Hardwood courts are plentiful all over the united states due to American Basketball. As you know we don't have any legitimate outdoor Soccer Players in the states, now your asking for legitimate Futsal players? Let americans learn to crawl, walk, jog and then run. It takes time to develop any new sport, like Futsal, don't get caught up in the surface, it's really just bizarre and doesn't do much to help the game grow.

Once Oregon produces a throng of quality adult and youth Futsal Players, which isn't the case today. I'm sure the rubber coated special FIFA Futsal court will be used (right now only Oregon Premier Futsal in Clackamas has it). Until then, (probably 20+ years) play Futsal with the the heavier ball, specific Futsal Goals and use whatever surface is available, maybe not sand of course. As nearly every indoor facility that offers the game of Futsal is played on turf in the PDX area. You can play it outdoors on concrete as well, in order for this game to grow it has to made available in the playground courts at schools and parks.

It's a process my friend.

Futsal is trendy right now. It doesn't make it a better alternative to indoor soccer. South America puts out better soccer players because their kids play more than ours. Call it futsal call it indoor, they are just getting more time on the ball. So if you live closer to an indoor facility, or your kid likes it more, isn't that better than driving them twice as far to play futsal on a wood court?

Not really. And why drive twice as far? Didn't OYFL league just open that has hard surface "home courts" all over the city?

You can't be slow in futsal...you'll get rolled if you are. It's waaaaaaay faster than outdoor

For those that keep saying the ball is heavier in Futsal, pleas do some research. They are low bounce and typically a size smaller, but are also typically slightly lighter than what kids will be used to playing for their age. One poster on here is obviously trying to sell indoor very hard. Having played both and coached teams in both I find Futsal more advantageous for already skilled players. It is true that if kids can't control the ball there will be more stoppages in the game. But indoor also creates laziness imo as well as there is no urgency to keep the ball in play. For the poster that commented about kids kicking it out of bounds on defense, those aren't players natural instincts so if they are doing that they are coached that way. In all my watching of Futsal, I haven't seen kids intentionally kick it out just so their players can get back to help them. In the end, each option turns out to be additional touches on the ball for our little ones so do those thinking if hey made the right decision between the two....you did. You chose for your kid to get extra touches my n a fun environment either way. Enjoy the break between outdoor with some no pressure indoor or Futsal games!

Right now? What, are you the parent of some U11? It's been "trendy" for many years. You parents of 12 year olds are so funny.

Tell that to the players that "think" they are really good 1v1 players. And more importantly, tell that to their, delusional, parents. Good luck with that. It's a marathon people, not a sprint.

My kids a u12 and been Futsalling for years as has his oldest brothers. Definitely a pompous know-it-all U12 dad who's oldest kid is now a U12 and who mistakenly thinks his white privileged travel south of the border makes him an expert.

the entire game.. the best you can ever hope for is 1v1. you're not the best player if you can't beat people 1v1. Cruyff, Best, Moore, Charlton, Messi, Maradona, Ronaldo, C.Ron...
