The BRASILIAN FUTEBOL is a player development tool that can be used by players of all ages at all levels. Beginning or young players can improve motor skills & coordination, eye – foot coordination, and balance as they learn how to use their bodies in relationship to the game. Advanced players can develop rigorous, fast-paced routines that stress a quality touch, agility, physical and tactical speed, fitness and a determination to succeed.
The Brasilian Futebol is now offered in two sizes. The original futebol is similar in size to a # 3 soccer ball, but is weighted to approximate a size 5 giving players a truer feel and thus developing a better touch.
Our newest addition, the Bambino, is the size of an american softball or a grapefruit. Both are made of rubber which gives it lively qualities and, with proper inflation, considerable bounce. The bounce sets the Futebol apart from other practice balls adding a new dimension to training sessions.
Together, these two balls offer a dynamic way to develop a touch and skill set that will make training with a regulation game ball seem easy.
