First Kicks Futsal

The game of Futsal is designed to develop and encourage skillful play both with the ball in the air and on the ground. Futsal is very much a part of a Continental player’s development programme and many current European players have played the game from a very early age. The Resource above will give examples of techniques and skills areas. These key areas are considered fundamental to the game of Futsal. It is important to note that both the ball and footwear will affect a variety of skills within Futsal.

The ball has a minimal bounce, is of a much heavier weight and will stop almost dead when in contact with any part of the body. Much of the game of Futsal is designed to be played on the floor but there is an aerial element to the game. Futsal is designed to be played on a smooth, solid surface, generally indoors and the game is designed around this type of surface. Futsal is a fast moving game where different strategies are adopted throughout the game with the emphasis on the individual contribution to team play. Futsal players are required take on the role as an ‘all-round player’ adopting both defensive and attacking roles as positions/roles often change within the game.

Saturday – Stockbrook Manor – 9am, 10am & 11am

Sunday – Hannakins Farm – 9am, 10am.  Tots Sessions – 10.15am & 11am

Sessions that begin late, impact the later groups and subsequent facility bookings.  Please can you ensure you are present to begin your session on time each week to help us keep our timetables – Thank you


This time of year brings unpredictable weather, please ensure all players are equip with suitable outside clothing including gloves, hat and coat.  We do not always have the luxury of moving indoors.  If we are expecting poor conditions, a text will be sent to you if we feel the need to cancel the days session.  This will not impact your weeks remaining.

Tots – You will continue to train indoors on a Sunday until the weather cheers up a little, but please ensure you bring warm clothes in case we do need to move outside


If you have planned absence, please can you ensure you email First Kicks to advise.  We can then ensure we have sufficient numbers each week.  Advised absence over two weeks will ensure your registration is pushed back accordingly


Please can you ensure all cash & cheque payments are provided in an envelope with the players name on the front.  This helps to audit incoming funds.  If you wish to pay by BACS’s, please view the details on the website/email First Kicks or contact Lee Fisher separately.
