How We Play Indoor Compared to Futsal


How We Play Indoor Compared to Futsal



What is Futsal?

Futsal is a FIFA recognized game that is played as 5v5 players, with one player being a goalkeeper, on a small sized player area or court. The game can be played outdoors, but is normally played indoors on a special surface. Futsal specifications are: 

  • A full-sized Futsal court is 40m (131 feet) x 20m (66 feet), with penalty areas, center circle, and substitution zones
  • Goals are 3m (10 feet) x 2m (6.5 feet)
  • The ball used is a size 4 special low-bounce ball
  • There are two periods of 20 minutes with time stopping at every dead ball
  • Between the two periods, there is a break of 15 minutes
  • Each team may use one timeout per half, which lasts one minute
  • Substitutions are unlimited and are made on the fly without the game stopping

The full Futsal Laws of the Game can be found by CLICKING HERE


How Region 498 Plays Indoor

We use Liberty Middle School (LMS) and add temporary lines to make the Futsal court. Indoor specifications are:

  • The Futsal court at LMS is approximately 95 x 60 feet, and the goals are 3 x 2 meters (9.84 x 6.56 feet)
  • The penalty area shape modified to make it easier to place the tape
  • All ages play 5 v 5 players and can have a maximum of 10 players on the roster, but we prefer 7-8 players which allows more playing time
  • No goalkeepers are allowed at 8U and younger, but there are goalkeepers for 10U and older
  • A standard Futsal ball is used for 8U and older, and a slow roll ball is used for younger players
  • We play two periods of 20 minutes with a running clock, with a halftime break of 5 minutes
  • We do not use timeouts, but we do allow unlimited substitutions on the fly

We have limited gym time, so game slots are one hour each. We have 5-15 minutes warm-up/pregame + 40 minutes playing time + 5 minutes halftime break = 50-60 minutes; which means the smallest delay has big effects by the end of the day's game.

Indoor Age Divisions

Indoor Age Divisions

All indoor age divisions are coed. The chart below shows our age divisions. Depending how many players register, some divisions may be combined. 

Understanding the "U" in the Division Name

Reading the division name can get confusing. The way the division names are written and the way they are read are completely different. For example, in the chart below, we have the division name written such as 10U. The letter "U" means Under. By looking at the division name, one would think to read it as "10 and Under" meaning players that are age 10 are included in this division. However, this is incorrect. The proper way to read the division name, such as 10U is "Under 10" which actually does not include players 10 years of age; but rather under 10 years of age. 

Indoor Player Equipment

Indoor Player Equipment

Indoor player equipment is similar to outdoor soccer.


  • Indoor players use the same uniforms as other seasons
  • If your player's uniform still fits from the last season they played, the same uniform can be used
  • If your player needs a new uniform, email [email protected] to receive an invitation email from

Shin Guards

  • Shin guards MUST be worn and completely covered by socks


  • Normal tennis shoes or sneakers are fine, but special Futsal shoes are also acceptable


  • We ask that players DO NOT bring their outdoor soccer balls to the gym; we provide Futsal or low bounce balls


  • Please bring plenty of water!
  • We ask that everyone refrain from bringing Gatorade or other juice drinks into the gym 

Game Schedule


2 Dec 2023

  • Coaches must take Foundation of Futsal 1 (Online) on AYSOU before enrolling for the part in-person course
    • 1 hr online course

  • A block schedule will be published mid-Nov allocating each Age Div a time slot
  • Division Coordinators run their session to include:
    • Introduce Futsal specific skills
    • Team forming and balancing, for Divs that form teams (typically 8U through 12U)
      • 04U and 06U are Fundamental Motor Skills sessions
      • Divs that don't form teams will play pick-up style games

 Game Schedule

  • Final game schedule will not be published until after the 16 Dec pre-season activities, when the number of teams is confirmed
  • The schedule is planned to be a block system from youngest to oldest through the day:
    • Block system is all 8U games in one block, then all 10U games in next block, etc.
    • Ideally, each team only plays 1 game each week, if there are an even number of teams
    • Exceptions:
      • Youngest to oldest sequence may be adjusted to fit the timings (e.g. instead of two 12U games on Sat and one 12U game on Sun, all 12U games may be scheduled for Sun)
