Here’s one way to avoid being trampled by a gang of wild turkeys (aka, shoppers) on Black Friday – play futsal instead!

With no school and a turkey-and-stuffing food coma to shake off, Black Friday is a perfect day for futsal! Games are fast-paced and played 5v5 with goalies on hardwood courts.

Please register and we look forward to seeing you on the court soon at the Black Friday Stampede. Thank you!

2020 Covid-19 Adjustments

Objective: run a fun and safe futsal event for kids and prevent mall-related tramplings and coronavirus spread.

General format: each team will play 3 games back-to-back (24 min games with 6 min breaks in between), and then be expected to leave before new groups arrive.

Safety measures and steps to limit large groups:

  • Standard Covid safety protocols – if sick, stay home, temperature checks, hand sanitation, avoid contact, masks required when not actively playing and encouraged (but not required) when playing.
  • One parent spectator per participant. Masks required. Siblings permitted but discouraged.
  • Free flowing entry and exit lanes to avoid congestion and contact with staff (gate fee will use the honor system)*
  • Staggered start times to reduce the number of people coming and going at once.
  • Schedule designed for minimal movement of teams between courts/benches (while still ensuring three games against three different opponents).
  • Schedule designed to allow each court to have one :30 minute break every two hours for evacuation of teams, cleaning of bench areas, and arrival of new teams.
  • No award presentations or apparel booth.

*Gate fee of $5/adult, $3/child, or $10/family can be paid by Venmo to before, during, or after the event, or you can drop cash into the cash box.
