Annual Calendar: Consists of 4 x 8 week sessions (Fall, Winter 1, Winter 2, Spring)
Cost/Commitment: $250 for initial 8 week session (includes training jersey), and $200 for each renewal session. Registration secures your roster spot. Renewing each successive 8 week session maintains your roster spot. No annual commitment is required.
Included: 8 x 75 minute high intensity Team training sessions, plus a training jersey!
Not Included: League & Tournament Fees
What to Expect: Academy participants will advance in Futsal-specific technique, develop a strong tactical understanding of the game, and gain confidence across the different Futsal positions. Team training sessions will be intense and challenging, and will prepare participants to compete with the top-tier Futsal teams in the region.
Note on skill level: While we are not holding tryouts, it is expected that participants currently play at a "Classic A Team" level or higher. Our goal is not to assemble "best of the best" teams out of the gate, but rather to start with good teams and develop them into exceptional teams. If you are unsure if the Academy is a good fit for your player, feel free to call me anytime @ 503-839-4400.
