Resumo: What are the female motivations to practice futsal? This study was undertaken to answer this question. Motivational studies highlight the reasons why young people engage in regular physical activities. The interest in physical activity is associated with the occupation of free time or with health and physical, psychological and social well-being. The objectives of this study were to identify the sports motivations that lead the athletes to the practice of indoor soccer and to discover to what extent age, years of competition and club where the modality is practiced motivates the athletes to practice this sport. A quantitative, descriptive-correlation and cross-sectional design was applied. A questionnaire of motivation for sports activities (QMAD), with 30 motivational items was used to collect data on 53 randomly selected female indoor soccer players from clubs in Viseu, Portugal. No significant difference was found in mean ordering between groups, which does not confirm our hypothesis that the older athletes present superior motivation indexes for the practice of futsal compared to that of the younger athletes, meaning that age is not a variable that explains motivation for practice. Differences between clubs is significant in relation to physical form, general affiliation, specific affiliation, and general motivation. It is only in the motivation due to the status that the differences between the groups are significant, which confirms the hypothesis in this factor, but does not confirm it in the remaining ones. The findings of this study make it possible to provide some contribution to enhance the motivation for female futsal athletes.
