Sporting Iowa Indoor Futsal League
Our winter indoor futsal league registration is now open. This is the third year that Sporting Iowa, JUSC, and WDMSC have partnered to offer the program. It remains a different kind of option for other indoor soccer competitions in the area. Futsal is fast becoming one of the most popular and relevant games for developing individual skill and small-group tactics where decisions both on and off the ball need to be made quickly and frequently. It is an integral, mandated part of the US Development Academy Program. The biggest news, though, to highlight is our exclusive access to a turf facility at Metro Ice Arena. This is where we plan to do all of our sessions.
Similar to last year, we will continue to take a different approach to set up the league; it is more individualized and player-centered. Players register individually and then are placed on different teams throughout the sessions. The overall intent is to place players in varying, challenging circumstances where at times they are asked to play outside of their comfort zone perhaps across gender, age group, and team. Throughout, the coaching staff will be there to help guide the players and teams. Sometimes, we may collect data during games that provide insight into how each player is performing. Since this is a player-development oriented league, we will demand players to make their own decisions with minimal instructions from the sideline during games. For more details, please review the Sporting Iowa Indoor Futsal League flyer.
Player registration for the 2004-2011 birth year (9U-16U) ends. Schedules and rosters will be sent out before December 1 for the entire series of game-dates (December-March).
Players need not attend all play-dates and games. All games will be played on Sundays during an allotted time of 40-90 minute blocks of time between 12:00 pm - 9:00 pm. Most of the older players will take later time slots.
Cost is $175 for at least 10 guaranteed games (we intend on offering a longer duration of games this winter) and small rosters.
All games played at Metro Ice Area in Urbandale.
See attached flyer for more information on dates.
We recommend you register quickly as we will close registration when we are at full capacity prior to the registration deadline.
Do not wait, we will fill up!
Look forward to seeing you in December!
