Our Academy programme aims to provide those players that are able and willing with the opportunity to progress down the elite player pathway in Futsal. However for those new to the sport and wanting to learn then our Performance Centres and Pre Academy provide the perfect introduction to the sport. Our aim is to provide anyone interested in learning the game of Futsal with the opportunity to do so.
All sessions are delivered in line with our club coaching curriculum which is designed to educate a player starting at the age of 4 and taking them up to the age of 18. By working through our curriculum it will ensure a player realises their full potential and hopefully progress to represent one of our Club representative teams and one day graduate to our first team Senior squad.
Dont dismiss Futsal as just 5-a-side, its a professional sport around the world with players earning up to £5k per week. It is expected the sport will turn professional in England in the coming years as TV money and sponsorship comes into the game. All the worlds best Footballers grew up playing Futsal – Messi, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Kaka, Iniest, its a fantastic tool for developing great footballers too.

Futsal offers fantastic opportunities for player development and the learnt skills translate onto the football field.
Futsal rules are closer to football than other forms of small sided football, as there are no walls, if the ball goes out of play possession is lost, this encourages good habits as players will try to keep possession of the ball rather than take the easy option to play off the walls, or kick the ball down field knowing the ball will remain in play.
Our ambition is to create a senior mens team that will compete for the FA National Futsal Super League title. This will create a pathway for the very best in our academy into the professional game and for the best go on to win International honours. Our strategy is to spend the next 5-10 years creating players in our academy who can go on to represent our Club at the very top.
Futsal is played in a small area on a fast hard surface, which will help players to improve their speed of thought, which will allow players to make better decisions when under high pressure situations or in tight spaces in games.
Futsal is played with a small number of players, which allows players to have more touches on the ball which helps players to become more comfortable on the ball.
The Futsal ball also encourages players to pass over short distances and keep the ball on the ground as it is harder to just kick the ball in the air down field. This will help to develop good habits in players at an early age.
The Futsal ball with its reduced bounce allows players to get good control of the ball without it bouncing away, which gives players a greater confidence on the ball and encourages players to be more creative.
