New River United will once again host its Winter Futsal League at Gateway Baptist Church for the 2020 season. Our partnership with Gateway Baptist Church continues to grow as they provide us with a beautiful gym that includes a rubber tile surface (floor was used in the 86’ Olympics), concrete bleachers for spectators and a scoreboard. We will also be adding a boom box this season, so we can play music in-between games.
What is Futsal:
Futsal is a great way for players to stay active and improve their skills over the winter break.
-Futsal is a 5v5 game and it is played on a smaller and faster surface.
- Players get more touches on the ball and have to make faster decisions when they have the ball as compared to an outdoor game on a larger field.
-There is out-of-bounds, so players can’t kick the ball off a wall, and the ball is weighted so it does not bounce.
-Players are forced to use their foot skills in order to have success in a match.
-Games are two 20-minute halves with a 5-minute halftime.
-We aim for 7 players per team.
-Players are rotated equally so everyone gets the same number of minutes.
-We use scrimmage vests for uniforms to keep the cost of registration down.
-Competitive and Rec Divisions
-Age Group Divisions starting at U8 up to High School
-Competitive Matchmaking and Team Construction
***All training groups are designed to be skill-level appropriate. Individual changes will be made if needed.****
Monday Night: High School Age Groups Cost to play is $80 for the season. NRU will offer technical training sessions (unless we need to fill those time slots for more games due to growth) on nights for all age groups below high school normally on Tuesdays and Thursdays. To register, please go to our “programs” tab on the website, and under Winter Futsal League, there is “youth registration” and “adult registration”, select one of those and it will guide you from there.
Tuesday/Thursday: Futsal Training Sessions
Friday/Saturday: Game Days
We look forward to another great season with games, music, and fun!
