LEAGUE COST: $675 per team ($650 per team if signed up by Nov 2nd) + $13.50 USYF Player Fee that is paiid separately via parents receiving a player invite to that "x" league team (8 to 9 regular season game + end of season MINI TOURNEY event for those top 4 teams, or placement games for 5th place and beyond).
*** EXPLANATION OF FACILITIES USED - Please understand that Louisville Futsal and its futsal winter league utilizes 5 different facilities, one in particular that has two futsal courts and a possible other location with up to 3 courts available. All other locations will only have one court. We also utilize both Saturday and Sunday as game days, but weekday (evening) games will be considered also to accommodate conflicts that occur over the weekend, or to keep up with the demand as it looks to grow again this year with additional teams anticipating to sign up; 100+ team expected this season.
*** ACCOMMODATING / AVOIDING CONFLICT POLICY - club winter soccer training, along with a few special requests (winter tournament events and ODP). Those ppl signing up the team, please take a look at the winter schedule so that you can notify the League Schedule Coordinator (Rob Iliff) dates to avoid. If the Schedule Coordinator is not informed at the beginning of season regarding dates with conflicts changes will be almost impossible, or you can't expect the schedule to be changed last minute.
*** Everyone is going to have to share the responsibility of playing at each facility on either day. We will try to create a pattern of location and game dates so that your team isn’t all over the place throughout the 3 months. We will do our best to execute. For example, U11 and younger, the facilities to expect for sure to play at, both UAW facilities off Chamberlain Lane, Fern Valley Road, as well as Tom Sawyer Park. U12 thru U14 can end up at any of the 5 facilities we rent, but the U15 teams and older will more than likely play games at the Top Gun Tennis facility.
*** PUBLISH GAME SCHEDULES - 3-4 WEEKEND WAVES, AND HOPE TO EXECUTE THESE WAVE OF SCHEDULES 2 WEEKS PRIOR TO THAT FIRST WEEKEND OF THE 3-4 WEEKEND WORTH OF SCHEDULES. WE HAVE A PROGRAM THAT WILL FILTER NOT ONLY GAME MATCH UPS, BUT SCHEDULING GAMES FOR "x" NUMBER OF WEEKS THE LEAGUE WILL LAST.
*** Louisville Futsal is the only futsal league in the City of Louisville sanctioned by USYF, who is supported by US Soccer. We employ only USSF / Futsal certified referees for our games, or previously certified referees getting re certified again.
