Academy is more than a word and we are proud that TC Sala Academy has met the standard to be one of only 20 programs in the United States that can wear this badge.  Our goal is simple, to develop players and create environments of learning where youth players can grow tactically, technically, and personally on a Regional and National platform.


TC Sala Academy is THE ONLY certified USYF Academy in the state of Minnesota.  The Academy trains throughout the year and competes in the USYF Academy League as well as a few select Regional/National tournaments.  We are completely club neutral and our players represent many of the top clubs and programs from around the state of Minnesota.  


TC Sala Academy is a 10 month program that trains throughout the year and competes in several Academy specific events as well as USYF Regional/National tournaments.  We are completely club neutral and our players represent many of the top clubs and programs from around the state of Minnesota.  


We were recognized as one of the top Futsal Academies in the country last year having 9 teams qualify for the USYF National Championships in 2023, 3 of which advanced out of group play, 2 of our teams finished as National Champion Finalist (2007 Boys and 2010 Girls) at the 2023 National Championships.  


In addition, over 75 TC Sala Academy players have been selected to either the first team or the alternate pool for the USYF International Teams that play in International Competitions over the past 5 years.  A special congratulations go out to the following superstars that earned this achievement in 2023:


BOYS:  Miguel 2012, Elias 2012, Finn 2010, Colin 2009, Wiktor 2009, Sebastian 2008,  Jack,2008, Axel 2007, Finn 2007, Justin 2007, Jason 2006, Evan 2005, Jack 2005.


GIRLS:  Ida 2010, Sophia 2010, Lou 2008, Lili 2007


We are ready for another year of development and can't wait to see our kids competing on that stage again.  Players will need to attend a tryout to be selected for an Academy Team and tryouts will be held in November.  We are planning to field teams for boys and girls from U9-U19.  


TC Sala Development Centers are the foundation of TC Sala and support training environments all around the metro.  Each Development Center will include 1.5 hour training sessions for kids that are looking to further develop their futsal skills. Sessions will focus on individual development and include best-practice training techniques used with our USYF National Teams. Whether your focus is making the USYF National Team or just improving your overall game, this is a great opportunity to learn from some of the top futsal instructors in the area. All sessions will be led by current United States Youth Futsal National Coaching Staff member Brian Catrine, 'The Maestro' Fernando Jimenez, UNW Head Coach and USYF Minnesota ID Staff member Greg Wheaton, USYF Minnesota ID Staff member Aaron Lindquist, or former United States Mens National Futsal Team Captain and current USYF National Coaching Staff member Todd Dusosky.


We are extremely excited to have such a talented coaching staff and look forward to developing the future of futsal in Minnesota!
