Winter in SF is all about getting off of the grass and indoors, or on turf. This February, SF Youth Soccer is excited to present the inaugural winter 5v5 games. December and January clinics were all about skill development and focused on the players confidence and ability with the ball and now we are progressing into game play.
February 5v5 will be all about play and playing the futsal / indoor (without walls) / street soccer way. For this variation of soccer, you need to have improvisation, technique, creativity, ball control, and heightened awareness. All of this will come in the form of fast-paced, small-sided games.
All of our SFYS clinics include scrimmaging, but February 5v5's will be all about playing scrimmages. Winner stays on-type approach to the games for your player to get excited about scoring goals, beating defenders, and being creative.
Each week style points are given to players who use previous SOTW (skill of the week) skills or use their own. At the end of each week we will have our most stylish player award given out and a focus on them and their team.
Due to limited field space and high demand, we have created 45 minute slots for each age group. Each slot only has 30 spaces!
This clinic is on offer to all players who want to try futsal / indoor / street soccer. We have a fantastic turf field and will be playing by futsal rules. Players who are playing in any San Francisco city leagues are also invited to join.
Your player will be in a group of 15 (maximum). The group will be split into 3 teams. 2 teams will play each other. After 2 goals, or 5 minutes (whichever happens first) one team rotates off and the other in.
Why 3 teams?
This will be a fast paced game, with little to no breaks in play. Playing at a high intensity for 40 minutes will be incredibly difficult. Active rests will include being around the field to get the ball back into play as quick as possible so the players playing can maintain their high intensity.
