Program Information

The Academy Futsal season runs from December – March (some teams may have post season play in the spring or summer depending on qualifications and availability).

The cost for Futsal ID varies between $600-900. The pricing is based on a number of variables including; age, tournaments and number of practices. Financial aid is available upon request.

A standard season schedule includes:

  • two practice per week
  • explosive performance training
  • goalkeeper training
  • two or three tournaments
  • Futsal League (8 games, January – March)

Player Placement

To maintain consistency and cohesion, ASA is adjusting the tryout structure and process by transitioning to a “Player Placement Process” for current Alexandria Academy players. The goal is to create more consistency with teammates throughout the year, retain team cohesion, avoid unnecessary tryout confusion and stress, and keep the process smooth with limited logistical challenges for families. Players interested in joining a team should register for player placement and our staff will place them on a team.

Due to the smaller roster sizes in futsal (eight to ten players) and shorter season (three months) the program focuses on placing kids on teams where they can both find success and be challenged during the fast-paced season.

Academy Futsal FAQs (2022-23)

During the futsal season (December-February) we plan to utilize both indoor and outdoor futsal courts in order to maximize available play space and provide an opportunity for teams to train twice a week. 

This year ASA will host the Mid-Atlantic Regional Tournament (ASA’s Futsal Cup) in Alexandria on December 16-18. During the months of January-February, Academy Futsal teams will participate in the Futsal Premier League and select teams will attend various state and regional competitions.

Projected Academy Futsal Program schedule:

December 5th (first practice):

  • 2x training sessions per week (approx. 6 sessions)
  • 1-2 official scrimmages
  • Dec 16-18 | Mid-Atlantic Regional Tournament (All Teams)

January- February 

  • 2x training sessions per week (approx. 15 sessions)
  • 8-10 league games in the ASA Futsal League
  • 1-2 scrimmages
  • 1-4 tournaments (approx. 4-15 games) — dependant on team

The specific dates and times of training will be communicated after tryouts and after determining the number of teams in the program. Team training may be a combination of one day outside at an Alexandria City futsal / multi-use court and one day INSIDE.

Participation in these tournaments is determined by the player pool of each age group. A number of variables are considered. These include the group’s availability, overall skill level, collective futsal experience, and more. Final decisions for competitions are determined by the ASA futsal technical staff.

Red and Elite groups, in general, will be compete at the regional and national level. White, Blue and Black teams, in general, will compete in local events.

Red and Elite teams, in general, will be the teams that compete at the regional and national level. White, Blue and Black teams, in general, will compete in local events.

ASA is expanding the opportunity for Academy Futsal players to compete in regional and national tournaments by offering two top level teams in select age groups. The addition of an “Elite” team to certain age groups is based on the depth, growth and development of that specific pool of players. Regardless of team placement, the coaching staff is focused on placing participants in situations that offer an appropriately challenging environment and foster development.

It is not the same as travel or academy soccer but this is a comparable way to think about the program. Teams are selected based on ability, availability and commitment. The Academy Futsal teams train together in preparation for local, regional, national and possibly international futsal competitions.

Players will undergo a one or two day open tryout/evaluation process prior to the start of the season. Additionally, players are evaluated during Academy training sessions and games throughout the fall soccer season. The Futsal ID coaching staff works together to identify the appropriate futsal opportunity for each player with ASA’s platform (Academy Futsal team or non-Academy Futsal league team). All players have an opportunity to play futsal though the Academy Futsal platform is recommended only to those with the highest comfort level and ability within the game. Any player may register to play in the league.

If your participant does not play for an ASA Academy team please reach out to [email protected] for supplemental opportunities.

 Coaches will be evaluating:

  • Attacking 1v1
  • Defending 1v1
  • Mobility w/o the ball
  • Character (work ethic, sportsmanship, competitive spirit, coachability)

Each team will have eight to ten players.

Playing time at the U9-12 level will be managed to give each player at least 50% of playing time in Futsal League games over the course of the entire season (not per game). Playing time for U13-U19 year old players will be based on commitment, work ethic and skill level. In major tournaments, playoffs or final matches coaches will make playing time decisions in an effort to win.

YES! Each team is required to have a team manager that will help the head coach with communication, registering for tournaments, handing out jerseys, and rostering. If you are interested in volunteering please contact [email protected].

The Academy Futsal program is a tryout only program. Participants attend tryouts, are selected to a team, train twice per week and compete in competitions.

Participation in the Futsal League is open registration. Teams and players are placed in competitively appropriate divisions. Players in the Academy Futsal program will play in the league and will be automatically registered.

Futsal Ball Mastery is a training program that introduces and teaches futsal concepts and skills prior to the start of the Futsal League.

After accepting a position with an age group in the ASA Academy Futsal Program, all ASA fees due or paid are non-refundable regardless of the reason for the player’s ceasing to participate. If the player chooses to leave the club or transfer to another club at any time, no portion of the fee is refundable. In the same case a player is not in good standing with the club until their full annual balance has been paid. If a player is injured such that the player is unable to participate the remainder of the seasonal year, a decision will be made by the Deputy Director, with consultation with the Futsal Director or full Futsal committee, whether based on the particular facts it will elect to refund any part of the fee.

The incurred cost of any added on competitions or training sessions will be passed onto participants in the range of $100 – $400 depending on the event AND/OR if any practices are added.

The first payment, $275 ($135 financial assistance pricing) is due when you register your child with their team after receiving an invite.

We ask that parents accept or decline the invitation within 48 hours of receiving it via email. When you click ACCEPT or DECLINE in the invitation, please be sure to complete all steps to register in order to officially accept/reserve your spot.
