (American) or Futsal is so important for not only to increase a players touch technically but obviously thinking as far as shaping the mind and how quick you have to play at times. The amount of pressure that is around you and finding ways to get out of pressure so there are so many things that translate (to the bigger game). For youth players, I think it is such an important tool to have so I think Futsal is crucial to a young player’s development.”
