Youth Futsal

The YMCA offers a recreational futsal program designed to give players extra experience during a time when soccer is usually out of season.

Futsal is a variation of indoor soccer that is widely played across the world and is recognized by FIFA and other major organizations. This fast-paced game provides unique opportunities for players to develop in precision, decision making, ball control and skillful, creative play. Smaller team sizes result in a much better all-around understanding of the game, as well as more touches on the ball.

The program will develop dribbling, passing, and finishing techniques while instilling confidence necessary to succeed in outdoor soccer.

Teams

Teams are formed based on age. Please refer to our age chart to determine your child's age group.

YMCA futsal may combine younger players to form complete teams. Futsal leagues focus on small skill sessions and games, rather than a traditional practice/ game schedule.
