Chaffee County Board Member and Coach Chad Gorby stated, “As a kid, you need to touch the ball as much as you can, and FUTSAL is an excellent way to accomplish this. Players must learn to settle the ball rapidly, turn sharply, shield effectively, pass quickly and move into open space. FUTSAL is an incredible way to develop control, and technique, in fast and fun environment.”
