Winter Futsal

What is Futsal?

Futsal is an international sensation quickly gaining popularity in the United 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.

General Winter Futsal Season Information

Winter Futsal practices usually begin the week after Thanksgiving. Practices often 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. 

Keep in mind that the last week or so of Winter Futsal may overlap with the first two weeks of the spring season, so some teams might end up with two games on a weekend.

Practice-Only Opportunity

Due to the low-cost of Futsal for our continuinig members compared to the Fall and Spring seasons, Vikings Soccer Club will allow players returning in the Spring to signup for the option to attend practices for the entire Winter season.

Simply put, it just didn't make sense to charge the regular $15 per practice for our dedicated players who just might be busy with other sports/experiences during the winter weekends.

You may sign up for this practice-only opportunity by clicking this red text here.
