Futsal is similar to basketball – played with a player’s feet. Futsal is a cousin to soccer but played on a hard court, with limited contact and maximum touch. The game places an emphasis on technical skill and ability in situations of high pressure. It is a five-a-side fast-paced game played around the world. Hobart is the first to offer the game outdoors in the region.
“We are excited to bring this limited contact sport to Hobart, Indiana to teach skill and offer creative play in a fun environment. The Hobart Parks Department is looking forward to Futsal gaining momentum in the Midwest and hope to expand the league in the near future,” said Kelly Goodpaster, Hobart Parks Department Director.
Hobart has opened the league to players age 6-18 with a maximum roster size of nine. For more information about Hobart’s first Summer Futsal League, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Fred Rose Park is located at 200 W. 8th Street in Hobart.
