Our representative teams provide the most talented players in our academy programme with an exit route into Futsal.
In our academy we work with young players from the age of 4 right up to the age of 18. Those selected from our academy programme to play for our representative teams receive weekly training and regular competition that will prepares them to one day go on and play Futsal at the highest level.
All players in our representative squads work through the clubs curriculum and have their own personal development plans which are based on assessment. Training is designed around the individual AND the team.
We also work closely with the Football Association whose regional centres of excellence provide a route for players to progress onto the international stage. The objective of these FA centres is to work with the most exciting Futsal talent with a view to creating the international players of the future. We are fortunate to have an England coach as our club ambassador who scouts for the North West centre of excellence so there are real opportunities to progress from our academy set up.
Our representative teams regularly compete against other academy teams around the country with trips planned around Europe as well.
Selection for our representative teams is done via our regional scouting programme, get in touch with us if you would like to become a Carlisle Futsal Club scout. Attending our academy classes as a young player is the best route to selection, it provides the opportunity to learn the game whilst working directly with our coaches.
