Winter Futsal:

With the fall 2018 ECYSA season now kicked off, we know that people are now being asked to make plans and review their winter training and playing options.

Essex County Youth Futsal League (ECYFL - www.ecyfl.org) hopes you will consider us when making your decisions!

We are partnered with the Essex County Youth Soccer Association to bring our towns and their players the opportunity to continue play and development through the winter months.

As we enter our 4th year of operation serving town travel and recreational players, we are offering the following programs at the Athletic Center at the Pingree School in South Hamilton:

ECYFL Futsal Academy for players in Kindergarten through Grade 2 Sundays from 1:00-2:00 PM

LEAGUE PLAY for Grade 3 through Grade 8 players and teams- ECYFL offers league play in 2 (7-week) sessions on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday

Session 1 of the Academy and League play start the week of November 25.

  • Players without a team may register as Free Agents and be placed on an existing team, or a house team.
  • Each League game features 2 USSF-Certified Futsal Referees and is played 5v5 under modified FIFA Futsal rules.
  • ECYFL is town-centered and player focused. We employ GRADE GROUPS to place teams and players, not Birth Year groupings, so our town teams can stay together. We do NOT play on holidays or February public school vacation.
  • ECYFL is a fully accredited and sanctioned league by the Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association, and affiliated with US Youth Soccer, US Soccer Federation and FIFA.
  • Coaches and players who are registered with Mass Youth through their town organizations do NOT have to pay any additional insurance or membership fees.
  • In addition to the Academy and League play, we offer WINTER TRAINING and WINTER ADVANCED TRAINING programs at Danvers Indoor Sports November through March

Please register by November 15th to ensure a spot in our Session 1 programs!

ECYFL is a non-profit, volunteer-driven and -managed organization. Our Directors and staff collectively have many decades of town and ECYSA experience, many still actively involved in those organizations.
