If you are looking for something to do for your team during the winter:

     Hello Coaches!

*We invite you to our 2010/2011 season of Futsal San Jose.
We expect it to be our best season ever!
Our season last Winter was a huge success with almost 90 teams from Palo 
Milpitas to Gilroy participating (boys and girls, U9 to U16). Our games are
played in different gyms in San Jose on Saturdays and mostly Sundays from
December to the end of February. We are ready to run this season with
100 teams.

We are planning to run a sizable portion of our games on a real Futsal 
with correct markings. We will also have a larger portion of games on
Saturdays. The registration fee is $525/team if you register by November 
6 and
$575/team until December 4 when registration closes. Register your team 
to secure your team a place in the upcoming season. As in past years we 
may not
be able to accommodate all teams so please send in your registration today.

The registration information for this winter season is now on our webpage:

This year we will make a special effort to start a U8 group for boys and 
on normal sized fields, with normal goals and a referee. For questions
regarding U8 please contact our U8 Director Annette Reavis
annette.reavis at gmail.com . We have also decided to run games for the older
age groups with 2 referees instead of just one.

If you have any questions please let me know.

Greetings, and see you soon on the court!

Looking for some fun for your team during the winter season? Then you
found the right place! We are starting our fourth winter season in

Try the game that Pele and Ronaldo played: Futsal/Five-a-Side. It's
the world's official indoor soccer game, played within the existing
side and end lines of a basketball court without the need for
sidewalls or artificial turf. The term, "Futsal," is derived from the
Spanish, "futbol sala," meaning indoor soccer. It also is referred to
as indoor five-a-side. In the United States, it originally was
referred to as "minisoccer."

Futsal is gaining rapid popularity in the U.S. because it adapts so
well to existing facilities. For instance, it is now being played in
gymnasiums throughout the country by the Boys and Girls Clubs of
America. Anywhere you have a basketball gym, from Key West, Fla., to
Ketchikan, Alaska, you can play Futsal, and you can play it on outdoor
courts, as well.

Futsal is one of the world's great skill-developers for youth players.
Pele, Zico and Socrates of Brazilian World Cup fame grew up playing
the game, and Brazil's recent World Cup stars, Romario and Bebeto,
have played it extensively. Ronaldo played it until he was 16. Futsal
is an ingeniously condensed version of the outdoor game that preserves
the outdoor game's true time and space relationships. The
ball-handling speed and skill and quick thinking of Futsal translate
directly to the outdoor game - around both goals and in the thick of
midfield battle.
