CATHOLIC YOUTH FUTSAL LEAGUE – 2021-2022 - GENERAL OVERVIEW
The Catholic Youth Futsal League and Academy was created in 2003 to provide children who attend the Diocese of Fall River Schools with a means to get together on Saturdays and play FUTSAL/INDOOR SOCCER in a safe and recreational environment.
Thousands of children have participated at the CATHOLIC YOUTH FUTSAL LEAUGE and ACADEMY during the past 17 years and have made new friends whilst developing their skills and having fun. The CYFLA is designed to accommodate children from 3 to 14 years old who attend the Diocese of Fall River Schools. The CYFL and ACADEMY is comprised of volunteers, coordinators, coaches, directors, and principals. IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT EVERY SCHOOL PROVIDES A COORDINATOR AND COACHES SO CHILDREN CAN PLAY!
