Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced, small sided football game that originates from South America in the 1930s. It is widely played across the world, and is the small sided football format that is officially recognized by both UEFA and FIFA. Ever heard of Messi or Ronaldo, Ronahldino or Neymar? These are some of the very best soccer players in the world that credit futsal as a huge part of their development and reason why they became the player they are today.

Futsal is a game of imagination and creativity, deception and lies, that uses teamwork and synergy to outscore the opponent. Players are required to manipulate and master the ball, invade and exploit space in a high pressure, high reward environment. Subsequently futsal is an excellent breeding ground for football competencies that can be translated into the 11-a-side format of the game.

Futsal is played on a smaller, hard court, mainly indoors. It is played with two teams of five players, one of whom is a goalkeeper. Unlimited substitutions are permitted which allows the game to remain at a high pace throughout. Futsal is played with a smaller, low bounce ball on a court delimited by lines. These rules all encourage the games emphasis on improvisation, creativity and technique. 

In partnership with United Futsal along with our 41,000 sq/ft indoor facility with four futsal-sized courts, we are set up to develop some of the best youth futsal teams in the nation. Click here to view the official press release.

United Futsal Player Placement/Try Out Information

CRYSC 8U-15U (2013-2006) United Futsal

Once you fill out the Interest Form the Director, Danny Woolliscroft, will reach out with more information about the selection process and program overview.

Selection Process/Overview

The selection process for CRYSC futsal teams will begin with the interest form. Next, the Director of Futsal Programming will collaborate with age group directors of coaching from all five Rapids Youth regions. From this, tryout invitations will be sent to players that fit the futsal player profile from local Director recommendations. The coaching staff will select a full-time roster for the three events in the calendar year (Regionals, Nations and Worlds) and players will compete in all three. The futsal program will offer players the opportunity to play at the highest level of youth futsal competition in the US, therefore will require a very high commitment to training and additional player development.  

These teams will train mainly on selected Sundays leading up to each event at The Eddy and various indoor and outdoor futsal courts in the Denver Metro area. Out-of-state travel should be expected for the selected futsal teams with the west conference being hosted anywhere in the west (Las Vegas 2020/21) and nationals and worlds.
