The Genome Foundation Futsal League is a non profit 501c3 organization. Our mission is to grow grassroots soccer from the ground up by expanding opportunities to play for all individuals in our community. We desire to see every individual in our community have the tools and opportunities necessary to achieve their goals and dreams as a soccer player and individual.
The Genome Foundation Futsal League is a fast paced indoor version of soccer, played 5v5 on a gym floor with a smaller, bounce resistant ball. Futsal is popular around the world, and has been identified as an excellent tool to accelerate individual player development. The 5v5 format of Futsal translates to more touches on the soccer ball per player, fast decision making, greater ball control due to the smaller bounce-resistant soccer balls, and high scoring games. There are no walls for players to kick the ball off of, as there are in traditional indoor soccer, which is why Futsal is the preferred version of indoor soccer officially recognized by USSF. The revenue generated from our Futsal league is reinvested in the local community by providing need based soccer scholarships and subsidies to families in financial need.
