Coach G and Barefoot Futsal in Charlotte

Futsal Team Program: 2020-21 Season

This is a year-round team program that is open to all players regardless of their outdoor soccer club.  It is designed for the motivated player who wants to make futbol sala (fifa's futsal) and futbol de salon (the original version of the sport), as well as the Barefoot Method, a key part of their development path.  Players will train a minimum of 1x weekly with Barefoot coaches, focusing on mastery of technique and tactics integral to futbol sala and futbol de salon.  The Barefoot Method will be utilized to aid players and teams in developing authentic style, rhythm, and mastery in their game.

Returning Players: 

If you played for Barefoot-Futsala in the 2019-2020 season, you may go ahead and register for the program.  Any amount of money that you have already deposited in registering for the Barefoot-Futsala 2020-21 season will be credited towards your registration with Barefoot.

Cost and Payment Options

The cost includes training 1x per week.  The cost of competitions will be paid as we attend.  We have two options for our families to pay for training:

1) Pay in full for the year:  $540 (includes 1x training per week for 30 weeks)

2) Pay per season: $225 per 10-week season (Fall, Winter, and Spring)

Payments options: You can choose to pay through sports engine invoice or through Zelle (info@barefootfc.com).  If you are paying in full, you can also pay by check. 


Covid-19 Contingency Plan

In the event of a partial shutdown (i.e. limitations on the numbers of players who can train together at the same time) we will continue to train using a hybrid of online and in-person training in compliance with regulations.

 

In the event of a complete shutdown, we will offer online training for the remainder of that 10-week season as well as make up 75% of the missed training in-person once the shutdown has lifted.  We will then determine our plan for the next 10-week session.
