About the ASA Winter Futsal League

ASA soccer is moving indoors for the winter for the first winter indoor soccer league in Alexandria! The main focus of the winter futsal league is to improve players’ overall technical ability within an active and high-paced form of play. The games will be played in a 5 v. 5 format including goalkeepers. The format allows players to maximize touches on the ball, enhance passing and receiving abilities in tight spaces, and a chance to create high volumes of chances to score. While skill development is key, players will also be able to benefit from the opportunity to compete over the course of eight weeks of soccer. Players are organized by age and gender. Winter Academy is for players of all skill levels and experience.

Why play futsal?

Futsal is a fast-paced 5-a-side soccer game that is widely played across the world and is officially recognized by both USSF and FIFA. While it can be a sport in its own right, Futsal does not compete with mainstream soccer, but serves to support it. Futsal is widely considered a valuable tool in the development of young players to assist them in becoming more technically proficient in situations of high pressure. 

Key skills and techniques used throughout Futsal games are all directly transferable to the outdoor game.

Through Futsal, players have increased opportunity for:

  • Development of agility, balance, coordination and speed
  • Enhancing comfort level with the soccer ball
  • Learning to make quick decisions while under pressure and in tight spaces
  • Learning better spatial awareness
  • Improving passing, dribbling, turning, shooting and ball control while under pressure 

Who can play and who will coach them?

Both Competitive (Travel) and Recreational players are welcome and encouraged to participate.  Divisions, with standings, are available for players U7 – High School both boys and girls. Each team will have a parent-volunteer manager. ASA Technical Staff and professional coaches will manage games at each site.  Every league game will begin with a 10-minute technical skill building warm-up run by the professional coaches.

Registration/Team Placement

All players (U7-U18) will register individually. After the close of registration, players will be assigned by the ASA Technical Staff to ensure an appropriate level of competition that focuses on skill development.

KEEPING YOUR TEAM TOGETHER: If you have a full team or group of players from a team (5 or more) in the same age group and would like to keep them together during the winter league, please have each player register individually, then email carnold@alexandria-soccer.org with a list of player names. Also, please designate a team volunteer to manage the team. Team sizes will be between 10 and 12 players per team.
