First u10s playing futsal – Want to start your team playing?

Catenaccio (Blue) & Galacticos’
October 2021

Galacticos’ u9s vs. Catanaccio u10s

Big round of applause to both teams for playing our first test game at this young age group.
Futsal after mini soccer on grass is a lot to take in. Kick-ins rather than throw-ins; corners and kick-ins to be played on the floor; opposition retreating 5 m from ball at corners and throw-ins. The smaller heavier ball and that dreaded restriction on passing back to your own keeper.
The one law both formats play is the retreat to the half way line on a restart from the keeper, so all was okay on that one.
Teams played 3 x 10 minute slots, to give the coaches breaks to get coaching points across to their players.
Pleasing quote from Galactic’s’ manager was that his team ‘had improved in each third’.
Both teams want play again, which for a Fixture Secretary is pleasing to hear.
