US Youth Futsal Development Academy

The Futsal Factory Academy is a premier futsal development program designed for competitive level soccer players who are looking to elevate their game by participating in high-level technical and tactical futsal training sessions and game play.

The Academy program is designed to complement, not compete with, a player’s regular soccer training with their own clubs. With our team of highly qualified and experienced coaches, our priority is improving the futsal and soccer skills of our players and offering opportunities for high level futsal game-play.

Academy players are selected after attending a formal tryout and players who are selected to the Academy will train one time per week and will follow the US Youth Futsal Academy training curriculum.

Training will focus on technique, tactical awareness and pinpoint passing which demands quick reflexes and fast thinking. Through our unique training methods, we have produced players of exceptional ability with several current and former Academy members being selected for US Youth Futsal International Teams.

The Futsal Factory Academy is one of 23 official US Youth Futsal Academies in the United States and the only USYF Academy in the Sacramento area.
