FUTSAL

League Description for website: Looking for a fun, recreational sports league to join? Adult Futsal at the REC is FOR YOU! Our league meets on Sunday nights and is 5v5 matchup’s with different divisions. Each team is allowed to roster at maximum 10 players.
The court is smaller so there is less running then normal soccer and the ball is a bit heavier so it doesn’t bounce as much.

What is Futsal?

Futsal is played between two teams of five players each, one of whom is the goalkeeper. Unlimited substitutions are permitted. Unlike some other forms of indoor soccer, the game is played on a hard court surface with lines; walls or boards are not used.
Futsal is also played with a smaller, weighted ball. The surface, ball and rules create an emphasis on improvisation, creativity, and skill as well as ball control and passing in small spaces.

League Structure

The Pro Academy League is a 10-week program that consists of 10 training sessions and 8 games. The training sessions will focus on dribbling, passing, shooting, and teamwork. The league games will reinforce the skills learned in training. Each team will have a volunteer parent facilitator who will help the trainers during practice days and organize the team on game day.

Each field will have a game facilitator that will act as a referee and also provide instruction to the players on the field. Our main objective is to provide individual development within a safe, fun and age-appropriate way. This is a developmental league.

How are teams formed?

The first two training sessions will be used to evaluate all participants. The RECFC Pro Academy staff will then create the teams for the league based off of the player evaluations to ensure competitive balance.

Can my child play with their friends on a team?

That should not be a problem. We will do our best to accommodate requests in the best interest of the league’s competitive balance.
