2021-2022 WINTER FUTSAL
Registration Deadline: November 15th 

The UFA Futsal program is designed to give players a chance to keep in shape over the winter in an informal setting, similar to playing with friends in your neighborhood. The program has grown in popularity and this year will be run at Fowler Park outside and under the lights. Same futsal rules, same futsal balls, same futsal goals!

This year, instead of 6 teams per hour, we'll now have 12 teams per hour and finish up by 7pm. And in the event of extreme weather, we'll have plenty of opportunity to hold make-up sessions on Fridays or Sundays. Sign up now because teams fill up fast every year! Register by November 15th to secure your spot. Late registrants will be placed on a waiting list. ONLY 6 PLAYERS PER TEAM. REGISTER HERE

*****

Young players exposed to playing Futsal show a greater comfort on the ball along with more intelligent movement off-the-ball. The more pleasure they derive from their participation, the more they wish to play and practice on their own. While their instinct to play is natural, their affection and appreciation for soccer must be cultivated in a soccer rich environment.

Futsal is a foundation to such goals because it:

  • Allows players to frequently touch the one toy on the field, namely, the ball. In a statistical study comparing Futsal to indoor soccer with walls, players touch the ball 210 percent more often.
  • Presents many opportunities to score goals. With limited space, an out of bounds and constant opponent pressure, improved ball skills are required.
  • Encourages regaining possession of the ball as a productive, fun and rewarding part of the game (defending).
  • Maximizes active participation and minimizes inactivity and boredom. Action is continuous so players are forced to keep on playing instead of stopping and watching.
  • Provides a well-organized playing environment with improvised fields. Without a wall as a crutch, players must make supporting runs when their teammates have the ball.
  • Reflects the appropriate role of the coach as a facilitator. With all the basic options of the game in non-stop action mode, players' understanding of the game is enhanced.
  • Players enjoy the challenge of playing a fast-paced, fun and skill-oriented game that tests their abilities; allowing the game to be the teacher!
