US Youth Futsal (USYF) - https://www.usyouthfutsal.com/

United Futsal – https://unitedfutsal.com/

US Futsal Federation (USFF) - https://futsal.com/


Note: Both USYF and United Futsal requires US Soccer badges which may be obtained by certifying through the Metro DC-Virginia State Referee Program and OMS (https://mdcvasrp.omgtsys.com/). They are the only associations that use FIFA Laws of the Game.

USFF requires separate certification and utilizes modified rules and has a different badge other than US Soccer.
