WHO WE ARE
Futsal Kingston is an approved club by SOSA. The Club has the following objectives:
- To promote and develop the game of futsal within its boundaries
- To help individuals to develop their character as resourceful and responsible members of their community by providing opportunities, through the game of futsal, for their mental, physical, social, and leadership development.
By facilitating competitions across the greater Kingston area, we believe the sport on its own will help to further develop player’s technique, ball control and passing as the game allows for 10x more touches on the ball than an average soccer match. Our league structure for mini, youth and adult levels will allow players to play regular futsal matches throughout the fall-winter seasons at a recreational level. Futsal Kingston enforces all FIFA Futsal Laws of the Game with certified officials only. Minor adaptations to the game are made for mini- and youth futsal.
WHAT IS FUTSAL
Futsal is FIFA’s official indoor game which is played on a hard court surface in a gymnasium. This game is played 5v5 with boundary lines and a smaller ball with less bounce than a regular soccer ball due to the surface. The surface, ball and playing area creates an emphasis on technique, creativity, ball control, and dribbling/passing in smaller spaces. Many of today’s professional players have attributed futsal as the reason for their successes as soccer players. In many Latin American countries, children under the age of 12 begin to play futsal before they play soccer.

WHAT WE OFFER
Futsal Kingston aims to offer youth and adult leagues operating throughout the fall and winter seasons. Where Ontario Soccer hosts a provincial championship (Ontario Futsal Cup), Futsal Kingston will encourage the winners of each division to take the opportunity to enter the tournament. Currently, we operate a Men’s divisions but would invite any interested clubs to contact us to arrange official futsal friendly matches.
