The CHYSC sponsors an Indoor Soccer program that runs from January through mid-March.

Our Indoor program for 2019 will include boys and girls groups /teams from U8 – U14, which includes players born in 2011-2005.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW:

The season will run from early January through early/mid-March.  This program provides instruction from professional futsal trainers in conjunction with our CHYSC volunteer coaches to help develop superior foot skills and high speed decision-making.  Each weekly 90 minute  session will include 60 minutes of skill-building activities followed by 30 minutes of fun-filled scrimmaging.

Scheduled days can vary by age group and will depend on the availability of our volunteers.  Days and times are currently to be determined.  Venues will likely include Springside Chestnut Hill, Germantown Friends and Pennsylvania School for the Deaf.

Some teams may also enter in futsal or other sanctioned indoor soccer leagues.  That registration would be over and above this registration.  Participation under the CHYSC banner in any league depends upon registration in this futsal training program.

Schedules are to be determined. We are coordinating gym space, trainer availability, Chestnut Hill volunteer coach availability and will have to adapt to our registration numbers.  The bulk of the training sessions will likely be scheduled weekly for Saturdays or Sundays, but some sessions might be run on weekday evenings. Some age groups may be split into two different groups, meeting at different times, depending upon the numbers.  As details come together, they will be posted here.

Registration will likely close around December 15 or when we reach capacity.   The fee this year will be $150 per player  Fees are due at the time of registration.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS:

Goals of the program are to balance skill development with competitive play, to be economical, and to be local (to minimize travel) as much as possible. While players (and parents) love the competitive play, we consider skill development to be of primary importance for the winter Indoor program, especially at the younger ages.

The Indoor program is structured around skill development and Futsal.  Futsal is played on a hard gym floor (not artificial turf), uses a ball with less bounce, and does not involve playing off the walls.   There is a possibility that some age groups might have their sessions at an indoor turf soccer facility.

ABOUT THE TRAINING:

The program will include training sessions / clinics, the majority led by an outside professional trainer. This education and focus on development is the core of the program, and the most valuable piece for any player who wants to improve their soccer skills. Training and clinics will take place primarily on Saturdays, but some age-group clinics will take place on weeknights. (Specific days/times by age group will be published shortly. Some age groups may be combined as necessary for the training sessions).

Registration fees will include a Club-standard reversible pinnie. Full uniforms will not be provided. Players are required to wear shin guards at all times. Indoor soccer shoes are preferable to sneakers.
