TCTC Announces 4v4 Brazilian Futbol League
Soccer News: The Catalyst Training Center Debuts 4v4 Indoor Brazilian Fútbol League
The Catalyst Training Center, a soccer-only facility in San Diego that provides specialized training to help players achieve their highest levels, has announced the formation of a new 4v4 Indoor Brazilian Fútbol League for adults. The new league will kick off on Saturday, September 8, and will provide exciting, fast-paced soccer for men’s, women’s and co-ed teams in 18+ and 30+ divisions. Registration will close on September 1, with an early registration discount of $50 for teams that sign up by August 25.
TCTC’s Brazilian Fútbol includes elements of both futsal and arena (indoor) soccer. The game is played on a small (20 yd x 30 yd) smooth turf-surface court with open sidelines, similar to futsal. These open sidelines encourage players to focus on ball control and accurate passing, some of the key elements of futsal. Also similar to futsal, the game is played with a small, weighted ball. However, the end lines are boards to keep the ball in play after a shot on goal, as in arena/indoor soccer.
Small-sided games have become more popular among coaches and players alike, for a number of reasons. Playing a small-sided (4v4) game helps players to improve their skills with additional touches on the ball and a constant need to focus on the action on the smaller field. Teams learn to play together more effectively and to concentrate on quick 1- and 2-touch passes to advance the ball. Players also are able to improve both ends of their game with the constant shift between offense and defense. Perhaps most important of all, small-sided games are just plain fun.
In Brazil, small-sided games – particularly futsal – have helped to develop many of the top names in soccer. Brazilian players are noted for their quickness both on and off the ball and the ability to make rapid decisions in crowded spaces. They are also famous for their ball control and creative style of play. TCTC’s 4v4 Indoor Brazilian Fútbol, with its combination of futsal and arena soccer, can help players to develop some of those skills and abilities.
"All of the best players in the world grew up playing small sided soccer,” says San Diego Sockers forward and two-time Professional Arena Soccer League (PASL) MVP Kraig Chiles, “including Mesi, Ronaldinho, and Robinho. Playing 4v4 helps any soccer player take their technical ability to the next level. Less people on the field means more individual touches on the ball. The fast paced play is not only good fitness, but it's a lot of fun too."
Chiles credits much of his own success on both the indoor and outdoor pitch to the small-sided games he grew up playing. In addition to his MVP awards, he is also the PASL’s leading scorer and was the 2011 PASL Playoff MVP. Chiles is also a member of the U.S. Futsal National Team and a leading scorer there as well.
Registration for TCTC’s 4v4 Indoor Brazilian Fútbol is open to both developed teams and individuals wishing to join a team.
