The U.S. Youth FUTSAL I.D. program is designed to identify and develop elite players in the most challenging and competitive environment possible. Top players from each State Trial are invited to participate in the U.S. Youth Futsal National I.D. Camp for three days of training and matches. The best of the best are selected for U.S. Youth Futsal National Teams.
PREMIER FUTSAL LEAGUE was created by Lee Tschantret in 2004 to provide a competitive environment for players to hone their soccer skills through the game of Futsal. It has helped develop thousands of players over the years by giving them the chance to compete in a game that rewards individual foot skills, movement off the ball and quick reaction time. In Futsal, players learn to think and react instantaneously, in order to play effectively. Our League is geared toward the technical development of youth soccer players and is an excellent alternative to indoor soccer. The skills generated from playing Futsal directly translate into the outdoor game.
PREMIER FUTSAL ADULT LEAGUE is a new addition starting in December 2017. Teams will play at Coppermine Sport Center's new state-of-the-art Futsal facility located at 5731 Cottonworth Ave, Baltimore, MD 21209. Games are scheduled on Thursday and Sunday evenings.
PREMIER FUTSAL ACADEMY trains youth soccer players ages U7 through U12 in the art of Futsal. This Academy hones soccer abilities in a professional environment with cutting edge drills for optimum development in speed, agility and foot skills. Sessions are one hour long and focus on individual skills and technique that translate seamlessly into outdoor play. In modern soccer, where transition is so important, having good technical ability will give a player more time and space to operate with the ball.
