INDOOR SOCCER

Indoor five-a-side soccer is a smaller version of the game, featuring four outfield players and a goalie on a smaller pitch with smaller goals and a reduced game duration. Because of the small team size, each player gets more time with the ball—providing them ample time to learn and execute offensive and defensive techniques in a rather fast-paced game. Whether you are a more casual recreational player or a competitive player, 5-a-side soccer is the perfect fit for you.
