October 21, 2021-Not playing last winter because of the pandemic, the futsal leagues affiliated with the Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA)––New York Futsal and the Long Island Futsal League––are back for the first time in two years.

To kick off all the fun, both leagues are co-hosting a Futsal Fest Tournament being played at the Massapequa Field House, across the street from Field of Dreams.
 
Both boys and girls will be playing on Saturday, December 11. Each team will play four tournament games that are 25 minutes long.

The Long Island Futsal League, celebrating its 25th anniversary, will continue to play its games starting in January at gymnasiums in central Suffolk County but has added league play in Nassau for the first time ever. In Suffolk, all games are on Sundays.
 
All games are on Saturdays for Under-9 to Under-19 at the Massapequa Field House in Nassau County.  If the Saturday session fills up, then Sunday will be open for league play as well.

New York Futsal is putting together plans to return this winter in gyms across Manhattan and will have a link for team registration and private training soon.
 
“Futsal is a great activity for young players,” legendary player and now coach Jurgen Klinsmann stated. “They have a chance to get a lot of touches on the ball and to learn how to play in tight spaces. There’s a certain amount of creativity in futsal that is good for kids to experience. We want our younger players to be playing as much as possible, and futsal also offers that opportunity in the colder months of the year.”
 
If your child is not playing in an ENYYSA-affiliated league, then they are not covered by our insurance, and chances are, they are not covered by any insurance. You can tell which leagues are affiliated as the certified referees will be wearing US Soccer patches. Always ask about the insurance coverage before registering your child and team.
 

With approximately 100,000 youth soccer players––both boys and girls––and more than 25,000 volunteers, the non-profit Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) stretches from Montauk Point, Long Island to the Canadian border. Members are affiliated with nine leagues throughout the association, which covers the entire state of New York east of Route 81. ENYYSA exists to promote and enhance the game of soccer for children and teenagers between the ages of 5 and 19 years old, and to encourage the healthy development of youth players, coaches, referees and administrators. All levels of soccer are offered––from intramural, travel team and premier players as well as Children With Special Needs. No child who wants to play soccer is turned away. ENYYSA is a proud member of the United States Soccer Federation and United States Youth Soccer. For more information, please log on to http://www.enysoccer.com/
