Winter 2020-2021 Indoor Programs

Sudbury Youth Soccer is pleased to offer several soccer program opportunities to our players each winter! The current offerings are listed below by grade levels. We want to emphasize that they are entirely optional, and do not count in any way in the player evaluation and placement process.

The current 2020-2021 winter indoor programs will be held in Sudbury at The Field House and the schedule can be found here.

Safety continues to be our top priority as we transition into the winter season. While the Field House performs state level guidelines, SYSA is requiring additional steps to help ensure the safety of our players and staff which are described below. 

  • No spectators allowed during sessions-Drop off and pick up only
  • Limited session participant sizes (7 players per Futsal Team and 12 players per Development School)
  • All players must wear masks and have an extra mask on hand
  • All players bring their own ball and hand sanitizer
  • By sending your child, you are self certifying that your child is healthy
  • Additional filtration systems in place at the Field House
  • No cross over of players between sessions. We will allow time in between sessions with no occupants on field space
  • Coaches will sanitize equipment between sessions
  • Physical distancing when possible

Futsal: 3rd – 8th Grades:

Futsal is a game played between two teams of five players on each side. One of the five players is a goalkeeper who unlike soccer/football is very active out on the field. The game of futsal is played on a hard court surface with flat lines on it like a basketball court for the boundaries. It is played with a smaller ball (futsal ball) that has less bounce than a regular soccer ball. To be great at the game of futsal you need to have great improvisation, technique, creativity, ball control and heightened awareness.
