This is for the soccer player looking to not only better their soccer skills, but also to learn the higher level part of the futsal game.
Lower cost offered due to some generous local businesses who sponsor the program.
A comparable program in other cities cost $700+.
This is a program that will be a best fit for players who play 2 sports or less. For multi-sport athletes, the academy is probably a better option.
If you so choose to be part of the travel teams, it will be important to value the training as much as the tournaments. Focus is not mainly on winning, but on challenging and making your child improve their soccer IQ ( for your child to get the most out of it, parent support at home will be key- focus on improvement, not on the result.)
Players will be placed on a team based on their age, as well as their physical, technical, and knowledge of futsal (not necessarily in that order).
Review the dates below (it’s ok to miss one here or there, but significant improvement will happen if you are there for most training and tournaments)
