Gameplay Questions:

How is indoor soccer different than outdoor soccer?

Indoor soccer tends to be played at a much faster pace with less down time. Substitutes are ‘on the fly’ as in hockey and the gameplay is rarely stopped since the field is walled to keep the ball in play.

What is the maximum number of players allowed per team?

There is no maximum number of players, most teams have 10-12 players per team. This number allows for ample playing time.

How many players are on the field?

It varies for each age division, here is the breakdown:
10 & Under: 6 field players plus 1 goalkeeper
12 & Under: 5 field players plus 1 goalkeeper
14 & Under: 5 field players plus 1 goalkeeper
High School: 5 field players plus 1 goalkeeper
Monday Coed: 5 field players plus 1 goalkeeper (3 Women minimum on the field or as  goalkeeper)
Wednesday Adult: 4 field players plus 1 goalkeeper
Sunday Adult, all divisions: 4 field players plus 1 goalkeeper

Does my team need uniforms?

No, your team does not need uniforms. However, we request similar color shirt/jerseys for each team and an alternate color if the two team’s colors are a match.

Does my team need numbers on the backs of their shirt/jerseys?

No

How many teams are registered in ___ age division?

In years past and what we expect this year:
10U - 14 teams, 12U - 18 teams, 14U - 14 teams, High School - 18 teams
Monday Coed - 6 teams, Wednesday Adult - 8 teams, Sunday Adult - 24 teams

Will my team be playing different teams each week?

Yes, your team may play one team twice if for instance there are only six teams who register for our beginner skill level 10 & Under league (you will select from a drop down menu when registering online which skill division of advanced, intermediate or beginner you wish for your team to play in) This allows for games to be as competitive and evenly matched as possible?

Are there methods you use at the Soccer House to ensure close and competitive games?

Yes, teams select which skill division they want to play against and we have a competitive balance rule in place to keep the games close. The competitive balance rule states that if a team were to fall behind by seven goals then the team trailing can add a player onto the field. 

My team is new to the indoor game and may need extra training, do you provide training?

If you have registered a team and would like to expose your players to the game before the league begins please call or email and mention reading this in the FAQ’s section and you can receive one free one hour rental.
The field will be yours to use freely, if you want Soccer House staff to help with the practice, we can host a training session for a fee.
