Welcome to YMCA Futsal
The sport of Futsal was created by YMCA’s in South America in the 1930’s
Futsal is a 5-on-5 version of soccer that is played indoors on a basketball style court with a low bouncer ball, smaller goals and NO use of sidewalls! This version of indoor soccer is FAST, FUN, FRIENDLY and brand new to our YMCA Soccer Program and to our entire YMCA of Central Illinois association thanks to a partnership with Footworx 5-A-Side.
This is an exciting opportunity for kids who may be new to the sport of soccer, as they can thrive in our futsal league because it will be utilized as a developmental opportunity focused on skill development, ball control, and body awareness. Children who have experience in soccer can also thrive in futsal as they further improve current skills and develop new ones.
All levels of players are welcome. Players sign up individually and we assign teams that can be competitive with one another. Each game is 40 minutes long broken into 2 x 20-minute halves. Games are played on Tuesday-Thursday evenings and weekends.
