We run Classes, After-School Programs, Soccer Camps and Recreational Leagues for kids of all ages and experience level. We have programs designed for players as young as 2 years old who are just starting to explore the ball to older players who are new to the sport, want to continue developing their skills or just want to play and have fun!
Our classes consist of Futsal and Street Soccer style of play.
Futsal is an exciting and fun, fast-paced, small sided soccer game
that is played all over the world.
Street soccer is what most kids in South America grow up playing.
It is simply the kids and a ball- They make their own decisions, explore, get creative
and take as many risks with the ball as they want
without adults telling them what cannot be done with the ball.
Many of the world's greatest soccer players grew up playing the sport and they all give credit to Futsal and Street Soccer for their development and happy memories.
Why Street Soccer & Futsal?
Futsal can be played on any hard surface, indoors and outdoors.
All you need is a ball.
Smaller field with less players means more touches on the ball. More touches on the ball is better for player development and confidence.
In a smaller field, you need to think outside of the box to beat defenders in 1 on 1 situations, to keep ball possession and to score goals.
Speed Of Play
With the reduced field space, players are also required to
think faster and make quicker decisions since they are constantly pressured by opponents.
