Futsal is a fast-paced indoor game that allows players the opportunity to improve their footwork and become more comfortable with the ball. The game demands quick reflexes, fast thinking, and good ball control. The fast pace of the game encourages creativity, quick decision-making skills, and is fun for people of all ages.
Futsal is one of the finest teachers of the beautiful game. Many professional players credit futsal as the X factor in their technical and mental development. Soccer and futsal are two slightly different sports that share many aspects, such as mastering the ball, combining, and making quick decisions. It is estimated that futsal players get 600% more touches on the ball than in a full-field outdoor match.
The indoor, close space games allow players the opportunity to score multiple times throughout a game in an exciting environment. The offside rule does not apply to the game of futsal. Futsal allows each player a lot of quality time with the ball in a fun and safe environment. The game is intended to foster creativity and fun for each player in a relaxed environment, away from coaches and the formality of a standard game scenario.

Players need to form their own teams and submit the team members to MT Surf during the registration process or email list to email@example.com.
League formation may be coed in some groups depending on the number of teams in each group. If a team has multiple birth years the team will play in the oldest player’s bracket. Each team is to have a minimum of 5 players on the roster and a maximum of 8. Please note: If teams have less than 4 players it will be an automatic forfeit for league standings. If the game is a forfeit you will play a non-league game. Games need to be played with the same number of players on the field. Example: team A has only 3 players, then team B needs to play 3 players on the field not 4 or 5 vs. team A.
Based on the number of teams in the futsal league there may be coed games throughout the season and tournament play.
