ADV REC Winter Futsal League


  • Futsal (Portuguese pronunciation: [futˈsal]) is a variant of association football that is played on a smaller field and mainly played indoors. It can be considered a version of five-a-side football. Its name comes from the Portuguese futebol de salão, which can be translated as “hall football”. It was developed in Brazil and Uruguay in the 1930s and 1940s.
  • In Brazil futsal is played by more people than football but does not attract as many spectators as the outdoor sport. Several futsal players have moved on to careers as successful professional football players.
  • Futsal is a game played between two teams of five players each, one of whom is the goalkeeper. Unlimited substitutions are permitted. Unlike some other forms of indoor football, the game is played on a hard court surface delimited by lines; walls or boards are not used. Futsal is also played with a smaller ball with less bounce than a regular football due to the surface of the pitch. The surface, ball and rules create an emphasis on improvisation, creativity and technique as well as ball control and passing in small spaces.


  • Quick reflexes, fast thinking and pin point passing
  • Develops precise ball control and technical skill, agility, lightening reflexes and decision making.
  • As the balls have less bounce they tend to stay in play longer and promote close ball control.
  • Playing in enclosed areas develops creativity.
  • Futsal quickly develop skills required for soccer: – balance, motor ability, agility and co-ordination, ball mastery, accurate and quick passing and receiving, perception insight and awareness.



  • General aim of developing soccer skills, knowledge and appreciation of futsal, team play and good sportsmanship.
  • Our goal is to have players (and parents) learning about futsal.
  • Winter Futsal emphasizes learning soccer skills and the rules of the game, working with a team, and building social, physical, and emotional readiness for the game.
  • Final objective: develop a core set of values including teamwork, challenging one’s abilities and knowledge, and the enjoyment of participating in an active and demanding sport.


  • The idea is to have an in-house league with invited guest programs if interested.
  • League in which we can have total control of the rules, competition level and game schedules.
  • No scores are kept and posted.
  • Games are treated and considered “friendly scrimmages” allowing coaches and referees to “instruct” and “educate” players during play time.
  • Keep it affordable with a reasonable cost-benefit program.
  • Match teams to compete at their appropriate level of competition. Teams may play an age division up or down.
  • Guest players within the same organization may be used to play at the same age division or up but, not down.
  • Competitive players registered with other organizations are not allowed to play in the Select Winter Futsal, unless with prior arrangements made with our program Executive Director (email).


  • Promote an enjoyment of the game while instructing and teaching the game of Futsal.
