In-House League

Palumbo’s Intramural program is designed for children ages 6-12 yrs who enjoy soccer and are eager to practice and further their soccer skills and who enjoy the team atmosphere without the commitment of joining a travel team.  Our in-house programs will be available in fall, winter and spring season with the ability to register for one season at a time.  Also, all in-house players are welcome to register for summer camps and clinics.  All games and practices are located in or around Palumbo Rec Center, our home field.

WINTER
Futsal is a small-sided (5v5) indoor soccer game. The nature of the game places a large emphasis on technical skill and ability in situations of high pressure. Futsal is an excellent breeding ground for skill development and overall soccer competencies that can be translated into the more traditional outdoor game. 

The concept for Palumbo's Winter In-House Futsal League is similar to our Club's Fall In-House Outdoor League, with a few minor adjustments. Details are:

  • Season is 10 weeks (including season-ending tournament) and runs from the first week of January thru the 2nd week of March;
  • Each team will have 1 training session during the week (led by a combination of paid professional coaches and parent coaches) and 1 game on the weekends;
  • Training sessions will be held at local gyms in the neighborhood on a weekday evenings;
  • Games will take place on Saturday morning or afternoon, either at Old Pine Community Center (4th and Lombard) or Palumbo Recreation Center (10th and Fitzwater);
  • Teams will be approximately 9 players each, depending on how registration numbers break out;
  • It is anticipated that there will be a Squirts, Junior and Senior Division
  • Each child will receive Palumbo Soccer Club / Center City Orthodontics game and practice t-shirts;
  • Per Player Cost is $175 for the Winter Futsal Program

 EQUIPMENT needed: size 3 futsal ball, sneakers or soccer flats, water bottle, and athletic soccer attire

SPRING
This season brings fun "pickup" style games to finish up the year. There will be one technical training session per week by our travel team coaches and one game per week. Players attending game days will be divided into teams on-site by our referees to play 5v5 .  You will not need to alert Palumbo of game days that you will be attending or missing.  Come when you can and enjoy the fun!
