2016 Fall Futsal Academy
What is the Fall Futsal Academy @ SportHQ? The Academy is a focused, high level, futsal training program that will be conducted indoors Monday thru Friday at SportHQ for 14 weeks this Fall. All individuals signing up can attend as many nights as their schedule allows. We are teaming up with LEDA (Liberty Elite Development Academy) so that we can offer this program five days a week!
Who are the coaches? Eliott Torres, SportHQ’s Head of Futsal Coaching and Andrew Bradham, Director of LEDA will be the principal coaches.
How will my son/daughter benefit? During a typical training evening, they will touch, kick, trap, move, pass the futsal ball 1,000 times or more – 15,000 to 20,000 times over the course of the entire Fall. All of these touches will be conducted at or faster than game speed. They will be forced to use both their left and right foot. With the smaller futsal court, the entire practice is focused on creating scoring opportunities or defending scoring opportunities. Futsal training is fun! Your son/daughter will gain skills, techniques and confidence that is 100% transferable to the soccer field. Our training program has been adapted by SportHQ’s Eliott Torres from FC Barcelona’s Futsal program for use this fall. Eliott just completed his third year of working with FCB!
What is the first and last week of the Academy? The Fall Futsal Academy will run weekdays from August 15th through November 18th. You can attend as many nights as you can! You do not need to select the night(s) you will be attending.
What time will sessions be held? Sessions are organized by age. The first hour will be held on the futsal court, the last 15 minutes will be held on the small grey futsal playing area. ALL training will be held indoors.
5pm to 6:15pm – U8 thru U10

What is LEDA? LEDA (Liberty Elite Development Academy) is a supplemental training program designed to take soccer athletes’ game to an ELITE LEVEL! For more information, visit www.ledasoccer.com.
What is the cost of this program? If you register prior to August 4th, the price is $295 (after August 4th, $345). This cost can be further reduced if you have a sibling enrolled (10% reduction) or have participated in a 2015 or 2016 SportHQ futsal program (10% reduction). By offering the program 5 days per week we have increased the value for our families!
