Indoor 2023/24 | EMSA South West

Indoor Program

SWEMSA offers community indoor soccer for girls and boys in programs from U5 to U19.

Playing in a fully boarded pitch (like a hockey rink), games are 6 vs. 6, player changes on the fly, no offside, pass the ball off the boards, and lots of opportunities to score. It’s an exciting game with minimal stoppages.

Fees are set by SWEMSA and uniform, coaches & equipment support supplied by our communities.

Registration opens August 1, 2023.
