Fall/Spring Club Season
Our fall (Men's) and spring (Women's) club season creates opportunities for both individuals and the team to compete together at a higher level of soccer.  The opportunity to compete against the best teams in the area creates an environment for our athletes to push themselves to perform at the highest level possible.  By keeping the core of the team together year round, we are able to learn each others strengths and weaknesses which in the end creates an environment of group success.  These seasons, for our young men and women, increase the yield of the team during its high school season.        

Indoor/Futsal Season
We focus more on the Futsal style of play rather than the more common Indoor "off the walls" style of play.  Futsal is a scaled down version of the outdoor game and is the official game of FIFA.  While common in America to play walled soccer, Futsal is the game that outdoor soccer players around the globe play when they are indoors to refine and maintain their control skills and touch. It is superior to walled soccer in terms of developing better skills and technique. In traditional American walled soccer, players regularly whack the ball (and sometimes their bodies) against the boards which promotes improper technique and too often rewards errant play. In Futsal, players are constantly reminded to play the same quality control game that is required for success in the outdoor game.

Because the sport is a great skill developer, demanding quick reflexes, fast thinking, pin-point passing, and a four-second limit on all play restarts it is an exciting game for children as well as adults.

Great soccer superstars such as Pele, Zico and Socrates grew up playing the game and credit Futsal with developing their skills. Ronaldinho and Robinho are products of futsal schools. Futsal is played with a special low bounce ball, necessitating players to use their ball striking skills, rather than the ball's bounce, to propel it.


Occasionally our teams may participate at walled tournaments to provide experiences for our athletes, as they are competitive and fun, but our main focus is to improve the athletes vision, touch, movement and overall game play.
