Club Futbolinho Training Focus

  • Futbolinho is a fast-paced, small-sided, indoor training tool.
  • The program uses size 2 rebound soccer balls which ensure that each player spends maximum contact time on the ball, therefore improving their confidence and composure whilst in possession.
  • The hard wood floor, enclosed walls, and continuous playing time all lead to a fast-paced game that improves a player’s reactions, stamina and speed. The unrivaled ball contact time, and ultra small-sided games also mean that players are constantly in the action.
  • The Club Futbolinho program also serves as a stepping stone and pathway for aspiring players to join the esteemed RDS Futbolinho program.
