Youth Futsal League FAQ
What teams usually register to play in City Futsal Leagues?
City Futsal offers leagues for all teams and registrations are open to any that want to play. For that reason we offer multiple divisions to accommodate teams that are at different stages in their development. Our customers range from outdoor soccer clubs and REC teams to experienced and developing futsal teams. Futsal is a great sport for all teams to participate in. The fast pace of the game as well as the ball used and surface played on lend to the physical and mental development of all athletes.
What is the difference between the Academy Futsal League and the Premier Futsal League?
There are two differences between the AFL and PFL;
1) Court Size:
AFL games are played on an Academy sized court, and PFL games are played on an olympic sized court.
2) Playing Level & Age:
AFL is open to teams U6-U15, beginner to advanced. The PFL is offered to teams U11-U18, Division 1 outdoor teams and experienced futsal teams only.
How should I register my team, what division should I register them into?
It is recommended to register your team into the same division that your team plays in their outdoor league. Here is a guide that could help you further decide which division your team should register into;
-REC and developing club teams who play their outdoor league at a bronze level or lower and have a basic understanding of the game should register into Division 3.
-Teams that have a strong understanding of the game, have developed basic skills, and are competing in competitive outdoor leagues above a bronze level or teams looking for more of a challenge should register into Division 2.
-Experienced outdoor soccer teams that play in the top division of their outdoor leagues or experienced futsal teams looking for strong competition on the court should register into Division 1.

What is the referee fee and is it included in the team fee cost?
Referee fees are not included in the team fees. For AFL games each team must bring $10 cash to pay the referee before the start of each game. PFL games are $15/team/game.
