Winter Futsal

We are excited to offer Winter Futsal programs this winter. Futsal is an indoor, small‐sided game played on a hard surface with a heavier futsal ball and futsal goals. Futsal offers many benefits as it improves decision making skills, improves reaction time, provides many touches on the ball, increases power via the weighted ball, develops confidence and improves creativity in 1v1’s. We are offering two sessions; one starting in December and one starting in February.

  • For our younger ages (Advanced Small Fry and Grade 1/2), we will have parent volunteer coaches run the sessions, including a mix of skills and games. For these age groups, we will be holding the sessions on Saturdays at the Hudson Portuguese Club.
  • For our older ages (Grade 3/4 and Grades 5/6 & 7/8), we will have a Revolution Academy coach run the sessions, including a mix of skills and games. For these age groups, we will be holding the sessions on Saturdays mornings at the Hudson MetroWest Boys and Girls Club.

HYSA Partners With New England Revolution Academy

In about the biggest news ever for our organization, we have just signed a long-term partnership agreement with the New England Revolution Academy to create soccer programs in order to better develop our players and coaches! This move is in a direct response to the feedback from our parent survey last November, which indicated that player and coach development are your highest priorities.

Starting with the Spring 2018 Soccer season, from the Small Fry and Advanced Small Fry program all the way up to Grade 7/8 and High School programs, players will be coached in age-appropriate practices by experienced Revolution Academy coaches alongside volunteer parent coaches. For the Grade 1/2 age groups and above, our soccer programs will consist of grade-based group practice nights with experienced Revolution Academy coaches alongside volunteer parent coaches, team specific practices with volunteer parent coaches, and skills days with experienced Revolution Academy coaches, all with curriculum developed by the Revolution Academy.

We hope you share our enthusiasm about this news and we would encourage you to take advantage of early registration for Spring 2018 Soccer. Our registration page includes detailed program descriptions, program dates and times, registration fees, and much more! In addition, we will be hosting information sessions for parents and coaches in the near future to go over our new partnership and programs.
