Over 120 teams from across the country, and even Australia participated in the 3-day event February 14, 15 and 16, with players ranging from U-8 up to U-18. Senda Athletics’ participation in the tournament was the perfect opportunity to showcase our Rio Training futsal ball and Rio XLS Match futsal ball to a knowledgeable audience that is extremely particular about the types of balls they use in their training and games. The feedback we got was very positive: coaches and players alike liked the touch and feel of the Rio and Rio XLS. A surprising and interesting suggestions we received was to develop an even smaller ball then the Rio futsal junior size (22.5 inches circumference), so that players as young as 4 and 6 years old can play with a fair Trade futsal ball We are currently working on a joint collaboration with USYF, to make a quality ball that helps grow the reach and impact of Futsal in the USA.

Many fans decided to check out the Senda booth during a break in the Futsal action.

Futsal is one of the fastest growing sports in the United States, its fast pace and small playing area require players to improvise in tight spaces. The ball that is used as a slightly lower bounce so that it is easier to control on the hard surface. While futsal is similar to indoor soccer, gameplay is more similar to traditional soccer in that, there are no walls. 

With over 70 leagues across the country, United States Youth Futsal is building a nationwide movement to grow this fast pace and technical version of the “Beautiful Game,” and raise its level of coaching and play. Ultimately, a generation of US players that grows up playing futsal through their development process will be able to develop unique skills (speed of play, on the ground quick touches, dribbling 1 v 1, and more) that will transfer into the outdoors. At Senda, we are convinced that it has the potential to increase the level of the US National Teams for both men and women, and help develop a new generation of players.

Active opportunities for youth to play futsal will raise the level of college, MLS play, and contribute to better results for US teams at the World Cup and other international competitions! Jon Perry, – Executive Director of US Youth Futsal, explains in the brief video below, some of the benefits of futsal, that make the game fast, exciting and so beneficial for players.  

Cannot wait for Senda to play an important role in this US Futsal revolution. Stay tuned for more updates…
