COMPETE AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF YOUTH FUTSAL IN THE UNITED STATES
U.S. Youth Futsal’s new Academy Program raises the bar on youth Futsal in the USA. Futsal is a beloved game that provides many touches on the ball and has a unique set of rules to enhance player development and enjoyment. The development Academy was established to standardize the US youth Futsal curriculum, and give futsal players a true pathway.
To support the growth of Futsal and continued player development ISL & Barefoot are joining forces to offer an additional new training program for the most dedicated futsal players. The two player centric organizations will be combining our Development Academies to into a single Academy training program. This program will offer a powerful dual training emphasis combining European Futsal and South American Futsal training techniques to enhance player development. The program will provide year around Futsal training to be completed along side a player’s current outdoor club training. Players will train once a week during the fall and spring, and twice a week or more during the winter. Being a part of the Development Academy will give players Futsal exposure on a National level.
Development academy players will train year round in the heart of the city. The curriculum will be lead by Coach G, a staple in Charlotte for the past 10 years, and Santi Gea, who is the former FC Barcelona Futsal coach, and current Director of the Catalan Futsal Federation. It is an honor to have two pioneers of the game on board as the figureheads for our joint program.
Our development academy players will have fluid connection to the US Youth Futsal National pathway and will find themselves under constant observation of National team staff, college, and professional coaches throughout the year.
