Tell Me About Marin Futsal?
Over the last 29 seasons of Marin Futsal, more than 26,000 local kids have taken part in Futsal. Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced sport that has skill development designed right into it. With Futsal, a player can't help but improve their passing, shooting, dribbling, defending, and overall team skills. Futsal is the official indoor sport of FIFA (soccer's governing body). U.S. Futsal is affiliated with U.S. Soccer Federation.
Frank Bonardi, Executive Director of Marin Futsal
Marin Futsal was started by Frank Bonardi as a winter skill-building session for local soccer teams. It was such a hit that Frank decided to continue Marin Futsal as an annual winter league to help kids maintain and build their soccer skills during the outdoor off season.
Over 29 years later, Frank has been able to create a successful league that focuses on skill development, which supports the outdoor game, good sportsmanship, and most importantly, fun!
