Alexandria Soccer is excited to announce our 2015-2016 winter program opportunities available to all of our players! This winter ASA will host two distinct futsal programs for our players to continue training and competing during the winter months. Please continue reading for more information regarding the ASA Winter Futsal Skills Training Program (November & December) and the ASA Winter Futsal League (January & February). Both programs will include separate competitive ("travel") and recreation levels to maximize each player's experience.
Winter Futsal Skills Training Program
What is the Winter Futsal Skills Training Program?
The ASA 2015-2016 Winter Futsal Skills Training Program is a supplemental training program that provides players with an opportunity to receive high quality educational futsal training during winter months of November and December.
Program Objective: The program is specifically designed to improve each player’s individual technical abilities, speed of decision making and tactical understanding as it relates to the sport of futsal. The program will instill confidence and comfort within the game for all players leading up to the ASA Winter Futsal League (January and February) as well as outdoor players who are seeking supplemental training opportunities.
Dates: Program classes will run every Sunday at local recreation centers and gyms throughout the Alexandria, VA. Classes will begin Sunday, November 15th ending Sunday, December 20th.
Projected Scheule: The schedule including locations and times will be similar (not the exact same) to last year's schedule with classes running between 9am - 9pm. Last year's schedule started with our youngest age groups U5/U6 and U7 age groups, followed by U8, U9, U10 and so on. Classes will run every hour. You can expect a similar (not exact) schedule with younger age groups earlier in the day and older age groups later in the day. The exact schedule including exact times and locations will be available soon.

About the ASA Winter Futsal League
ASA soccer is moving indoors in January and February for the third winter futsal league in Alexandria. The primary focus of the winter futsal league is to provide an opportunity for each player to improve his or her overall technical ability within a fun, active and high-paced form of play, called futsal. The games will be played in a 5 v. 5 format including goalkeepers. The format allows each player to maximize touches on the ball, enhance passing and receiving abilities in tight spaces, and a chance to create high volumes of scoring opportunities. While skill development is key, players will also be able to benefit from the chance to compete against other teams over the course of eight (8) games of futsal. Players are organized on to teams by age and gender. While the program is open to players of all skill levels, there will be two distinct division levels – “recreational” and “travel” that mirror our core programs -- to optimize each player's game day experience.
The league is open to all ASA players and non-ASA players. Non-ASA teams CAN register for this league. Please contact ASA Futsal League Coordinator, Chris Arnold at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a non-ASA team or group of players interested in participating in the league to receive details on how to register.
