Futsal is the world's fastest-growing indoor sport and is beginning to see rapid growth in the United States. Futsal is responsible for developing some of the world's best soccer players. And so more & more international futsal superstars are holding clinics & training sessions for youth players inside the States. On June 20th, Four-time world's best futsal player & Brazilian International star Falcão held a clinic & exhibition match with Sole Futsal Center in Philadelphia.
The clinic consisted of youth players ages 9-16 given a 90-minute session that included tips, tricks, and techniques with the futsal king. There was also a presence of other current soccer & futsal professional players present to provide extra guidance and assistance to the youth players at the clinic. The exhibition match took place later that night which saw Falcão and friends take on Philly Allstars.
Senda Athletics was present and worked closely with Sole Futsal Academy to provide the gear used during Falcão weekend clinic & game. Sole Futsal Academy strives to create a foundation of technical ability for its youth players.
By bringing in the Two-Time World Cup futsal champion, it was a great learning experience for the young futsal players present to see first-hand the most skillful futsal player to ever grace the sport. The clinic and exhibition game were a huge success thanks to all the players who took part and the spectators.
The success of the Falcão USA tour is a reflection that the United States does have a passion for futsal and the future of futsal in the United States continues to look more promising as time progresses.
