They have operated for the last half of the decade and boast some of the best futsal courts in the province with Cambrian College and Laurentian University hosting weekly games. With the exception of completing a pre-course workbook, provided by Futsal Sudbury, there are no pre-requisites for the course and anyone is welcome to join.
