Bolts Futsal Program 2017/18

futsal

We are proud to launch our 2017/18 Bolts Futsal Program led by Sam Viana, Bolts Futsal Director. He has put together a comprehensive and affordable futsal program that includes training and games beginning in mid November.  Training will be held at regional locations on weekday evenings; games will be on weekends at rotating locations between all Bolts regions; players will be selected to participate in Futsal Tournaments.        

At Bolts futsal our focus is on teaching the game the right way, practicing and playing futsal with the right balance of technique, tactics, creativity and individual flair. 

 

From Futsal Director Sam Viana: "This is my third year at the club, and I'm very pleased with the growth and success we have achieved so far.  We have received incredible support already from last year's participants, so 2018 promises to be our best year yet!"

Bolts already holds a rich history of futsal success, including championships at both the 2016 USSF and USYF Northeast Futsal Regionals.  Former Bolts futsal player Mimi Kenawy is recognized as one of top young talents in the country, with recent call-ups by the USA National Futsal Team. Kenawy plays for Cedar Rapids Rampage (MASL) and scored a goal in his first match yesterday! 

 

 

Why Futsal?

US Soccer has recognized that futsal is a great tool for the development of soccer players, thus they have introduced it in their Development Academy program.  The hard surface, heavier low bounce ball, small dimensions, and reduced number of players create an intense game, which demands greater technical and tactical awareness from its participants.

In Brazil the utilization of futsal for the development of soccer players has been used at the majority of the big clubs.  Players like Neymar, Marcelo, Willian, Philippe Coutinho, have attributed their outstanding technical abilities and creativity in small spaces to their involvement in futsal as youngsters.
