AUFC Winter Futsal 2022/23

October 14th, 2022 by admin

AUFC is excited to announce a new program we will be implementing this Winter, 5v5 futsal! All games will be held at The ARVC Center (7800 Los Lomitas Drive NE, Albuquerque, NM 87113) for ages U8-U19. See flier for more details!

The Winter Futsal Fives is designed to keep ALL participating players’ touch on the ball in top shape without any drop off due to any inactivity over the winter break.

The Futsal ball is a bit heavier than a regular soccer ball of the same size, which encourages increased ball control, heightened dribbling skills, short and accurate passing, and all the elements of the classic Give & Go…all techniques and skills that can be easily embedded in the players’ muscle memory and then transferred to outdoor soccer in the Spring. Since it is formatted in a 5v5 (4 + GK), even Goalkeepers will get to keep and sharpen their skills.

The AUFC T&T WFF Sessions I & II are open to Boys/Girls/Co-Ed teams from U9/10 through U17/18/19.

ALL participating players MUST be currently registered with the NMYSA for the 2022-2023 Soccer Seasonal Year, with a valid Player Photo Pass Card.

The WFF is open to any team from any club/league, as long as the (2) conditions above are met.

The WFF is NOT a tournament, but a “Participate, Compete, Enhance Your Skills, and Have Fun” league. All Match Schedules will be constructed in a Mix & Match format where Boys, Girls, and Co-Ed teams will all compete against each other. There will be NO age/gender specific “brackets.”

The maximum Team Roster limit is (10) players – with at least two players who can play as GKs.

Teams are encouraged to use guest players, again as long as they are currently registered with the NMYSA.

Each team is guaranteed a minimum of (8) matches over the course of Session-I – two back to back Saturdays and Sundays, nicely sandwiched between the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, and again in Session-II, in mid to late January 2023.
