Futsal Program Information
Due to the current situation with Covid-19, MD United FC will not be hosting a Futsal Program this year. More outdoor programming will be offered this winter.
In a traditional year, the U8-U18 Futsal program is designed to improve technical skills, game understanding & decision making in tight spaces and a fast-paced game. The program will consist of training sessions and tournaments and will avoid conflicts with current team programming.
Past Practice Locations: Indian Creek Upper School, Annapolis Area Christian School
Dates & Times: TBA but mostly on Sunday evenings & Saturday afternoons (will not conflict with MD United team program calendar)
Tournaments: (all local tournaments, no overnight stay required)
To be finalized as we approach the Winter months
- December: December tournament
- January: Maryland Futsal State Cup or January tournament
- Optional: 3rd local tournament ADD ON FEE
Maryland United players do not have to tryout, but must register and will be placed on the appropriate team.
Non-Maryland United players will be allowed to participate in the futsal program. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an evaluation.
