The game of Futsal is growing in popularity around the world, and we are going to match the global enthusiasm for this game with the same excitement that our missionaries all over the world have for sharing the Gospel by hosting our second annual Futsal tournament for 1st–8th graders!
Put together your team (three to six players recommended) and register for the tournament. Every team will play as a country where HP Pres currently supports a missionary, and you''ll receive a shirt to wear on game day! The week of the tournament your team will be e-mailed which country they will represent, a biography of the missionary they will be playing for, and an explanation about how they work tirelessly for God’s glory where they are serving.
Tournament day will be full of pageantry, activities, food, and fun! There will even be ambassadors to guide and cheer your team on throughout the tournament. We look forward to this being a fun day of futsal and celebrating our missionaries! A part of the registration fee will go toward the missionaries, and students will also write letters of encouragement to the missionaries they‘re supporting!
Register by Thursday, April 20 to guarantee your team will have shirts! However, registration will be open until Wednesday, April 26.

What is Futsal?
Futsal is a variant of soccer. The ball is heavier and smaller than an American soccer ball. The field is usually a basketball court with goals at both ends. The players touch the ball an average of six times more often in this game that rewards ball control, getting out of tight spaces and clever placement. The game of Futsal is well-known around the world for dramatically developing the soccer skills of many elite players, but is new to the US – have you heard of it?
