Barefoot School: Train and Study Program 2022-23

The Barefoot Futbol School is the highest level of commitment to the Barefoot Method and is intended for players birth years 2015-2007 who are dedicated to the Barefoot Developmental Pathway.
 

Training will include 3 hours of high quality Barefoot Method instruction incorporating all of our disciplines including  salon, soccer, sala, freestyle, beach and capoeira.  Training is focused on individual mastery and advanced interpretation/application. 

The Barefoot Method builds your total Futbolista mastery to a level conventional soccer club training just can't reach.  Our program incorporates futsal, beach soccer, capoeira, and freestyle soccer to name a few methodologies.  You will also be introduced to the other off the grid training methods Barefoot FC employs to develop some of the most skilled and creative players the Charlotte area has produced.  

The Barefoot Futbol School has helped to develop players who have gone on to represent on US Youth Futsal National Teams, Commit to D1 College soccer programs (including UNC Chapel Hill, University of Kentucky, and Wofford College), and become members of the MLS club Charlotte FC.
