Program Information

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

Identification

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.

Futsal ID FAQs

Please note: As we continue to obtain guidance from the Alexandria Health Department programming may be adjusted. The below information and structure describe our current plans but are subject to change.

During the futsal season (November-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.

Please note: As we continue to obtain guidance from the Alexandria Health Department programming may be adjusted. The below information and structure describe our current plans but are subject to change.

This year ASA will host the Mid-Atlantic Regional Tournament (ASA’s Futsal Cup) at the DC Armory on December 3-5th. During the months of January-February, ID teams will participate in the Futsal Premier League (the re-branded winter futsal league) and select teams will attend various state and regional competitions.

Projected Futsal ID Program schedule:

November-December—First half of season:

  • Two training sessions per week (approx. 8 sessions)
  • One to two official scrimmages (approximately one per week)
  • Dec 3-5th | Mid-Atlantic Regional Tournament @ DC Armory (All Teams)

January- February:

  • two training sessions per week (approximately 16 sessions)
  • Eight to ten league games in the ASA Futsal League
  • One to two scrimmages
  • One to four tournaments (approximately 4-15 games)

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 one day outside at Alexandria City futsal and multi-use courts and one day INSIDE.

VYSA and USFF/USYF have confirmed state and regional competitions will be hosted. Dates are TBD.

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. Teams will be given a decision to participate in State and Regional competitions once rosters are set.

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 Futsal ID 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 environments that offer an appropriately challenging environment and foster development.

Families will receive instructions via email from capellisport.com, one to two days after ACCEPTING a spot and registering for a position on a team.

New players must purchase new uniforms (Neon top, Black top, Black Shorts, Black Socks, Red shorts and socks are optional)

All returning players must purchase BLACK SHORTS and BLACK SOCKS. The Neon and Black jerseys purchased in the winter of 2021 remain the same. Information to purchase a uniform will be sent one to two days after accepting the invitation to join the ID team.

Uniforms cost $90-$100. The uniform consists of one neon home jersey, one black away jersey, one pair of black shorts and one pair of black socks. Please purchase your uniform before November 5th. The earlier you order the better! Please note that jersey numbers are assigned based on ACADEMY NUMBERS. Non ASA Academy players will be assigned a number at random based on available numbers within the age group. We are unable to accommodate requests for specific numbers. If your child does not have his or her uniform in time for the first game, please have them wear a neon t-shirt or black t-shirt, black shorts, and black socks.

If you need to purchase items but did not receive the email from Capelli, please follow these steps:

  • Visit capellisport.com and click “teamshop” in the top right hand corner
  • Click Alexandria Soccer Association and enter passcode ASA1970
  • Enter your child’s information and begin shopping!
  • If you are still unable to locate your child’s account, email [email protected]

If your child is a goalie, the ASA goalie gear should be visible in the “Goalkeeper Mandatory Kit” section. If your child only plays goalie, you do not need to purchase black and neon court jerseys. If you don’t see goalie gear, email [email protected]

ALL players should bring a futsal ball to practice.

At this time there is no specific training uniform, HOWEVER, it is required to wear ASA gear during training. Please review the recommended gear on the ASA capelli.com team page.

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 Futsal ID teams train together in preparation for local, regional, national and possibly international futsal competitions.

Players will undergo a 2-3 day open tryout/evaluation process prior to the start of the season. The Futsal ID coaching staff works together to identify the appropriate futsal opportunity for each player with ASA’s platform (ID team or non-ID league team). All players have an opportunity to play futsal though the ID platform is recommended only to those with the highest comfort level and ability within the game.

Each team will have eight to ten players with the possibility of a practice-only player.

If a player is selected as Practice Player, he or she will have the opportunity to train with the ID team and may have opportunities to compete with the ID team in competitions if an extra player is needed. Practice players will need to register separately for the Futsal League.

Playing time at the U9-12 level will be managed to give each player at least 50% of playing time in League play 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 Futsal ID 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 Futsal ID 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 Futsal ID 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, Futsal 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.

Team tuitions are based on number of tournaments and projected schedules. Read more about team experiences here.

  • Regional Experience | $850
  • State Experience | $675
  • Local Experience | $550

A down payment is due when a player accepts a spot on a team. Families can make a down payment of $275 or can pay in full upon registration ($135 for families receiving financial aid). Alternatively, the payment schedule can be broken into two installments (the down payment + one installment payment).

SAMPLE of an installment plan based on the fee $550 structure:

  • November 15 — $275 minimum down payment (or pay in full)
  • December 15 — Final payment due

*players who receive financial assistance can extend second payment to Jan 15th to reduce the monthly fee.

Disclaimer: Tuition is subject to change based on variables, including potential COVID-19 restrictions or policy changes.

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. You will be prompted to make a down payment by credit card or check. If your child receives free or reduced lunch and you are applying for financial aid, this payment will be deferred until after we review your application for aid.

This past year, the fees were changed to reflect an adjustment in programming due to COVID-19. Many variables factor into this year’s price point, including indoor training and additional tournaments. The incurred cost of any added 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 approved indoor at that time.

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. Invitations are sent on a rolling basis, thus your prompt reply is important so that we can finalize rosters in a fair and efficient manner. Please note that team registration must be done on a computer; it will not work on a mobile phone.

Through our Access4All program initiatives we are committed to working with every family to ensure that the tuition is not a barrier to participation. If you are experiencing financial hardship, please reach out to our Futsal staff to apply for financial aid or an adjustment in your payment schedule.

The first layer of financial support for the Futsal ID program is a flexible installment plan that extends over the course of the program to allow for lower monthly payments.  Please email Johnatan Nunez at [email protected]

Additional aid will be considered on a case-by-case basis based on household income and members of household (as reflected on the first page of 2019 tax returns). Please contact us if you would like to discuss the possibility of additional financial aid or an alternative payment plan. Financial Aid scholarships (25% off tuition) are offered to players enrolled in the Free and Reduced Lunch Program at school or who provide additional supporting financial documents.

If you are applying for additional financial aid today, your down payment will be deferred until after we review your application. On the payment page, please select the option to apply for financial aid and review the instructions.

For NEW players who qualify for Free and Reduced Lunch at school, select the option to apply for Financial Aid on the payment page. You will need to submit a photo of your child’s lunch letter to complete this application. Please continue to the payment page for more instructions.

Similar to our financial aid process, should any family experience financial hardship mid-season please reach out to our Futsal staff to request assistance. We would not want a family to have to cancel their child’s participation due to financial hardship.

If you anticipate that you may need to withdraw your child due to family medical issues, please contact [email protected] to let us know more about your situation and how we can support you in this time of uncertainty.
