Futsal is an international sensation quickly gaining popularity in the states. Basically, Futsal is a small-sided game of soccer ( 4 field players and a goalkeeper) that is focused around ball skills. The nature of the game encourages players to develop passing combinations and ball handling skills that will transfer over to the larger field.
Games are indoors on smaller fields (about the size of a basketball court), using the boundary lines of the basketball court, and teams play with kick-ins as opposed the throw-ins. There are two 20 min halves for all age groups.
Winter Futsal practices begin the week after Thanksgiving. Practices usually take place on outside courts, rain or shine.
The season starts the first Sunday in January and ends in March. Games will be held in indoor gyms. You may expect to have 3 or 4 weekends without games. Two of those weekends without games will be the weekends of 1/20 and 2/17.
Keep in mind that the last two weeks of Winter Futsal overlap with the first two weeks of the spring season, so some teams might end up with two games those two weekends.
