SOCA Futsal Leagues

Futsal is the only FIFA recognized and internationally accepted indoor soccer game. 5-a-side games played to court lines roughly the size of a basketball court. It requires players to be skilled on the ball and quick of feet and mind. The action is fast paced, goals are numerous, and creativity and foot skills are rewarded throughout the match. Through the SOCA Training Center in Ruckersville, SOCA is pleased to offer Charlottesville and the surrounding area a place to play this international game. Get your team together now and sign up for the upcoming league!
