Youth Play Fall Phase 2014 – Get Regular Touches With Vancouver Futsal’s Youth Futsal Program!
Vancouver Futsal is proud to implement Fall Phase 2014 of the Vancouver Futsal Youth Play structure for teams from across the Lower Mainland. The goal for this program is to have young players play futsal matches in a competitive environment, learn more about the game, and reap the benefits that it offers on a consistent basis.
Teams will participate in 3 monthly Jamboree format nights. Each night consists of 3 futsal matches. The 2014 Fall Phase will run from September to December.
Richmond Olympic Oval – Play monthly on Monday or Tuesday Nights
Fortius Sport Burnaby – Play monthly on Friday nights
The age groups that this program will be offered to will be as following:
* Please note that spots per age group are limited.
Wanting to play in Richmond? Teams will be required to choose between playing on a Monday or Tuesday night at The Oval. Mondays run from 5pm to 8pm and Tuesdays run from 6pm to 9pm.
Wanting to play in Burnaby?
Teams will play Friday nights at Fortius Sport. Fridays run from 5pm to 8pm.
Once you pick the night of the week your team will be placed in a group of fitting skill level/age/gender . Your group will then be give three consecutive phase dates of play.
Example: U13 Boys – Monday Night – Richmond – September 15th, October 20th, November 17th
Our intention is to offer this program as an addition to teams’ training schedules once per month, or in replacement of one training session per month. This is the reason why we offer Youth Play on two separate nights of the week.
Vancouver Futsal is committed to providing its Youth Play at a price that is affordable to all youth teams. Each team that registers will play a total of 9 futsal matches over the three nights. The total cost for this Youth Play phase is $540. Based on a 12 player roster, each player would be paying $45 for the program, or the equivalent of $5.00 per game!
