New Mini Soccer and Youth Futsal Handbook Launched

The FA has launched a Mini-Soccer and Youth Futsal handbook ahead of the new 2018/19 season, highlighting the new laws and principles.

This handbook has been produced as a reference for coaches, volunteers, parents and anyone who may be involved in Mini-Soccer and Youth Futsal.

Its purpose is to:

• Update the mini soccer laws of the game (they haven’t been updated for five seasons)

• Add in new optional laws that have been approved via the Leagues Pilot Scheme

• Encourage Mini-Soccer and Youth Leagues to embed Futsal into their offer

• Raise awareness of Futsal and the benefits of Futsal to young players and to educate people on the laws of Futsal

• Promote the need to create a player centred environment providing the very best introduction to the game.

The Mini-Soccer and Youth Futsal Handbook is available for download in a smartphone ready format.
