Were your soccer practices rained out this week? Rain never stops futsal.
ANNOUNCING Spring Futsal Academy. This is a program designed to not conflict with spring soccer season but to complement it instead. Players receive soccer coaching fall, spring, fall, spring, etc. When are they coached by futsal coaches? When do they benefit from learning futsal skills? Many soccer greats credit their upbringing in futsal for their superior technical soccer skills, e.g. Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Neymar and more.

The North Alabama FUTSAL League will host a futsal academy for six weeks in March and April to teach futsal skills and how they relate to soccer.
Coaching by Trained Futsal Coaches:
• Learn Skills & Techniques that you will not learn from soccer coaches
• Learn Futsal-specific skills, for example:
-- kick-in skills and tactics
-- futsal style shots on goal
-- goalkeeper initiated attacks
-- trapping/playing the ball most efficiently
• Learn how the Futsal-specific skills easily translate to soccer to make you a better soccer player
• Get an edge over other soccer players; great for youth wanting to improve rapidly and make their school soccer teams next year
• Lead Coach holds a Diploma in Futsal Coaching; Guest Coaches round out the training
Sessions will include coaching and scrimmaging. Each session will last just an hour in order to not overstress young players. Sessions run 6:30 to 7:30 PM each time on Thursday and Friday evenings. Depending upon the magnitude of registration, there may be a 7:30 to 8:30 PM session. A player may come once or twice per week.

April 9, 10, 16, 17.
