Coaching Education 



When asked about the direct influence of futsal on his development as a player Pele was quick to acknowledge the benefits futsal offered:
"Of course futsal was important in helping to develop my ball control, quick thinking, passing... of course you have to have an aptitude for both futsal and normal football and you must have the capacity to adjust because of the differences in the games. But for dribbling, balance, concentration... futsal was very, very important, no doubt".


You already know that practice does not make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect.  This is accomplished by repeating skills at high intensity levels.


Daniel Coyle, author of "The Talent Code" names that process as deep practice. Coyle says that "operating at the edges of your ability, makes us smarter".  He uses an example of Brazilian Futsal. For Coyle, Futsal is the "perfectly designed game" to develop soccer talent. Many of us Futsal aficionados could have told you that already, but in The Talent Code, Coyle presents both scientific and empirical research to confirm our enthusiasm for soccer's smaller sister.
