How many players are allowed on a team?
Roster size will be a minimum of 7 players, and a maximum of 12 players, with only 11 dressed out per game. Non-participating players may be on the bench but not in team uniform, nor wearing shirts that are the same color of either team uniform for that match. 5 players are fielded per side (4+GK). A minimum of 3 players (including the goalkeeper) is required to start or continue play.
Can a player be rostered on more than one team?
No. Dual Rostering is not allowed. Players and teams currently registered in the 2021 League, registered under the AYSA umbrella, and in good standing with AYSA are eligible to participate. Players and teams must be Alaska-based and residents to register.
What is the game format?
The format is 5v5 (4+GK), with two equal periods of 22 minutes, with a 2-minute half time.
What will the game venues be?
Games are scheduled at O'Malley Sports Center and Arctic Rec Center in Anchorage. All teams are required to list an assistant coach/manager on the roster for conflicts of game time or location.
Will player cards be required for the tournament?
Yes. Approved, dated, and stamped rosters and player member cards will be verified by the referee at each game.
Will event passes be used?
Yes. Team rosters must list technical area staff (coach, manager, DOC/TD) and submit technical staff to AYSA by 12/5 for event passes. All adults on the futsal court must have an event pass.
Will 10-U standings be posted?
Yes. The referee will record the scores, and report them to AYSA for 10-U and older divisions.
Will competitive club pass be allowed?
Yes — prior to the roster lock, you may club pass a registered AFL player to a team for the tournament, but once the roster locks, they must remain rostered on the team that was submitted. The AFL State Cup Roster will be locked prior to the start of the tournament with no additions allowed after that date.
Are guest players allowed?
Yes. Registered AFL players may transfer from a club team not participating in Futsal State Cup to a club team that is participating. Transfer fees will apply. The team accepting a player from a non-participating team for Futsal State Cup will only be allowed two (2) temporary transfer approvals for their Futsal State Cup roster. See the relevant form.
Will coaches with multiple teams be accommodated?
Alaska Youth Soccer will accommodate coaches with multiple teams by scheduling games within a reasonable timeframe if possible. All teams are required to list an assistant coach/manager on the roster for conflicts by game time or location.
Can I cancel my registration for a refund?
You may cancel your registration any time prior to the registration deadline to receive a refund of your fees minus a $250 administrative fee. After the deadline, no refunds will be offered. Forfeiting a scheduled tournament game will result in a fine to the team of $500 per forfiet.
