Indoor Soccer

If you can’t wait for spring to play soccer, take your game indoors. The walls and the lack of grass might take some time to get used to, but regardless - it’s still futbol!

Indoor Soccer- Indoor vs. Outdoor

  • A normal indoor soccer venue is smaller than a regulation outdoor field. Indoor soccer is typically played on a turf-covered hockey rink or a hardwood basketball court.
  • Goals are also smaller and there are fewer players on the field. Outdoor soccer teams usually comprise of 11 players on each team, while an indoor team has six.
  • Indoor soccer fields have walls, so if the ball hits them - then the ball is still in play. The only out of bounds is when a goes over those walls.
  • Since turf and hardwood hurt when you fall on them, you are not allowed to slide tackle an opponent.
  • Similar to basketball, some indoor soccer leagues have goals that are worth more points depending on the distance from which it is scored.
  • Indoor Soccer – How to Get Involved

    There are usually indoor soccer leagues in all cities and towns. Typically there are leagues you can join for all seasons, except summer. The season usually lasts for two months and between eight to 10 games. You can usually join an indoor soccer league by the time you are eight years old.

    Indoor Soccer – Health Benefits

    Playing soccer, whether it is indoor or outdoor, is an excellent cardiovascular activity. You must already be in decent shape to start playing, or else this sport will kick your butt instantly! It is a good idea to do some running or rollerblading in the weeks leading up to playing soccer. Playing soccer will improve your stamina, leg strength, agility and endurance.
