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.
We were recognized as one of the top Futsal Academies in the country last year having 11 teams qualify for the USYF National Championships in 2021, 3 of which advanced out of group play, 3 reached the semi-finals, and our 2006 boys finished as Finalists in the 2021 National Championships.
In addition, 18 TC Sala Academy players were selected to either the first team or the reserve pool for the USYF International Teams that will be heading to Madrid this winter. A special congratulations go out to the following superstars:
BOYS: Ati 2009, Graham 2009, Ian 2008, Cal 2008, Olivier 2007, Chris 2007, Charlie 2006, Evan 2005, Jack 2005, Tony 2004, Sam 2003
GIRLS: Lou 2008, Sawyer 2007, Szofia 2007, Emma 2007, Jessica 2005, Adi 2004, and Carmen 2003!
Our Academy teams are led by the top Futsal coaches in Minnesota and we will use the same cutting edge developmental methods used with the US Youth National programs. We are looking to form boys and girls teams in birth years 2013-2004.
Tryouts will be held November 6 at the Minneapolis Sports Center
2013-2009 Boys and Girls: 9-10:30am & 12:30-1:45pm
2008-2004 Boys and Girls: 10:30am-12 & 1:45-3pm
If selected to an Academy Team, players will commit to training with their Academy team 1x/week (on Saturday mornings) and playing in a few events including the USYF Regional Championships, USYF National Championships, USYF Academy League and USYF Academy Cup. Cost will be $110/month from Nov - July. Academy members can also attend any TC Sala Development Center when space allows at no additional cost.
We also want to remind everyone that we truly enjoy bringing all the kids together, but please know that Academy sessions and events should never conflict with a home club commitment. This is always a development experience for our players in addition to their club environment, never instead of. If there is ever a conflict, our expectation is that the player would attend their club activity and miss the Academy training or event.
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 or speak with one of the Directors to be selected for an Academy Team and tryouts will be held November 6. We are planning to field teams for boys and girls from U9-U18.
