IMPORTANT COACH INFORMATION
There is no coaching license 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. There is no cost to register a coach.
Coaches with multiple teams
Central Virginia will accommodate coaches with multiple teams by scheduling them with back-to-back games at the same facility as much as possible. We have been very successful in the past, so we encourage you to split your outdoor teams into two futsal teams.
Before each game, a pre-printed game card will be available from the referees. The cards will be populated with player names and numbers. Please check the cards for accuracy and then hand them back to the referees before the game begins. At the end of each game, the referee will hand the bench coaches the completed game cards. The coaches are to sign the cards and in doing so, verify the score. The scores on the signed cards are official and will be entered into the standings.
Competition Format & Rules
Official futsal FIFA Rules and Regulations as stated under the Laws of The Game will be enforced. Exceptions are noted below under House Rules.

When the team manager inputs a player into the roster, an e-mail is sent to P/P/G with instructions as to how to complete player registration. There is no fee for managers, coaches, or assistant coaches, unless they are also players.
Central Virginia will institute the issuance of player cards. To be eligible to play, each player must have a card. Player cards are issued only after full payment of fees, signed Medical / Media Release forms have been received and all players have been registered online. Central Virginia will conduct a team check-in one - tow weeks before league play begins to issue player cards. Players do not need to be present. Check-in time and place will be announced.
Players/Sister Teams/Double Rostering
1) A sister team is created from an outdoor team that split into two or more futsal teams. If you have a sister team in the league, you may borrow any amount of players from the sister team.
2) Players may be double - rostered on non-sister teams only with knowledge and permission from both coaches.
Player cards and rosters may be checked before games. This is to assure that all players are registered and the league remains sanctioned by US Soccer. Team managers are to carry the game cards with them for inspection before games.
Central Virginia will provide game balls for all competition.

Games Cancelled by opponents
If an opponent cancels a game or does not show for the game, the other team may use the scheduled game time for their use. There are no refunds for games cancelled by opponents. If a team must cancel, call Central Virginia 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 $75 reschedule fee is in to Central Virginia.
At time of registration, each team is allowed multiple conflicts if entered into registration system before registration deadline. If manager does not enter conflicts, no reschedules will be made unless a $75 rescheduling fee is received by Central Virginia. Central Virginia will schedule 8 games for each team. We will attempt to reschedule games that have been cancelled due weather, such as snow, ice or due to the facilities cancelling games. While we will try to reschedule those games, we cannot guarantee that those games can be rescheduled. We only can reschedule games if the facilities have available times to reschedule them. If we reschedule games due to above, you will not be asked ahead of the rescheduling process if you are available for the make up game. Your team will be given a makeup game time and if you cannot make that, we will not reschedule.
Games cancelled by Facilities / Central Virginia
We reserve the right to postpone or cancel games at any time for any reason such as bad weather or facility problems. Cancellations are very rare events, so teams should plan on playing. If there are games cancelled, reschedules are not guaranteed and refunds for cancelled games will not be provided.
