Ole Futsal Academy


As a continuous attempt to provide the best and most innovative training and developmental opportunities for our players and families, Ole’ Soccer has recently announced the launching of the OLE’ FUTSAL ACADEMY! OFA will run year round and its curriculum will allow players of different ages and abilities to learn more about this style of soccer that has become a mandatory curriculum segment in the top professional soccer academies around the world as well as the USSF DA and US Youth National teams.

FUTSAL is a fast-paced version of soccer that is popular across Latin America and Europe. Renowned for improving speed of play, ball mastery, decision making, improvisation, and creativity, FUTSAL will give players all the elements to compete at a different level.

Be aware … 

Parents and players are often misled to playing indoors, in a gym, with a Futsal ball, but that, in many cases, is not necessarily Futsal. If you are not learning all the fundamentals of FUTSAL, proper techniques and tactics from a qualified/certified and experienced coaching staff who have a Futsal background, you are not benefiting from it. You are simply playing indoor soccer in a gym floor” – says, Danilo Martins, Ole Soccer Director of Coaching. Danilo adds: “you need to meet certain requirements to teach and coach Futsal – not many people in our area are qualified and certified to do it, but we are fortunate enough to have staff members who have played the game of Futsal for many years and are Futsal certified”.  

OLE’ SELECT & FUTSAL

We have modified our curriculum and the SELECT program is now implementing FUTSAL as its main training and competition platform during the Winter season. In essence, SELECT Winter is now “FUTSAL SELECT TEAMS”.
