The Futsal ID 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

- goalkeeper training
- two or three tournaments
- Futsal League (8 games, January – March)
Prospective Futsal ID players are identified in a variety of ways. These may include: futsal ID tryouts, coach or staff recommendations, performance in previous futsal programs, and/or experience in the ASA Academy Program. Coaches are considering variables such as a players’ comfort level and experience in the game of futsal, availability for team training sessions and games, and ability to execute with and against the highest level futsal competition.
We recognize futsal as a different sport to outdoor soccer and while there are many similarities, a player’s strengths and weaknesses may differ between the two sports. Prospective players should not assume they have an equal level of skill or expertise in both soccer and futsal.
Due to the smaller roster sizes in futsal (eight to nine 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.
