Learning How To Play Indoor Soccer
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Indoor soccer is a interesting variation on the game of soccer with most of the same rules and regulations. The only difference is it is played indoors. Learning how to play indoor soccer can allow a child or adult to learn the game without dealing with the additional problems that can be found outside and may be perfect for the aspiring player that cannot play out doors because of allergies. In fact, learning how to play indoor soccer might be a way to end the excuses against exercise for a number of people.

Kids with asthma and allergies may find themselves watching soccer on television and wishing they could get out there in the mellow yellow gold of the summer sun like other kids but knowing that they cannot. They may wish that they could feel the heat on their face and the soft, grass under their feet as they run after the ball, but know it is not possible.

If they learn how to play indoor soccer, they might get some of the thrill without worrying about the heat, the pollen and the other problems that they are likely to have. Of course, before these children start to learn how to play indoor soccer, they should have full clearance from their doctors so there is not any danger to them.

Learning how to play indoor soccer may have an additional benefit as well: it can be used as continued training during the inclement months when getting outside is out of the question. In certain areas of the world, there are several seasons when outside sports are pretty much out of the question as the fields are either frozen tundras or swampy, soupy messes. Being able to take the game inside allows the player to keep and refine valuable skills from one season to the next without having to take the time to relearn the basics or to shake off the rust after a few months of hiatus.

In addition to the benefits for the players themselves, learning how to play indoor soccer can also bring in more fans who no longer have to sit in the blazing sun watching little Jimmy fall down after a corner kick. It might actually be that there would be more support for the game if it were just a little less uncomfortable to watch it.

Traditionalists and purists will balk at the idea of learning how to play indoor soccer saying that it changes the face of the game. Of course, they said the same thing about arena football and while that did not last forever, it certainly had its fans at the time. Sports can be played indoors and outdoors; it does not change the game. It is still hockey whether it is played inside of an arena or outside on a frozen baseball diamond for the Winter Classic. It is still football if it is played under the starry sky or under the closed dome. And it is still soccer whether it is on a sunny field or indoors.
