Youth Futsal

Curious about Futsal? It can be played as a standalone or as a fun addition for a youth soccer player. The game is different from indoor soccer but builds similar skills. Futsal’s play area is smaller and is usually a court or court-like surface rather than a turf surface. Due to the smaller space, Futsal tends to be faster moving than indoor soccer. Typically there are 5 players per side.

We are excited to offer this activity for area youth! Our program for kids is developmental and focuses on building skills and enthusiasm for the game.

Futsal schedule (program begins week of November 7):

Tuesdays, 6:00 – 7:00 pm: Middle school age kids

Wednesdays

4 – 4:30 pm: 3 – 5 year olds

5:45 – 5:30 pm: Elementary school age kids

No pre-registration needed for these sessions. Drop-in fee: $10/child.
