Futsal is a game played between two teams of five players on each side. One of the five players is a goalkeeper who unlike soccer/football is very active out on the field. The game of futsal is played on a hard court surface with flat lines on it like a basketball court for the boundaries. It is played with a smaller ball (futsal ball) that has less bounce than a regular soccer ball. To be great at the game of futsal you need to have great improvisation, technique, creativity, ball control and heightened awareness.

The name futsal comes from the Portuguese Futebol de sal√£o, which can be translated as "room football". It was developed in Brazil in the 1930's and 1940's.
