Want to help launch a new sports league? Still room for teams, says Queen City Futsal League co-founder Ashlee Henderson:
Queen City Futsal League will be launching its first season this fall and we couldn’t be more excited! The sport of futsal is the way the world plays indoor soccer. It is played on a hard surface (think basketball court) with out-of-bound lines rather than arena walls. It is played by more than 12 million people, in over 100 countries, on all of the continents in the world. Futsal has become a rapidly growing phenomenon in the United States, especially in places like Los Angeles and Portland. We want to pave the way with our league being the first of its kind in Seattle.
For the past year, we have been hosting drop-in futsal nights (both co-ed and women’s), as well as putting on tournaments, and we’ve learned that there is a real demand for an actual league. This first season will be co-ed, held on Sundays at the Salvation Army (in West Seattle – 9050 16th Ave SW), and we’re hoping to have 10 teams of 10 players between the ages of 18-40 years old.
Futsal is an ideal environment for developing one’s soccer game, but more than anything, it’s just fun and it creates community! For more information, you can check us out at hoodvshood.redpodium.com/queen-city-futsal-fall18.
If you have any questions, know of any players that might be interested in playing, and/or know of any businesses that might want to sponsor us or be a part of our league, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As explained on the QCFL website, teams are co-ed, age 18 and up.
