Winter Futsal Program

Last updated: Aug 2019

Program Description

The 2019-2020 Ottawa TFC Futsal program is an all-new format! The league is split into two entirely separate seasons: a Fall Season running from October to December and Winter Season running from January to March. Players can register for either of the seasons, or both. Teams will be balanced, with trained coaches, qualified referees, in a fun league where all players spend a lot of time playing. Please note below that some game nights for Futsal have been adjusted: depending on your division, you play on Friday night or Sunday night.   

Futsal is the F.I.F.A. recognized 5v5 format of indoor soccer. Basically, it is the globally recognized form of indoor soccer, played all over the world, including at professional and international levels. It's also played here at our club in local gyms. Futsal is not only fun, but also a great way for players of all ages to develop their technical skills with the ball.
