Futsal Foundations Registration
The cost to participate in each Futsal Foundation Festival is $150/ team (2 games), and this fee includes the opportunity to attend the Pre-Season Coach Education event free of charge!
Futsal Coaching Clinic
The TSA is pleased to offer all coaches participating in the Futsal Foundation Festivals the opportunity to learn more about the great game of Futsal before their teams set foot on the court. The FREE coaching clinic will explain the rules, tactics and nuances of the game of Futsal and will serve as a great introduction to the game. The clinic will take place at the La Liga Futsal facility as follows:
Tuesday November 8: 7.30-9.00pm
Coaches MUST register to attend. To register, simply email our League Administrator Taylor Endrody at TSALeagues@torontosoccer.net stating your team name/ age group/ gender and the number of coaches from your team that will be attending!
This form should be used to register all interested teams:
The following information needs to be understood:
1. While teams can complete the form and pay the fee to the TSA, the form MUST be signed by the Club Administrator to ensure they have your approval to participate.
2. Once paid, the team registration fee is 100% non-refundable. This is to discourage last minute withdrawals which cause havoc with scheduling.
3. All coaches must have full age related certification and processed coaches books.
4. We will make an announcement about player books within 7 days.
5. Each entered team can carry a total of 20 players BUT only a maximum of 10 can participate on game day.
6. The large squad size is to encourage club participation with the smaller game day roster to promote adequate playing time.
7. Space in each Festival is limited so early registration is strongly advised to avoid disappointment.
8. Additionally, registration for each festival closes 2 weeks prior (again subject to availability)
Registration is now open!
