FutsalRVA Academy is a premier futsal development program that offers players a unique opportunity to train and compete with players from other soccer clubs that are at the same skill-level. Our program is designed to complement, not compete with, a player’s regular soccer training with their own clubs. With our team of highly qualified and experienced coaches, our priority is improving the futsal and soccer skills of our players and offering opportunities for intense futsal game-play.
FutsalRVA Academy is for players looking to participate in high-level technical and tactical futsal training sessions, competitive league play, as well as regional and national level tournaments. FutsalRVA players will focus on technique, tactical awareness and pinpoint passing which demands quick reflexes and fast thinking.
