For the first time in Saskatchewan Games program history, Futsal will be included on the sport calendar of the 2022 Saskatchewan Winter Games!
Futsal is the only version of the indoor game recognized by FIFA. It is played 5-aside on a smaller, hard court surface, with a low bounce ball that allows each player to make technical and tactical decisions in a productive environment that still encourages the physical and social elements associated with soccer.
Saskatchewan Soccer Association's goal is to field U15 (players born in 2007/08) female and male teams in each of the nine Districts for Sport, Culture & Recreation. 2022 Saskatchewan Winter Games team selections are open to all participants and are operated in partnership with the Districts. Information on player ID Camps and evaluations will be made available later in the year once coaches have been selected.
The application process for coaches for District Teams is now open. Coaches are required to hold a minimum C-Licence for the 2022 Saskatchewan Winter Games, but there is no futsal experience necessary to apply and coaching education will be available leading up to the event. The deadline to apply is March 15th, 2021.
