What is Futsal?
Futsal is a fast-paced, high-scoring, exciting brand of indoor soccer, which builds soccer skills like no other indoor soccer game. Each team consists of four court players and a goal keeper, plus substitutes. Futsal is the only form of indoor soccer recognized by FIFA, the worldwide governing body of soccer. One of the most rapidly growing indoor sports in the world, futsal is played by over 30 million people. We play real futsal refereed by USSF certified officials.
The Midwest Select Youth Soccer League currently has two divisions, the outdoor middle-school league (U12-U15, grades 6-9), which operates in the fall and spring, and the futsal league (U10-High School, grades 5-12).
Participating organizations have a strong voice in how the league is operated. Each participating organization sends a representative to the League Governance Committee. Resolutions passed by the committee go to the Midwest Select Soccer Board of Directors for ratification.
Coaches are required to pass a background check before the team is allowed to play.
