FAQ

Still have a question about our youth tournaments? Read our FAQ first:

Waiver: does everyone needs to sign a waiver?

Yes, every parent or legal guardian must sign our waiver online for their kid(s). Players will not be allowed on the field without it. Start by creating an account as a parent (enter your personal information, not that of your kid), and add your kid(s) at the end of the process. Note: Coaches or team manager cannot sign the waiver for their team. Please forward the waiver link to the parents.

Fields: what size are the fields?

Our 5v5 fields are FIFA Futsal regulated dimensions. Typically, we feature fields 85 – 90 ft in length, 50 – 55 ft in width, and 15 – 20 ft in ceiling height. Goals are 6 ft by 10 ft.

The fields are enclosed with rebound walls and enclosed in netting. 5-a-side soccer is played “off-the-wall”.

Check-in procedures: what documents should I bring?

Teams must check in 30 minutes prior to their first game and show an official roster and passes for all players – including guests players. Birth certificates can be provided instead of player passes if the team is not sanctioned.

Footwear & Equipment: what do we need to bring?

Footwear: we strongly encourage to use turf shoes as this is the most comfortable and safe footwear to play on turf. However, we do allow non-metal cleats to be used on our fields.

Jersey: teams must bring 2 sets of jerseys.

Ball: games will be played with a Sofive 5-a-side ball, which is slightly smaller and heavier than a regular size 5 ball, but not quite a Futsal ball.

Shinpads: all players must wear shinpads.

Featured rule: what's the goalie box rule?

Only the keeper is allowed in the box and he cannot exit the box:

  1. Only the defending goalkeeper is allowed to play the ball inside the goal area and only he/she may handle the ball in this area
  2. A defending outfield player can enter his own goal area but cannot deflect/play the ball in his own goal area. If he/she does so, he/she will have a free kick awarded against his team
  3. An outfield player entering his opponent’s penalty area will be penalized. The game will be re-started from the goalkeeper
  4. A goalkeeper gaining or seeking to gain an advantage by leaving his area or by playing the ball when it is outside the area will have a free-kick awarded against his team

No pass back to the keeper:

  1. The goalkeeper has a maximum of 5 seconds to return the ball into play
  2. A teammate receiving the ball from the goalkeeper may not return the ball directly to him – the ball must first be touched by another teammate or an opponent
  3. A free kick will be awarded to the offending team from the place where the defending player returned the ball
  4. Goalkeeper cannot pick up or touch with his hands a back pass

Featured rule: can we sub on the fly?

Substitutions are unlimited during the game and can only be made with the referee consent

  1. Outgoing substitutes must leave the field of play before the replacement enters the playing area
  2. The oncoming players are active immediately and can receive the ball
  3. Substitutes must stand outside the pitch perimeter and spectators must not enter the field of play under any circumstances. A change of goalkeeper must be authorized by the referee

Schedules: when are the schedule disclosed?

The tournament schedules will be emailed to the coach/manager 3-to-5 days before the tournament. The timeframe of the tournament (which generally run for 3-4 hours) will be emailed one week before the event. As a general guideline, youngest age categories tend to run earlier in the day.
