Billings United are happy to offer Futsal to our community.
We offer both Recreational Futsal and most recently Competitive Futsal.
What is Futsal?
Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced, small sided football game that is widely played across the world and is officially recognized by both USSF and FIFA. The nature of the game places a large emphasis on technical skill and ability in situations of high pressure. Futsal is a five-a-side (four + a goalie) game, normally played on a flat indoor pitch with hockey sized goals and a size four ball with a reduced bounce.
There are a number of differences to our traditional version of small sided soccer, but the dominant elements are the absence of rebound boards and amendments in the laws that encourage and foster skillful, creative play above the physical contact that tends to be a feature of small sided games. The surface, ball and rules create an emphasis on improvisation, creativity and technique as well as ball control and passing in small spaces.
Players will Participate in two distinct groups:
7 – 14 : Teams in the 7 – 14 range may be coed. Players born in 2004 who are in 8th grade will participate in the 7 – 14 division unless they choose to participate in the high school division.
High School : In order to participate in the High School group, players must be enrolled in high school
4 – 9 pm (at least one 40 min game per night)
Sessions take place at Shrine Auditorium
Every participant registers as an individual. When they register they may indicate the name of the team they would like to participate with. If they do not have a team they may indicate the need to be placed on a team. There is a limit of 12 players per team. Additionally we are asking that players who do sign up for a team provide a roster to firstname.lastname@example.org, they may fill out the link to access a roster. Please direct all questions regarding futsal to Kevin. Register below.
In this program we are offering instruction and coaching to all participants. Our coaches will be teaching from a Futsal specific curriculum designed to enhance their players technical ability, tactical awareness, creativity and decision making. Players will have the opportunity to travel and compete in Futsal competitions.
