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.

The regular season will start the week of December 5th, 2022 and run through February 6th, 2023. Teams will play once a week on Monday – Thursday in a league style format with a end of season tournament starting the week of February 6th, 2023.
Games will be at Blitzz FC facility in Belgrade Montana.
Footwear for the Blitzz FC facility is indoor soccer shoes or cleats. Shin guards are required.
Teams will be single gender teams unless numbers don’t allow. League formation may be co-ed in some groups depending on number of teams in each group. Teams will be built on the same birth year. If a team has multiple birth years the team will play in the oldest player’s bracket. Each team is to have a min of 6 players on the roster and a maximum of 8. Please note: If teams have less then 4 players it will be an automatic forfeit for league standings. If the game is 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 number of teams in the futsal league there may be coed games throughout the season and tournament play.
Ages: 2008 and older
Players coordinate and build teams. Players can also register individually and be placed on a team by Montana Surf. Montana Surf reserves the right to add players to teams to help facilitate full teams.
Ages: 2009 and younger
Montana Surf will build the teams prior to the season. (Players may request one buddy they would like to be on a team with but there are no assurances that these requests can be accommodated.) This helps ensure a competitive format as well as teaches the kids to learn how to play with different players. Montana Surf does ask that there is a parent coordinator to help facilitate the team. Teams will choose their own names. Teams are encouraged to make their own shirts.
