BC Soccer FREE Futsal Festival

BC Soccer is thrilled to announce its inaugural free Futsal Festival which will take place January 4-5, in partnership with the University of Fraser Valley (UFV). The festival will create a fun, educational environment that not only demonstrates how to play and teach the game of futsal, but also highlights the FIFA Festivals model, adapted for the game of Futsal by the BC Soccer Grassroots Development Department.  The free festival is open to U9 and U10 teams and will take place at the University of Fraser Valley, Envision Athletics Centre. 

Over the past several years, BC Soccer has held the Provincial Futsal Championships annually in January. While these championships were fun and very popular, BC Soccer noticed that for most people (players and coaches alike) this was the first time they had ever participated in futsal.  Changing the format from a Provincial Championship to a festival will give young players and coaches the opportunity to learn the skills and strategies of futsal in a fun, educational environment which they will then be able to build on year after year.
