Introduction

The game of Futsal is a fun, fast-paced game of soccer played indoors, traditionally on a basketball court.  There are five-players aside consisting of a goalkeeper and four players on the field.  The recommended number of players on each team is 8-9 players.  Below are some most frequently asked questions regarding Futsal.

  1. What age group should my child play in?  For the best Futsal experience, your child should play in the same age group as they did during the Fall outdoor season.  For example, if your child played for a U10 team, then they should play in the U10 Futsal group.  Futsal recognizes that some players will be 10 years of age by this time, but our objective is to keep existing teams together.
  2. What is the difference between competitive and recreation division?  The competitive category is generally for the player who has played on a competitive soccer team (traveling team) in the past.  If your child has only participated in your league's recreational soccer program, then they should play in the recreational division.
  3. My child wants to play Futsal but is not on a team and does not have a coach.  Sign your child up as an Individual Player, and we will place him/her in a group based on their age, gender, and level of play (Rec or Competitive).  Our Marin Futsal Academy is an excellent spot for new and returning players.  Refer to our website for more information.
  4. My child is on a team with a registered Marin Futsal coach.  How do I make sure my player gets on the right team?  When you register your child, if his/her Coach has already registered, you will be able to choose the coach's name from the dropdown menu.  If you do not see it, then type the Coach's name in the space provided on the form.
