Objectives: The aim of this study was to determine differences in futsal skills between club and high school players. Subjects were 110 futsal players from club competitions (n=62) and high school competition (n=48). Methods: Futsal skill was measured according to the instructions of the Futsal Skill Test–FST. The FST requires players to pass, receive, dribble, and shoot the ball as quickly as possible whilst making the fewest mistakes. Participants completed two main trials on the same day. Independent samples t-test were used to examine possible differences between groups (p < .05). Results: The performance time in club players (68.702 ± 11.16 s) was 10.2% significantly faster (p < .05) than in high school players (76.513 ± 9.90 s) and the taken time in club players (57.897 ± 9.17 s) was 11.6% significantly faster (p < .05) than in high school players (65.491 ± 7.92 s). Conclusion: In conclusion, the club and high school futsal players differ in the agility, but not in the accurate as futsal skill.
