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.

Sanctioned by U.S. Youth Futsal

TC Sala Academy Development Center

2022-2023 TC Sala Academy and Development Centers

Minnesota Futsal is proud to announce that we are continuing our TC Sala Academy and Development Centers for the 2022-2023 season!
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 10 teams qualify for the USYF National Championships in 2022, 5 of which advanced out of group play, 4 reached the semi-finals, and our 2009 boys finished as Finalists in the 2022 National Championships.  
In addition, 25 TC Sala Academy players were selected to either the first team or the reserve pool for the USYF International Teams that play in Argentina or Portugal this cycle.  A special congratulations go out to the following superstars:
BOYS:  Miguel 2012, Emerson 2011, Finn 2010, Etienne 2009, Ati 2009, Yahir 2009, Graham 2009, Cal 2008, Billy, 2008, Olivier 2007, Axel 2007, Chris 2007, Justin 2007, Jason 2006, Evan 2005, Jack 2005.
GIRLS:  Ida 2010, Lou 2008, Sharleen 2008, Sharis 2008, Szofia 2007, Lili 2007, Emily 2007, Jessica 2005, Adi 2004
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-U18.  

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!
