Special Event! We are hosting games this Saturday at a "True" futsal facility. Since we had to pay an additional fee for this location we are limited the sessions to 1:00 hour. This court is about 33% larger than the church gym. We will be playing 6v6 which includes the keepers. We will field 7 players per team and fielding 2 teams. If we only get limited interest we may combine sessions. So please watch this event closely as we will make changes to ensure we using the time we have to the fullest.
Tardiness will not be acceptable for this event. If you are late you WILL get a NO SHOW even if you get to play. Be READY to play 15 minutes prior to the event. Teams will be made and we will start and end on time. This also means that the first session will stop on time. If you No Show for this event we will see you in the spring when we play outdoors.
There is a water fountain but plan on bringing your own water just in case. Please do not bring sports drinks as if these are spilled they create a sticky mess.
IF YOU ARE ON THE WAIT LIST, IT'S YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO CHECK AGAIN AT 8am ON GAME DAY TO SEE IF YOU MADE THE GAME. If you make the game and are not there, you will be issued a No-Show Yellow Card. If you can't check, don't put yourself on the wait list. NO CRASHERS IF RSVPs ARE FULL!!!!!! You will be turned away! If you do not get into the game and you are on the waitlist you will get first crack at this same event the following week. We want to ensure everyone gets a chance to play.
10:00am Start Time! Bring flat soled non-scuffing shoes, and a Green shirt, White shirt, and Orange shirt, so we can match up even squads. Futsal is a short sided game played with a size 4 ball (smaller than outdoor), and the ball barely bounces. The result is a primarily surface based game, with short passes. The ball not bouncing makes it VERY difficult to kick the ball with any power, most would be hard pressed to kick it the length of a basketball court in the air! Many that play Futsal enjoy it even more than outdoor soccer! After playing Futsal a while, your outdoor game will be vastly improved, especially your ball striking!
Playing slots are given to Paid Players ONLY. Also know that we have a STRICT RSVP policy due to a cap on the # of players we can accommodate at our indoor facilities. We are more strict on RSVPs for our indoor games, please be respectful of the policy and your fellow players. NO CRASHERS IF WE HAVE A FULL GAME!!! When a player no-shows, it leaves us shorthanded at the game, so please be considerate of those that want to play but can't because of the slot you reserved with your "YES" RSVP. Because of the limited # of slots, crashers almost never going to play unless someone gets injured. Also, please do not show up late, nor leave early, for the same reasons. If you can't be here the whole time, just let someone else play instead!
Players: Please do NOT come into the gym with the shoes you wore outside, it drags snow, salt, and sand into the gym! Please change shoes in the hallway. I'll be HANDING THE BROOM to anyone that comes into the gym with wet shoes (I'm not kidding!). Show respect for your fellow players (so they do not get hurt slipping on a wet spot), and for the Church that is allowing guests (us) to use their facilities! Please do not risk us losing this gym!
Lastly, if we have 2 consecutive sessions, do NOT sign up for both sessions, choose one or the other. If you play in the first and there is room in the 2nd you can stay, but we want everyone to have an opportunity to play.
