FUTSAL @ THE EDDY
Rapids Youth Soccer offers futsal leagues nearly year-round at The Eddy. Each 6 or 7-week season of futsal within the facility offers the chance to continue your growth as a soccer player with a consistent game time and location.
According to a FIFA report, “an average 40-minute futsal game, a player will touch the ball roughly every 29 seconds, or 80 total touches.” Now compare that to a 90-minute outdoor soccer game where players only make around 30-40 touches. In futsal, players make double the touches in half the time. As a result, the game places considerable demand on technique, movement, and tactical awareness.
Futsal Team Registration: We recommend a team of 7-10 players with an established Volunteer Parent Coach register for their specific day and time on the futsal schedule. This allows for the most consistency and success for the league. Coaches or Team Managers can take the lead on registering the team and collecting fees from the interested players.
