VFA launches Youth Play Futsal League
The Vancouver Futsal Association will launch the YPFL this upcoming season after a successful pilot project launch
The YPFL – Youth Play Futsal League – is the lower mainland’s first and only competitive futsal league. It’s goal is to promote development and help players learn and improve through competitive, fun, and consistent futsal play.
The Vancouver Futsal Youth Play Futsal League’s mission is to provide an outlet for Futsal for youth teams across the Lower Mainland funded by contributions from sponsors. Futsal is a key factor in youth development as players are confined in smaller spaces, with a smaller ball and are forced to play quick, make faster decisions, and use their skill to beat opponents. We feel that Futsal needs to be a consistent part of the youth player’s training and playing schedule. We compare this to some of the top football nations in the world’s regimes such as Brazil, Argentina, Italy, Spain, and Germany. Our goal is to provide competitive, fun, and beneficial futsal matches for teams approximately twice per month over the course of their normal soccer season.
The VFA has run the Youth Play Futsal Program since 2012 and the new YPFL is here to offer a more consistent and structured futsal environment for the Lower Mainland’s Youth. The league will offer a more competitive environment and therefore be more beneficial to skill development and enjoyment levels.
