2021-22 Season


The Barefoot Academy utilizes the uniquely effective Barefoot Method to develop mastery and style through a completely different language and learning environment.  Our foundation is rooted in authentic futsal DNA and the original version of the game (Futbol de Salon).  

Throughout the year we train in many different disciplines specifically designed and tied together with the Barefoot Method: Futbol Sala (Fifa Futsal), Futbol de Salon (the original), Futbol (Grass), Freestyle Futbol, Futbol Playa (Beach Soccer), takraw, foot volley, teqball, and Capoeira. 

Weekend play opportunities are targeted to aid mastery and development.  The include an age appropriate mix of in house play, friendlies, festivals, tournaments, and league play in soccer, beach soccer, futbol sala, and futbol de salon.  Opportunities to compete in other futbol disciplines such as freestyle, panna, and teqball will also be sprinkled in.
