About the ASA Winter Futsal League

ASA soccer is moving indoors in January and February for the fourth winter futsal league in Alexandria. The primary focus of the winter futsal league is to provide an opportunity to participate in a fun, active and high-paced form of play, during the cold winter months. 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 supplementary benefit, players will also be able to enjoy the competetion against other teams over the course of eight (8) games. 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 soccer 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 carnold@alexandria-soccer.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. 

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.
