Due to replacement of the Gunston Bubble from April – August, 2020, there will be no spring indoor soccer season. A short season is planned for Fall 2020, and a resumption of a full Winter 2020-21 season to start December, 2020. See below for more information about Arlington’s indoor soccer leagues.
Arlington offers adult indoor soccer leagues playing at the Gunston Park Bubble and, for winter only, at the Arlington Mill Community Center.
What: Adult Indoor Soccer – women’s (winter only), men’s and coed leagues.
Who: Adults Ages 18 and Up
When: In spring/summer and fall, the men’s leagues play on Tuesday/Wednesday and coed plays on Thursday and possibly Monday. In the winter, coed plays Monday/Thursday and men on Wednesday and possibly Tuesday. The women’s indoor league plays on Tuesdays (sometimes Mondays), only in the winter. New seasons start in December, April, and August (September for 2020).
Game Times: Games begin as early as 6:30 pm or as late as 11:40 pm
Cost: $600 per team plus $30 per non-Arlington resident ($615/$30.75 for credit card payments; Arlington County does not receive the 2.5% credit card fee).
Residency: Teams must be comprised of at least 66% Arlington residents. Arlington residents include “business residents” who work in Arlington, but do not live in Arlington. “Business residents” will county towards meeting the residency requirement, but must pay the $30 non-resident fee. New players must provide proof of residency.
Registration: Registration for the Winter 2019-20 season is now closed. Registration for a short Fall 2020 season will open August 3.
Individual “Free Agents”. Individual looking for a team are encouraged to register early to maximize their chance of getting on a team. They may continue to register after the registration deadlines. Free agent lists will be made available to team captains to pick up additional players, and new teams of free agents may be formed. There is no initial cost to register as a free agent; however, free agent registrants are not guaranteed placement of a team.
Equipment: Shinguards are required. Teams must provide traditional soccer game balls at the Bubble; the County provides indoor soccer or futsal balls at Arlington Mill.
