A. Most, if not all, games will be played at the same location. There may be a need to switch locations for a particular weekend because of a conflict at a facility.
Q. When will games be played?
A. Once the teams and divisions are set, games for each division will be on a set day and similar time each week.
Q. Is the league only for Valley AFC players?
A. No. The league is open to all players/teams from the Roanoke Valley area. We will have both recreational and travel teams participating.

A. The games will be played on basketball courts (no walls) using a futsal ball. Sneakers or indoor soccer shoes must be worn.
Q. I want to sign-up a team, what do I need?
A. Team registrations require a minimum of 7 players and a maximum of 10 players. Upon request, you will need to provide Valley AFC the names, birthdates, phone numbers and email addresses of each player.
Q. I want my child to play with their team, do I use the individual sign-up form?
A. No. The coach for the team should sign-up all the players with the team sign-up form. A team entry with a full roster ends up being less expensive than having each player sign-up individually.
