About Indoor House League 2016-2017
THPFC’s Indoor House League is aimed at recreational players, and is a fun and inexpensive way for kids to stay active and maintain their soccer skills over the winter.
Competitive players should consider THPFC's Club Training program. Club Training is aimed at competitive players who want to develop their skills over the winter, and are willing to make a greater commitment in terms of both time and money. Please check out the Winter Club Training page for more information.
The Indoor House League is run entirely by volunteers. We need your help! We need coaches for every team and convenors for every division. No special soccer skills are required to be a coach. Convenors help organize the division and make sure it runs smoothly.
Please save other Club volunteers from having to contact all the players’ parents looking for coaches and convenors. You know you want to! Please say so during the online registration process!
Early November to about March break, approximately 15 sessions.
(All Indoor House League games are played in local gyms, some of which may be unavailable on certain dates due to holidays or school functions. Some divisions may wrap up as early as late February while other may run as late as the end of April.)

Session times and formats
Sessions begin at either 6:00 or 7:00 pm (varies from week to week) and run for one hour.
· U06: Sessions consist of a half-hour practice followed by a half-hour game. Scores and standings are not kept.
· U09: Sessions consist of a 15 minute warm up and a game with two 20-minute halves and a 5-minute half-time. Scores and standings are not kept and there are no “playoffs”.
· U12 and U15: Sessions consist of a 15 minute warm up and a game with two 20-minute halves and a 5-minute half-time. Scores and standings are kept and the last few weeks of the season consist of a Cup tournament with a Cup Champion determined.
For U09, U12 and U15, the times shown on your schedules are kick-off times (i.e. 6:15 or 7:15). Please arrive 15 minutes before kick-off (i.e. 6:00 or 7:00) to help with setup and to allow time for warm up and pre-game organization.
In the event that a division does not have enough players to form a full division with at least four teams, then that division will use a “pickup” format: two teams are formed each week, with the players being mixed up from week to week.
Uniforms and equipment
Each player will receive a uniform (jersey, shorts and socks). Shin pads are required but not supplied. Indoor soccer shoes are recommended, but a good running shoe with a non-marking sole will do.
All players will receive a commemorative medal. Official team or individual photos are not taken.
The Indoor House League uses a simplified version of FIFA Futsal rules.
