Age Divisions/Groups

Boys & Girls U7 - Adult.

619 Futsal reserves the right to drop or combine divisions or age groups.

Team Registration

Season Play

Teams will be scheduled to play 8 games.  All games will be played on Sundays.



There is no coaching license needed to coach a team. Any adult who is registered with the team as a coach or manager can sit the bench.  This is a great option for teams with outdoor coaches who want to take a break, but still want their teams to have fun and play.


Coaches with multiple teams

619 Futsal will accommodate coaches with multiple teams by scheduling them with back-to-back games as much as possible.  If you coach multiple teams, you must enter this information in the registration system when you register.


Game Scorecards

Before each game, a pre-printed game card will be available from the referees. The cards will be populated with player names. Please check the cards for accuracy before the game begins. At the end of each game, the referee will sign the completed game cards. The coaches are to verify the score before leaving the game. The scores on the signed cards are official and will be entered into the standings.

*In the event that the U12 and U13 age groups are combined, games will be played with the size 3 or Select Jinga Jr ball.

Forfeited Games

If a team fails to show for a scheduled match, the referee shall allow a 5 min grace period. After the 5 minutes, if the team has not yet arrived or does not have enough players to field a team (4), the game clock will begin.  If ten minutes have passed since the scheduled game time and 4 players are not present, the game will be forfeited. The game will be tallied as a 3 to 0 loss for the forfeiting team and a 3 to 0 win for their opponent. 

If the referee terminates a match for reasons other than an act of God or field conditions, the 619 Futsal Directors will decide the result of the match after hearing the official reason from the referee, and both coaches. 

** Forfeit Fee:  There will be a $35 fee due for any game your team forfeits.  This fee will be deposited into an account for the forfeiting team’s opponent and will be used as a credit for their future registration fees.

Ejections - Red Cards

If a player is ejected from a match, the player’s pass together with a referee’s report of the incident shall be turned over to the 619 Futsal administrator by the referee. 

The minimum penalty for an ejection is that the player shall not be permitted to play in the immediate next match. 

The maximum penalty, after review by the 619 Futsal Directors, may result in the individual players or teams’ expulsion from the competition. 

If a player is ejected from a match the referee will hold onto the player pass, document red card on the back of the score sheet and present it to the League administrator. The player will have his/her pass returned after a one game suspension. 

Coach Ejections

If a coach is ejected from any match, a referee’s report of the incident shall be turned over to the League administrator by the referee. 

The minimum penalty for an ejection is that the coach shall not be permitted to coach or remain on the player’s bench in the immediate next match. 

The maximum penalty, after review by 619 Futsal Directors, may result in the individual coach or team’s expulsion from the League.

Games Cancelled by opponents

If an opponent cancels a game or does not show for the game, the other team may use the game time.  If your team must cancel, call the league (619-977-0862) as soon as possible so we can notify the referees and give the other team a chance to plan accordingly. Cancelling a game not only short-changes your team, but your scheduled opponent. Games cancelled by teams will not be rescheduled until the $50 reschedule fee is paid. 


At time of registration, each team is allowed one guaranteed conflict if entered into registration system before registration deadline.  You may enter a second date at the time of registration only if you are willing to play double headers.  Reschedules will not be made unless a $50 rescheduling fee is paid to the league. This helps pay for the additional court fees and referee fees.

Games cancelled by 619 Futsal

We reserve the right to postpone or cancel games at any time for any reason such as bad weather or facility problems. If we do decide to cancel games, refunds will not be provided.


If you have an interest in joining the 619 Futsal referee pool, please email us at To be eligible for consideration, you must be licensed with US Soccer as an outdoor referee.
