At Ipswich Futsal, we offer open gender social competitions to all age groups, with the addition of Senior Womens. When multiple divisions are present in an age group (i.e. seniors), we are able to grade our comps to accommodate players of different skill and physical ability. The current season (Winter 2021) will begin on Tuesday April 27.

Typical Season Structure
Typically, the first two or three weeks of a senior season are used for half length (18 minute) grading games to identify outlier teams and the skill gaps in our comps, which inform any changes made to the membership and structure of each division. Then the season proper begins and typically lasts for 15 weeks.
At the completion of all competitive seasons (U12/13 and above), the top 4 teams in each comp play two weeks of finals to battle it out for the competition’s championship, and the chance to win some silverware and hold the Ipswich Futsal cup, courtesy of Colleges Engraving and Trophy Shop. All non-competitive age groups (U10/11 and below) win participation medals at the end of each season.
