Training & Camps



Futsal is a small-sided game that is played on a basketball court. Futsal provides more opportunities for players to improve because, compared to a one-hour indoor game, you get 3 times the number of touches on the ball.  Just like an indoor league, however, players compete in games, while, maximizing their monetary investment through guided instruction from high quality coaches.

Training Collaborations

While we'd love to be able to offer more winter training, we're unfortunately limited given space constraints and availability at various training facilities.  Our board is hard at work to find a long-term solution to this problem.  However, given the immediate demand for more training options this winter we have arranged some Special SSA Pricing at a couple of great training facilities!
