North Shore Futsal League

OUR FUTSAL

Our futsal league will be played on a hard court with futsal-size goals (2x3 meters). While we will not have all the exact elements of professional futsal, we will have what is necessary to develop; the hard court for fast play, the heavier ball so the game is played on the ground, and the small space with limited players so the game is in constant transition.

We will play fast futsal, encourage the quick movements on/off the ball, and praise creative solutions while introducing the basic rules/nuances of the futsal game.

Players will register as individuals and the coaching staff will assign them a team at each session. This gives us the opportunity to balance teams as we launch the league. Games will be at either the Robert Crown Gym or on Quad Indoors Sports’ new court.

Games may be 5v5 (futsal standard) or 3v3 based on the total number of registrants for like ages. Age groups/genders may be mixed based on total number of registrations.

TESTIMONIALS

Messi, Pele, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Neymar, Jr. all played futsal. They all praise the game’s speed of play and tight spaces for developing their ability on the ball, quick thinking, and dynamic movements.

“I played futsal growing up …In futsal you need to think quick and play quick, so it is easier for you when you move to normal football.” ~ Pele

“Futsal has been very important in my life. In developing my technique, quick thinking, [and] short movements. I think futsal is fundamental in a footballer’s career. It was very important in mine.” ~Neymar, Jr.

WHO CAN PLAY?

Anyone! You do not have to be a Team Evanston or CFJ North Shore player. If you want to play, are committed to the team, listen, and do your best/work hard, you can play.

HOW ARE TEAMS FORMED?

Coaches will review the registrations to balance teams so each division will have enough players of relative age/level to compete. The mixing of rosters will create a new dynamic for players to grow their role and contribution to the team.

WHEN WILL WE KNOW OUR TEAM? OUR SCHEDULE?

Teams and schedules will be announced closer to the start of the season. Schedules will be kept in the Sprocket Sports app. Games will not be added to TeamSnap.

WHY PLAY FUTSAL?

The result is a fast-paced game where players work hard transitioning from attack to defense since both goals are always close to the play on the smaller court. Coaches of all ages recommend this game for player development as the heavier ball keeps the ball on the ground. The hard court, combined with the tight space, creates an environment where players must make quick decisions and use both feet.

WHO COACHES THE TEAMS?

Teams are managed by the staff members listed above. We will aim for consistency with the coaching staff, so players are hearing the futsal instruction from the same coach. Futsal teams and coaches will not be the same as their usual soccer teams.
