SPORTING IOWA INDOOR FUTSAL LEAGUE

The IFL is a winter, indoor small-sided soccer league, using Bownet goals (predominantly with no
goalkeeper) and a weighted Futsal ball on a basketball-size court. Players register individually and are placed
on teams by the Director, Corbin Stone and Sporting Iowa staff. Players are placed on teams to create
developmentally-appropriate soccer environments and challenges. Some age divisions may be broad-based,
players may play in a different age group, while others may be placed in multiple age-group settings. The
league is designed to place players in challenging, competitive circumstances with different players than
current teammates. Each session will have a theme. Players are permitted to miss matches and play-dates.
