Winter Season

What is futsal?

Futsal, officially recognized as the 5v5 indoor soccer variant by FIFA, is played on a hard court without walls, using a smaller, low-bounce ball. This sport stands out as an exceptional tool for honing soccer technical skills. The playing surface, unique ball, and rules of futsal place a strong emphasis on improvisation, creativity, technique, ball control, and precision passing in tight spaces. Notably, it provides more ball touches than any other soccer activity, continually challenging players to make quick decisions on the field.

Countries such as Brazil, Argentina, and Spain, known for their remarkable success in international soccer, have embraced futsal for many years. Today, an increasing number of countries and clubs, both in the United States and beyond, are recognizing and giving the sport the attention it rightfully deserves.

Types of futsal events

During the Winter season, we have one main event, included in your club fees. Event details will be posted on your TeamSnap page once they are scheduled. Teams can expect one event per week throughout the season, typically comprising:

  • Futsal practices: Your team will either have individual team training sessions or may join  with another team, depending on the number of participants.

What to bring

At every futsal event, remember to pack three essentials: shin guards, a water bottle, and flat-soled shoes. These flat sport shoes can be any type, like sneakers or tennis shoes, although we recommend using futsal-specific shoes, which are essentially soccer cleats with a flat sole for the best performance.

In case of inclement weather, such as rain or snow, we kindly request that you bring your event shoes in a bag and put them on before the activities start. This simple step helps us maintain dry and safe courts, reducing the risk of slipping.

And here's the best part: you don't need to worry about bringing your own soccer ball. We'll provide futsal-specific balls for all our events.

Winter leagues - Winter 2023/2024


We've made the decision to enroll our teams in the Wide World Sports Center (2140 Oak Valley Dr, Ann Arbor, MI 48103) leagues for the upcoming Winter season, which will run from December through mid-March. The leagues will take place on Friday evenings, Saturdays, and Sundays. Wide World Sports Center offers several advantages, including competitive pricing, a convenient location, and suitable competition for our teams. Notably, we've confirmed the inclusion of referees this year, which is an addition from the previous winter season.
To make this process easier for our coaches and managers, we have decided to take registration through our website at a flat rate of $135 per player for 6 games (see below). This fee includes coaching.

-Strict deadline is for registration is November 30th or until the roster is full.
-Players from outside the club may register
-Season starts December and runs through the mid-March; as soon as the schedule is finalized it will be released. 
- While we strive to accommodate all boys and girls who wish to play on our teams, placement depends on the availability of spots in your respective age group. Our team offerings and the number of available spots were determined based on the expressed interest in participating in the winter league via the Google Form distributed to club members.
- While we make every effort to assign teams coaches they are familiar with, please note that coaches are not contracted to coach teams during the winter season. Consequently, it may not always be possible to have the same coaches as in the past. Rest assured, we will continue to provide dedicated and skilled coaches to guide and support our teams during the winter season.
