Indoor soccer is a rapidly-increasing hobby for high schoolers all across the U.S, accumulating 5.4 million teen participants, and Parkway South is included.

According to sources, there are 8 to 10 indoor teams from Parkway South.  

Luke Davis, junior, is a member on his indoor team at Vetta Manchester called The Quack Attack. Davis said he enjoys playing indoor.

“It’s just a fun thing to do with your friends, no matter if they actually play soccer or not. Anyone can score,” said Davis. “The scores can get up to a 10-goal game, which is really fun because of the constant action.”

Most high school games are played later at night on the weekends, from the earliest of 9:00 p.m to a possible midnight kickoff. Anel Rosic, senior, plays on a team called Swestco FC that plays out at Vetta Concord. He said he enjoys the late times because no parents are there and they can just mess around with just their friends.

“It’s fun because parents of course aren’t going to be there cause of the late times and you can just stay out late, get some food pre-game and then go wreck some kids,” Rosic said. “A major aspect of indoor soccer is the roughness, and fights and the fun chaos that can start.”

However this year refs have really cracked down on physical play. If there is a foul a ref thinks is too hard, the player is issued a blue card. If the player gets another blue card, that equals to a red and the player is suspended for 5 games, which is half the season.

Many players are not happy with this rule. Jack Dittmeier, junior, a part of the team the Balloholics, who plays at Vetta Concord, is one of them.

“I think it’s dumb. You should just let the boys play, because we want to be able to be rough with other teams, especially our rivalry, Bosnian teams,” said Dittmeier,

Bosnian teams seem to be common rival in indoor soccer for the Balloholics, dating back for four years.

“They treat it like it’s the World Cup every year so it’s really fun to mess around and anger them,” said Dittmeier.

Dittmeier said he believes indoor soccer is continuously rising in popularity because of the cheap cost and fun that comes with it.

“Our goal every game is to have fun and whoop some teams,” Dittmeier said.
