The Registration "Youth Indoor League" is not currently available.

Youth Indoor League

The Youth Indoor League is an "in-house" recreational soccer program for youth players  between the ages of 8 and 14.  Boys and Girls divisions are offered, and players of all skill levels are encouraged to participate. 

The focus of the league is to provide youth soccer players with additional playing opportunities in the winter months where they can have fun, learn more about soccer, and improve their skills and confidence on the field.

There are no team practices in Youth Indoor League, only games.  Games are played on Sunday afternoons (or early Sunday evenings) between January and March.

Games are played under the following format:

  • Game Length - 40 minutes (two 20 minute halves)
  • 5 vs 5  (4 field players + GK)
  • Magic FC club Futsal rules in effect (see document below)

Players and parents are encouraged to organize their own teams, but individuals wanting to play who do not have a team are welcome to sign up as "unattached/free agent" players.

COVID-19 Rules for Spectators

Parents and guardians will be allowed into the facility to watch Youth League games this season.  However, the following policies will be expected to be followed to maintain compliance with the safety guidelines of the State and the playing facilities.

1. Limit Crowd Sizes

For each player, we are requesting that only the immediate parents or guardians come to watch the games.  This means no more than two spectators per player, but ideally only one parent should attend to minimize crowd sizes.

2. Wear a Mask

All spectators must wear a mask while they are watching games. 

Players should wear a mask while in the building lobby, or when suiting up for the games off field.  Once players are on the field playing or warming-up, they can play without a mask on.

3. Spread Out / Distancing

Parents will be allowed to watch outside of the main spectator/bleacher area.  By allowing parents to stand near the fields to watch the games, we hope to avoid crowding issues around the bleachers and to successfully implement some social distancing. 

We would like small groups of roughly 4 people to watch from each corner area of the field.  In these corner areas, parents should be able to spread out without interfering with gameplay.  The remaining spectators can then watch from the bleachers (and possibly the balcony) without experiencing overcrowding.

See the field map below for an example of spectator areas near the field.

4. Allow Groups to Transition Between Games

There will be a 10-15 minute buffer between each round of games.  During this time, each group should have sufficient opportunity to transition on/off the field without creating traffic jams in the lobby and field areas.

If a team is waiting to take the field to warm-up, please let the team from the previous game completely leave the area before moving on.   There should be open spaces around the batting cages and putting greens where the team's can distance while waiting for the previous teams to exit.

These rules will be subject to change as the season progresses.  Depending on how things evolve, they could be relaxed or become more restrictive.  We will not have someone going around acting as the COVID police, so we are asking that everyone does their part to comply with the guidelines that are necessary to keep everyone safe and allow us to have a soccer season this winter.
