What is Futsal?
Futsal is a form of indoor soccer. It originated in Uruguay in the 1930's as an alternative to full sized soccer. Futsal was designed to play on Basketball sized courts both indoors and out, so that players without access to the luxuries of soccer could play a different sport. Futsal has evolved into an international sport with its own World Cup competitions and various national leagues. In the USA there are both regional and national level tournaments organized by USYF at a youth level.
Who are SFC?
SFC (Select Futsal Club) are a dedicated youth training program designed to provide training and competitive opportunities to players who want to do more. SFC started in 2021 with a U10 Girls group travelling to the USYF regional tournament. Through that tournament they qualified for the national event and other players started requesting training opportunities. As of May 2021 we have sessions and players training from ages 2013 to 2008. Each week we provide training sessions and pick up opportunities for all of these players. We believe that as important as coaching and training is, we should still provide players with an opportunity to just play. Our 'Pickup' sessions are cost effective and allow all players an environment to thrive.
SFC is a club built on confidence, effort and accountability. We are nationally affiliated with USYF (US Soccer's Futsal Partner) and we provide our players with quality training environments. Our sessions are based on the belief that those who attend are ready to give us 100%; everyone who trains with SFC is responsible for that aspect of training. From there, we take that 100% effort and turn it into 100% enjoyment and development. We give players a chance to succeed and objectively put that success into games and competition. So long as players are accountable for their effort, we are accountable for their enjoyment and development.
