Q. Who can play Futsal?

Open to all skill levels. Some games will be Boys, Girls, or Co-ed. It really depends on the players that sign up for each session. BFC staff will do its best to create games that are balanced by ability and age.

Q. When do games start?

We will start the first game at the time posted for this event. When you arrive, please check in with the BFC Staff. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your session start time so that you can stretch and warm up. To run a great game, it is important for players to be ready to start on time.

Q. Why do coaches move players to different teams?

In order to challenge players but also increase development and opportunity, players will not always play on set teams but on varied teams in order to allow for different player roles and challenges. BFC professional coach’s will monitor and place players in order to create a challenging and even match each week. This format is great for combining playing time and great fun.

Q. Why is my player in goal?

Some session may have full-time keepers that want to play in goal the whole session other teams may have to use field players to play goal. BFC Staff will monitor and rotate players on each team to make sure players take turns playing goalie.

Overview- Boys and girls sign up as team or individually for a one hour, one day a week session. Signing up for multiple sessions is allowed and encouraged to increase development during the winter. On game days’ teams of 6 players will be formed to play 5v5 with keepers. Players and teams could be adjusted by BFC Staff to insure the games are challenging and fun.
