Futsal is a 5 a-side soccer-like game played on a hard court. The game is different from soccer in that it is played with a heavier size 4 ball, smaller goals, and has some rule particularities. 

CFJ West offer futsal indoor options for some of its teams. Use the videos on the right to learn about the game, its rules, and watch some outstanding highlights.
