Our Mission 

Futsal Institute is about developing critical thinkers of the game – not just about skill development but ensuring that our players are capable of making decisions that create skilful and successful players.
There has always been the dream of establishing a facility that will allow these visions of bringing Futsal the reputation and interest that our games deserves both nationally and internationally.
We are striving to create a Futsal Institute that will offer children, women and men a futsal home that will support individual and team development and improve the status of this amazing game for all involved.
Our Institute will ensure that all who wish to play this game can, children and families of lower socio-economic standing will still have the right to be involved and our organisation will look at supporting those less fortunate.
Our vision is big and our hearts and desire bigger – the calibre of knowledge, experience and credentials will ensure the success of this venture in which we hope you will be excited to be a part of – helping futsal in Australia to grow and internationally helping Australian players gain the recognition they deserve!

Background

Futsal is a variant of association football that is played on a smaller pitch and mainly played indoors. Its name is a portmanteau of the Portuguese futebol de salao and the Spanish futbol de salon which can be translated as “hall football” or “indoor football”.
Since the 1985 World Championships in Madrid, all other names officially changed to Futsal.

Futsal Governance

As the international governing bodies of futsal, FIFA and AMF are responsible for maintaining and promulgating the official rules of their respective versions of futsal. Like association football, futsal has laws that define all aspects of the game, including what may be changed to suit local competitions and leagues. There are seventeen laws in the Futsal Laws of the Game.

Basics

Futsal is played between 2 teams each with 5 players, one of whom is the goal keeper. The maximum number of substitutes allowed is seven, with unlimited substitutions during the match. Substitutes can come on even when the ball is in play. If a team has fewer than three players in the team, the match is abandoned.
The game is played on a hard court surface. Futsal is also played with a smaller ball with less bounce then regular footballs.
The surface, ball and rules create an emphasis on improvisation, creativity and technique as well as ball control and passing skill development which complements many a futsal player and will enhance the outdoor players’ game too.

All players, parents/guardians and supporters of players agree to abide by our centre laws and policies. These can be viewed by clicking on the buttons below.
