I hear that street soccer is a good way to keep your ball control up and from what I have seen it looks pretty fun (except for getting panna'd). I was wondering what you guys or girls think about street soccer?

Oh... that blows.

Not many people play street soccer around here. In fact, I've only ever played twice. It does improve control and stuff plus it is really fun. :)

A bunch of kids and I play on my school's tennis court, so it is pretty much the essence of street footy. It is mainly about technique and flair, and it does boil over and get rough sometimes. But this is the area that gets you really good, as the pace and pressure is usually really high and you just have to deal with it.

Street soccer is usually only for the people are "meant" for it, the ones who are decidated in dribbling and freestyling more than shooting, passing, and such.

I think street soccer is more of a way to embarrass me, cuz my friends are all "meant" for it, and I'm a field soccer player (shooter/passer), and I get put-downs everytime cuz I can't do the moves that my friends do.

I would say "street" soccer is similar to futsal or any other kind of small sided game in a tight space. Never play with a group you don't know because it could be dangerous.

Well, I know it's not great to go up to strangers.

But, if you have seen this group play, or have watched them for a bit, maybe asking won't hurt. I know a bunch of people on this site do this and have made new friends this way.

But don't go into some strange and nasty group.

well street futbol is the only thing ive played...and yes its a GREAT way to improve your dribbling skills because of the curbs and bumps on the street and the cars you have to avoid..its just great!! but i do agree that u cant play with long passes and stuff...u just have to shake off your opponents and humiliate them

No, but when I lived in Argentina over the summer, there was one about two blocks away that I would go to like every day.
