In the Eastern Region part of Pennsylvania, the state governing body for the sport of Futsal is the PA East Futsal Association. The association has aspirations of integrating strong Futsal leagues with existing futsal programs throughout the state at the youth and amateur levels. PA East Futsal Association works in conjunction with local, state, and regional soccer organizations and associations to further increase player development of the state’s youth players. PA East Futsal began promoting the sport in the spring of 2000 with demonstrations and small tournaments.
In 2013, U.S. Futsal announced Anthony Maher, as the new Director of Futsal for Eastern PA. Anthony Maher is a former U.S. Futsal National Team member, 10 Year Professional Soccer Player, serial entrepreneur, and also current owner of Philly Futsal Academy. Anthony Maher states, “I am excited to be part of growing the sport of futsal in PA East and look forward to working with the states top coaching minds to better enhance player development. We want more youth soccer players to have the chance to activate creativity, confidence, quick thinking, and sharp skills into their games. Our state’s motto will be ‘Train. Play. Develop.’ and we will look to implement statewide curriculum that benefits youth players from u6-u23. Exciting stuff in Eastern PA!”
PA East Futsal is established to help our youth develop not only into great soccer players but also into productive members of society. Futsal provides a lot of entertainment for all who participate. Since everyone on a Futsal team must work together as one entity the most important concept to promote is teamwork. Together we can produce the best soccer players in the country.
All players must register with the U.S. Futsal Federation and will receive medical insurance coverage while participating in any sanctioned Futsal leagues and tournaments. Annual Futsal dues are just $9.50 for youth players, $15.00 for adult players and $15.00 for coaches. The association will also provide facilities insurance coverage for all Futsal leagues.
If your organization wants to further the skills of your soccer players, then Futsal is the game for you. Penn East Futsal is looking for people to develop local leagues at the youth and amateur levels. The association will be happy to work with you on establishing the game in your area.
