Posted by ALBANY-BERKELEY SOCCER CLUB on Sep 19 2016 at 04:42PM PDT

Registration CLOSED. Please contact info@abscSoccer as a few roster spots may open up prior to the season. Futsal season is January 7 to March 8.

Our Futsal Program is designed to keep players active between seasons while working on foot skills and game decision making skills. Kid-directed, no coaches or coaching. 30 min ABSC trainer led practice, followed by 20 min half game refereed by trainers.

Cost: $140 with early bird discount (late fees apply Dec 1)

Season: Jan 7 to Mar 5 Saturdays and/or Sundays (8 weeks; no game President’s weekend Feb 18/19) with optional outdoor skills clinics once a week (day/time TBD)

Deadline: Dec 12 registration closes (again, late fees apply Dec 1)

Teams: Under-6 co-ed; Under-7 to Under-19, boys and girls; 6-8 players; required Team Parent for communications (no coaches/coaching)

Format: 5 v 5 with 30-min pregame warm-up/practice run by ABSC trainers, followed by game of 20-min halves refereed by trainers. Again, no coaching, games are kid-directed to improve game decision making skills (2009-2011 teams can have a parent to help with subbing, if needed). No weekday practice. Optional outdoor skills clinics offered (likely MWF/time TBD).

Team Formation: Our Futsal Program is team-based. To organize a team, please ask friends, classmates and/or your current teammates to come up with a roster of 6-8 players and a team name. Each player will then register/pay individually, requesting the team by name. Players without a pre-organized team are encouraged to register. ABSC will add them to teams needing players, but placement is based on roster availability.

Team Parent: Each team must have one adult to sign up (free) as ’Team Parent ’ who will be asked to provide the team name and enter the roster of expected players.
