Super F League enters new era as US Youth Futsal
The premier futsal organization in the U.S. launches new identity
for affiliated leagues, teams and players nationwide
(July 27, 2011) – US Youth Futsal was unveiled on Sunday as the new name and look of the Super F League, continuing the organization’s commitment to growing the game of futsal across the United States.
“The initiative has always been to develop youth futsal throughout the United States so it is only appropriate to adopt a name that best reflects that mission and our expanding role in the process,” said John Sciore, Director of Development..
US Youth Futsal, the only national futsal organization affiliated with the United States Soccer Federation, is dedicated to developing organized futsal opportunities for amateur players in cities across the country. US Youth Futsal is the fastest growing futsal organization in the U.S. and currently has more than 1,500 teams competing in its 35 leagues located in over 25 states, including top cities like Boston, Cleveland, Kansas City, South Jersey and St. Louis.
Players and coaches with US Youth Futsal are registered through the United States Specialty Sports Association (USSSA), the largest multi-sport sanctioning body in the United States.
“We started back in 1997 as the Kansas City Futsal League with five teams and here we are 14 years later having grown into the leading futsal supporter in the U.S. with a presence in 35 cities and counting,” Jon Parry, Executive Director, said. “Introducing US Youth Futsal as the new brand represents the rapid growth of not just our organization, but also the game of futsal in this country.”
US Youth Futsal’s leadership team consists of Jon Parry, Peter Vermes and John Sciore, who together contribute decades of experience at the highest levels of the sport.
US Youth Futsal will continue to host the Champions Cup - National Futsal Tournament, held annually since 2005 as the largest national youth futsal tournament in the country. The 6th Champions Cup – National Futsal Tournament was held at three different facilities in Shawnee, Kansas in February 2011 with more than 90 boys and girls teams participating in the U9 thru high school age groups.
