Want to work on your game, but no one is available to play? It’s raining out, but you still want to practice? Drop by for a pick-up game or just to kick the ball around and get some runs in.


  • FIRST COME FIRST SERVE! (Walk-in Registration)
  • Only $10.00 per player

Here’s how it works:

  • Teams are formed.
  • Team 1 and 2 start playing. Remaining teams (3,4) wait on the sideline.
  • Winner stays on the court.
  • If there's a tie, Team 1 and 2 go off and wait on the sideline and Team 3 and 4 come on.
  • If one team wins three games in a row, they come off - rest.
  • If two teams are eligible to come on – rock, paper, scissor will determine the decision game of choice winner goes on, loser is on deck.
  • The more you win, the more you play.
  • The cycle repeats itself for the evening.
  • There’s no referee but there’s a staff person to help resolve disputes and make sure things run smoothly.


  • Players: Men and Women, 14 & up (18 and under must have parent sign waiver).
  • Ball: Futsal size 4 regulation.
  • Number of Teams: 2minimum, 5 maximum /per field.
  • Number of Players: 5v5
  • Length of Game: varies (5 - 7 min)
  • No referees. Players control game as a group. 
  • Boundaries: Lines. All restarts are kick-ins, no throw-ins. Corners are on.
  • Restarts: 4 seconds to restart or change possession. All restarts are indirect.
  • Fouls: all slide tackles are fouls. All hand balls are fouls. All fouls are indirect.
  • Players must resolve disputes amongst themselves. Remember that you only have some minutes to play, so arguing over trivial matters such as possession works against you.

CFA has a “ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY” for fighting.
