17 reasons you should play indoor soccer

1. Fitness
Indoor soccer develops three fitness systems: (a) the ATP (Adenosine Tri Phosphate) System for short bursts of speed and power: (b) fire lactic acid system for intermediate power, and (c) the aerobic system for endurance. Indoor soccer utilizes all three systems to a high degree, thereby providing a well-rounded program of fitness development.

2. Coordination, Balance & Agility
The various situational and positional challenges in indoor soccer encompass eye to foot, thigh, chest, head and hand coordination (for goalkeepers). There is no other sport with this range of coordination components. In addition, split second adjustments in body position put great pressure and emphasis on the development of excellent balance and agility.

3. Skill
No sport uses as many of the body's parts in direct contact with the ball as indoor soccer. Furthermore, these areas can be used in many different ways with air endless permutation of effects.

4. Intelligence
There are few sports with as many variables as indoor soccer. Firstly, it is an almost totally fluid sport with very few preplanned situations, therefore, nearly all actions depend on constantly changing circumstances, Secondly, there are 6 opponents and 5 team mates to be taken into account at all times. Thirdly, players must react to stimuli from all angles because indoor is one of the truly 360 degree games. Fourthly, players are subjected to numerous visual, sensual and audial cues during play.

5. Character development
One of indoor soccer's major benefits to the player is the development of important character traits for life. Qualities of perseverance, application, drive, leadership, controlled aggression, concentration, teamwork, self worth and confidence are all developed by indoor soccer.

6. Social skills
Indoor soccer both attracts and helps develop extrovert characteristics. It is beneficial in improving social skills in an environment where individuals are interacting under both high pressure (during game) and low pressure (after game) conditions.

7. Meeting people
The indoor soccer game is a group meeting place. Both players and spectators utilize the game for socialization purposes. Nowhere is this more evident than indoor soccer where players enjoy coed, men's, women's or youth soccer in conditions very conducive to socialization.

8. No physical elitism
The all round physical requirements of an indoor soccer game allows individuals of all shapes, sizes and genetic characteristics to develop excellence and become a valuable team member at elite levels of competition. You do not have to be 280 lb. or 6'8" tall to achieve professional soccer status. This is because leg and foot coordination is the major factor, therefore, even the smaller player can participate on an equal basis with bigger stronger individuals.

9. Constant action
By nature indoor soccer is a game of constant action with very few breaks in play. This keeps both the player and spectator totally entertained, captive and absorbed for a long period of time.

10. Any number can play
Because indoor soccer uses a round, bouncy ball even one person can enjoy such activities as juggling or dribbling in a very small area without a partner. Other skills such as shooting, passing or heading can be practiced using the walls. When a partner is involved the alternatives for practice and fun with a soccer ball become endless.

11. Easy to understand
The objectives and rules of indoor soccer are simple. The object is to score in the opponent's goal and stop them scoring in yours, with a ball that can be propelled in any direction at any time. This is a concept even the very young can understand, thereby making earlier participation possible in organized indoor soccer programs than in other team sports.

12. Economical
The cost of involvement in an indoor soccer program is usually very reasonable when compared to the cost of other indoor sports. Essential personal equipment is limited to soccer or tennis shoes, socks, shin guards, shorts and shirt. This makes soccer possibly the lowest cost team sport of them all.

13. Large age span
The indoor field is ideal for the 3-year-old because the walls keep the ball in play. It is also suited to the older player because of the free substition and climate controlled comfortable environment.

14. Safety
Indoor soccer involves mild physical contact. Excessive contact is penalized within the rules and slide tackling is not allowed in many facilities. Therefore, contact injuries are minimized and tend to be less severe. The low incidence of injury provides the ideal forum for lifetime participation and allows the more mature or less fit individual to participate for a greater length of time. Furthermore, research has shown that the indoor game is safer than outdoor.

15. Climate controlled comfort & smooth surface
In a climate ranging from 100 degree summer days to -20 degree winter nights, through weather such as wind, rain, sleet, snow, and field surfaces that are icy, muddy, rock hard, snow covered or bumpy. It is easy to see why a climate controlled indoor @ facility with a nice, smooth carpet is becoming more attractive to play on plus there are no rain outs.

16. The ball stays in play
The ball is contained by the dasher boards and netting so no time is wasted on chasing the wild pass, shot or clearance. Therefore, players enjoy more ball and breaks in the action are few.

17. Ongoing development and motivation
For players with college or professional ambitions indoor soccer provides a place to play and practice so that their skills improve rather than erode during the late fall and winter months.
