In the past 3 years Ohio futsal players have made up over 20% of the US Youth Futsal National team pool. Players from greater Cincinnatti, Akron and Cleveland have made team trips to Toronto, Canada, SanJose, Costa Rica and Medellin, Colombia. If you know a player who aspires to compete with the best players in the USA and beyond please forward them this invitation and registration link above.
As a 10 year futsal coach, member of the USYF National Coaching Staff and former US National Futsal Team goalkeeper, I was fortunate to participate in the 1996 CONCACAF Futsal Championships and the FIFA Futsal World Cup in Spain. It was a goal of mine to present dedicated young athletes the opportunity to experience the international game of futsal the way I had been able to and the USYF Futsal ID Program is the only such program in the United States that offers players this path. I am proud to be a part of the Futsal ID team with US Men's National Team Coach Keith Tozer and I encourage you to share this information with the best players that you know and present them this opportunity!
