Welcome to Barefoot Futbol Club

We are player centric and dedicated to promoting Soccer, Futsal, Futebol de Salão, Fútbol de Salón, Beach Soccer and their many developmental advantages, by providing the highest quality Soccer and Futsal experience in the region. We offer Core, Academy, USYF Development Academy, and League programs, as well as camps and clinics.   We have partnered with various indoor facilities around the Charlotte area in order to offer convenient access to our programs & services.


The "Barefoot Method" is a fusion of the best training practices from around the world. A core component of what makes Barefoot different in the United States is a belief in training across a variety of environments. Cross training in the related but different sports of Futsal, beach soccer & traditional soccer builds unique capabilities in a player. Each environment refines a player's ability to compete in a critical element of the modern soccer game. We call this training Soccer 2.0.

Winter Programming with Barefoot FC

As the weather cools down, we invite you to come indoors to train and play Futsal with us this winter!  The smaller heavier ball and faster court surface make Futsal a great tool for building your footskills and speed of play during the soccer off-season.  Barefoot FC offers several programs for you to grow your game this winter.  Check out our Winter Programs and Register below.

Shoeless Soccer: Fixing the System and Winning the World Cup

Barefoot Futsal Coach G

Barefoot FC helped plant the seeds of this grassroots movement over a decade ago and continues to develop uniquely exciting players with the Barefoot Method.  Shoeless Soccer helps provide a glimpse into what makes our players stand out from the crowd.

Soccer was the number one youth participation sport in America. But numbers have declined by nearly 25% in recent years. Over the same period, the US Men's national team has gone from what many considered the verge of a breakthrough to elimination from the 2018 World Cup.

If Americans can be the best at anything, then why not soccer? What's gone wrong with American soccer and what can we do to fix it? In memory of Pele's first team, "the Shoeless Ones," this book makes the compelling case that our uniquely American quest for perfect equipment, perfect fields, and perfect competition is exactly what has prevented our American youth from developing the skills, instincts and creativity needed to master the beautiful game.

If America is going to take its place as a true soccer nation, we'll need a movement at the grassroots level, even if it means that games aren't played on grass at all.

James Rodriguez Futsal Player

James Rodriguez - Bayern Munich and Colombian Great

Rodriguez Was 'Footballer From the Day He Was Born' 



The 2014 World Cup was full of surprises and unexpected calls to fame, but none were better than the emergence of James Rodríguez.

The son of a Colombian national team player, Rodríguez found his love for soccer at the age of five when his stepfather enrolled the youngster in the local academy of Tolima.

Though Rodríguez was an introverted child who often shied away from socialization due to his stutter, his zest for soccer was unmistakable from the very beginning.

The Football Greats Forged By Futsal


For decades now, futsal has been a popular and much-loved sporting discipline, especially in South America and southern Europe. And while the indoor version of football is rapidly growing in popularity elsewhere now, thanks to FIFA's patronage and the support of many leading personalities, it is in countries such as Argentina, Brazil, Spain and Portugal that futsal has proved a breeding ground for some of the greats of the game.
