THE FINEST FACILITIES AND THE BEST, MOST BALANCED FUTSAL COMPETITION IN MINNESOTA! 

We are THE ONLY futsal league in the Twin Cities sanctioned by United States Youth Futsal and affiliated with United States Soccer. We employ only US Soccer futsal certified referees for our games. The Minnesota Futsal League is the only league that provides 2 referees for U14 and older teams. We think it is critical that the older age groups have 2 experienced officials to call the game properly.

MINNESOTA FUTSAL LEAGUE 2020-2021 SEASON

****  Updated 12/30/20

To our Minnesota Futsal Families,

Hello Minnesota Futsal Families,

We hope you all enjoyed the holidays and we want to start by wishing you all a safe and healthy New Year.  As you are aware, the Minnesota Department of Health has updated their guidance for youth sportswhich includes a resumption of league matches to begin as early as January 14th. 

As such, we are excited to announce that Minnesota Futsal League will be returning to league play on January 16th.  The updated schedule will be sent out to the team managers no later than January 8th.  

While the majority of our Covid Protocol is unchanged, there is one major adjustment that all teams will need to plan for.  In accordance with MDH guidance and Executive Order 20-81, all players will now be required to wear a mask during the match.

  • Types of face coverings can include a cloth mask, a neck gaiter, a scarf, a bandanna, or a religious face covering. CDC recommends using two layers of fabric when making a cloth face covering. Face coverings that are made of thinner single-layer fabric such as certain types of masks, scarves, neck gaiters, or bandannas may not be as effective for blocking droplets that come out when speaking, coughing, or sneezing and should not be used unless there are no alternatives. 
  • A face covering must cover the nose and mouth completely. The covering should not be overly tight or restrictive and should feel comfortable to wear. 
  • Any masks that incorporate a valve that is designed to facilitate easy exhaling, mesh masks, or masks with openings, holes, visible gaps in the design or material, or vents are not sufficient face coverings because they allow droplets to be released from the mask. 
  • Face Covering Requirements and Recommendations under Executive Order 20-81

For further information on wearing face coverings during sports activities please review the following information from the American Academy of Pediatrics COVID-19 Interim Guidance: Return to Sports

Our Return to Play Plan has also been updated with the above modifications.  We know this will be an adjustment for everyone and appreciate your support as we all get through this together.

 

Thank you,

Minnesota Futsal

As for our 2019-2020 Finalists that were ready to compete in the Championships prior to the league suspension due to Covid, we have decided to name each team Co-Champion of the 2019-2020 season.  We know everyone would have loved to play the matches on the court, however we feel that this is the fairest way to recognize the great season each team had while also maintaining the integrity of the competition.

Looking for a Team?

If your club team isn't playing in Minnesota Futsal this winter, no problem.  We can help!  Click the link below to register your player.  We will work with the futsal community to either add you to an existing team or partner you up with other players also looking for a squad.  Invite a couple friends or teammates and we can make the process even easier.  While we can't guarantee placement, we'll do our best to make sure each person can play the beautiful game this winter.

TC Sala Academy Development Center

TC Sala Academy and Development Centers are back for another Year!

 
Minnesota Futsal is proud to announce that we are continuing our TC Sala Academy and Development Centers for the 2020-2021 season!
 
TC Sala Academy is THE ONLY certified USYF Academy in the state of Minnesota.  The Academy trains throughout the year and competes in the USYF Academy League as well as a few select Regional/National tournaments.  We are completely club neutral and our players represent many of the top clubs and programs from around the state of Minnesota.  We were recognized as one of the top Futsal Academies in the country last year having 8 teams qualify for the USYF National Championships in 2020, 4 of which advanced out of group play, 2 reached the semi-finals, and one lost in a penalty shootout in the National Championship.  We are ready for another year of development and can't wait to see our kids competing on that stage again.  Players will need to attend a tryout to be selected for an Academy Team and tryout dates will be posted shortly for Oct-Nov.  We are planning to field teams for boys and girls from U9-U18.  
 

TC Sala Development Centers are the foundation of TC Sala and support training environments all around the metro.  Each Development Center will include 1.5 hour training sessions for kids that are looking to further develop their futsal skills. Sessions will focus on individual development and include best-practice training techniques used with our USYF National Teams. Whether your focus is making the USYF National Team or just improving your overall game, this is a great opportunity to learn from some of the top futsal instructors in the area. All sessions will be led by current United States Youth Futsal National Coaching Staff member Brian Catrine, 'The Maestro' Fernando Jimenez, UNW Head Coach and USYF National ID Staff member Greg Wheaton, or former United States Mens National Futsal Team Captain and current USYF National Coaching Staff member Todd Dusosky.

We are extremely excited to have such a talented coaching staff and look forward to developing the future of futsal in Minnesota!

Player Safety and Background Checks

Thank you for participating in USYF.

Power of Protection: As of August 1, 2018, USYF is proud to announce our new Player Safety Initiatives.

USYF now requires all staff members, registered coaches, and team managers take the U.S. Center for SafeSport.org online course link which covers sexual abuse, hazing, bullying, emotional and physical misconduct, and the new, mandated by law reporting obligations. You will receive a code to take this course for FREE and the link after you register. Upon completion of the SafeSport Course, you will need to upload your Certificate to your USYF coaching profile.

In addition, USYF now mandates national best of breed background checks for all coaches. As part of the organization's focus on player safety. USYF has selected Reference Services (RSI) through Stack Sports/U.S. Soccer Connect for Background Checks.

"A player's safety on a futsal court is of paramount importance to our entire organization," said Jon Parry, Executive Director and founder of USYF. "We want to set the highest of standards. The online training is free for USYF coaches and staff and the national background checks cost $10.00. Working together, we will provide the safest environment and raise the standards for futsal in America."
