Development focus for Chicas Futsal Programming:
- U9-U12 - 1v1 Dribbling to:
- Possession (maintain possession, separate from pressure, take space)
- Penetrate (beating defenders and advance)
- Unbalance defense (drag defensive out of shape)
- Delay/Speed up attack (advancing with speed before defense recovers, or delay to allow our team to advance/support)
The below video is of Andres Iniesta, FC Barcelona (Central Midfielder). In these video clips he demonstrates all of the above listed dribbling techniques. Observe his body, balance, awareness of where space and pressure is, change of speed/direction, and complete composure at all times. Work. Love. Share. We are the Chicas!
Over the past four years, the Indie Chicas FC have partnered with Franz Witte Nursery to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness through the sales of the popular Chicas bracelet. The inside message of this years bracelet will include "WE R SARAH STRONG!" in support of our own Chicas, Sarah Rice (U14), who has battled a brain tumor this past year. We are happy to report she is winning her battle!
We ask that each Chicas player, in pairs or groups, ask for donations in exchange for an “INDIE CHiCAS FúTBOL- ViVA las CHiCHiS" bracelet (translation; long live the breasts). We are asking for a $5 donation, but will happily accept larger donations, or less. 100% of all proceeds go to the following programs:
Checks, from all proceeds, will be presented September 24th, at Franz Witte’s OktoberBreast Celebration. We have 3 weeks to raise money for these wonderful programs that enhance the quality of life for people and families impacted by this disease. Thank you and Viva Las Chichis!
