TORWOOD FUTSAL CLUB: SPACES AVAILABLE FOR CHILDREN AGED 6-15

Torwood Futsal Club is a community club aimed for all children aged 6-15 from the communities of Larbert, Torwood and Stenhousemuir.

Futsal is an indoor football style sport and is played in a court setting. This sport requires the use of a special ball that does not bounce. Players have to use a degree of skill to play and the aim of the weekly session is to coach children in these skills.

The benefits of Futsal include-

* It will make you a better player. The world’s top players Neymar and Ronaldo all played Futsal when young.

* Fast pace games improves decision making

* Improves children’s health

Currently we have 4 training sessions aimed at different ages and ability open to both boys and girls.

* Monday @ Larbert High School

* Tuesday @ Denny High School

* Wednesday @ Larbert High School

* Thursday @ Larbert High School

Our club is run by volunteers providing many hours unpaid work each week. All our volunteers hold a PVG.

PLEASE CHECK OUT THE TORWOOD FUTSAL CLUB FACEBOOK PAGE FOR MORE INFORMATION AND TO REGISTER FOR A CLASS.

What the Great Players Say About Futsal

“As a little boy in Argentina, I played Futsal on the streets and for my club. It was tremendous fun, and it really helped me become who I am today.”

-Lionel Messi

“During my childhood in Portugal, all we played was Futsal, the small playing area helped me improve my close control, and whenever I played Futsal I felt free. If it wasn’t for Futsal, I wouldn’t be the player I am today.”

-Cristiano Ronaldo

“The technique of playing Futsal is different to the eleven-a-side version; there are spectacular things you can attempt that you would not dare trying in football. It adds more fun to the discipline.”

-Zinadine Zidane

Wheely Wednesday is a great opportunity to talk to our friendly and knowledgeable colleagues from the Falkirk and Stirling Active Travel Hubs about walking opportunities, cycling opportunities and anything related to active travel.

  • If you’d like a safer cycling route then the staff will be happy to help you with this.
  • Want to know of local led rides you can join with?  Ask the team on Wednesday.
  • Why not try an e-bike?  People who have tried them LOVE them.
