Worcester County Recreation & Parks looking to expand Men's Futsal opportunities

Following several successful seasons, Worcester County Recreation & Parks is looking to expand the Men's Futsal League at the Worcester County Recreation Center (WCRC) in Snow Hill for 2017.

The league at the WCRC included six teams during the first two seasons. The WCRC also hosted the 2nd annual War on the Shore Futsal Tournament December 9 -11, 2016. Thirty teams participated and included U14 Boys, U16 Boys, U18 Boys, U18 Girls, and a Men's Division.

"With most of the Men’s Futsal League teams planning to return this year and interest that we've had already from some new teams, I am confident we'll see our number of teams grow for the 2017 season," Program Manager Chris Roberts said. "With the addition of the tournament and growing our winter league, we are striving to become the premier location for Futsal.”

The Men's Futsal League will run on Friday evenings beginning January 13, with games beginning at 6:00 p.m. This competitive league is open to those ages 18 and up and is a team-entry league only (no individual sign-ups). The cost is $215 per team. The league will consist of 10 weeks of league games followed by playoffs. Scores and standing will be kept throughout the season. The registration deadline to get your team in is Monday, January 9. A team captain's meeting will be held that evening at the WCRC Center that night at 6:00 p.m.

New for this season, the winners of the 2017 Futsal League will receive more than just bragging rights. The league champions will get free entry into the December 2017 Men's Futsal Tournament.
