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.

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 sports, which 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.
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.

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.
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 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.

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."
