Abstract

The diameter of the futsal ball (200 mm) is smaller than that of the soccer ball by 20 mm, and the futsal ball also has lower resilience than the soccer ball. Because of these differences in the balls, it is thought that the kicking motions of futsal players are distinct from those of soccer players. No study has yet been conducted on the motion involved in kicking a futsal ball. The aim of this study was to clarify the difference between the motion involved in kicking the futsal ball with that involved in kicking the soccer ball.
