As soccer fever sweeps the nation, people of all ages are playing in a futsal league at Darton State.

Cavalier assistant coach Ken Kirsch organized the league that's designed to help players with their technical skills. There are games for middle schoolers, high schoolers, and even adults.

At the end of the summer, players should be better dribbles and be able to pass on the move.

"This emphasizes the foot skill and the technical skill to advance which is needed to the high school, the college, or perhaps the professional level," Kirsch said.
