I believe BCSA should create a futsal league that mirrors the outdoor league. Same leagues and districts, but smaller divisions. This is of course because futsal has smaller teams. Attach the football league to the outdoor season - find someway to make the futsal league legit (related to cups some how?) and make it a requirement for clubs to enter (or if they choose not to they can't enter cup maybe??) - have it run December-January.
I agree, run regular soccer fall season Sept to Nov. Futsal during winter Dec to Feb. Then Spring soccer March to end May with cup finals in June. After fall season teams can be re-tiered for spring season...
This way for those who want it indoor Futsal is available through the winter, and we don't deal with playing outdoors during the winter months. If you don't want to do futsal you can explore other winter sports like basketball perhaps.. This would also have less conflict with hockey.
Sure, what are the other aspects where futsal beats 11-aside?Sorry for late comment.. very late comment, but since am new to the forum, and my expertise in Dubai is that of Futsal , and futsal developement. Futsal as legend alluded to is by far the most important development tool for kids, no doubt about it.
If we go by one aspect alone, and that is touches of the ball, Futsal wins and beats 11-aside my a country mile. This is one aspect, glad to discuss if there is interest.
