Minnesota Futsal



We are THE ONLY futsal league in the Twin Cities sanctioned by United States Youth Futsal and affiliated with United States Soccer. We employ only US Soccer futsal certified referees for our games. The Minnesota Futsal League is the only league that provides 2 referees for U14 and older teams. We think it is critical that the older age groups have 2 experienced officials to call the game properly.

TC Sala Development Center

TC Sala Development Center has expanded!

For Immediate Release
Minnesota Futsal is proud to announce that we are expanding our TC Sala Development Center for the 2019-2020 season and have partnered with another exceptional leader in the Minnesota Futsal community, Greg Wheaton, to lead the TC Sala Development Center South programming. Greg grew up in Brazil playing the beautiful game, was a professional outdoor soccer player with our beloved Minnesota Thunder, and has coached for the past 20+ years with many clubs around the twin cities including his current roles as Head Coach for the University of Northwestern, DOC for Shakopee Soccer Association, and Head Coach for Salvo's WPSL team.  He has also been a part of the USYF Minnesota State Futsal ID Trials for the past 2 years.
Todd Dusosky is also back for another year as our Technical Director for the TC Sala Development Center North program. Our founders, Brian Catrine and Fernando Jimenez will continue leading the TC Sala Development Center Central program in Minneapolis.  This means that will now offer cutting edge club-neutral futsal training in all areas of the Twin Cities 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, Greg Wheaton, or former United States Mens National Futsal Team Captain and current US Youth Futsal 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!


We are finalizing all the dates for the upcoming 2019-2020 Minnesota Futsal League.  Information will be posted by the end of August.

2018-2019 Minnesota Futsal ID

Thanks again to all that attended the 2019 USYF Futsal ID Camp.  Keith Tozer and the rest of our Coaching Staff were amazed by all the outstanding talent here in Minnesota.  Were are looking forward to seeing many of you again in Kansas City at the National ID Trials in June!

The US Youth FUTSAL ID program identifies and develops elite players in a highly competitive and challenging environment.  The top players from each State Trial will be invited to participate in the US Youth Futsal National ID Trial for three days of training and matches.  The US Youth Futsal National Teams are selected from the National Trials.  The US Youth Futsal National Teams will then go on to play International matches.  Last year the older group traveled to Columbia while the younger age groups traveled to Portugal.
