This program is by invitation and is for the dedicated player seeking our unique player development by training in our talent building “Lab”.
Our Academy Program is a deeply immersive, year-round program which teaches mastery, control, style and confidence through a completely different language and learning environment. While our foundation is deeply rooted in AUTHENTIC FUTSAL DNA, throughout the fall, winter, and spring we will be training in many different disciplines: Futbol Sala, Futbol de Salon, Futbol (Grass), Futbol Freestyle, TAPS, Futbol Playa (Beach Soccer), and Capoeira.
Our training sessions will run twice per week for 1.5 hours each. Note the days for this season in registration.
Our matches will be primarily on weekends and are specifically designed to optimize PLAYER DEVELOPMENT! Matches will rotate between Futsal Tournaments, Friendlies, and Festivals-all featuring our various disciplines of the beautiful game of Fútbol as futsal, soccer, sand, freestyle. Away tournaments and Regional & National Futsal events will be at an additional per event fee.
We are very proud of the reputation & success our Barefoot Academy Alumni & current players have achieved in becoming a new breed of player. We encourage you to ask around, and of course, we hope to help you transform your player into a standout Futbolista too!
