Midland Futsal Academy is based in the West Midlands. Established in 2012 we are a football coaching organisation that combines unique coaching methods from the high intensity game of Futsal.
Our training focuses on each individual and is based on technical ability. It is our aim to make each of our players, regardless of age, gender or abililty, the best player they can possibly be.
Our methods, mentality and philosophy are proven already, we have helped make fantastic players with exceptional technical ability across all age groups, with several playing for professional club academies and schools of excellence.
Our training is very unique and emphasis is placed on the individual rather than team methodology. At Midland Futsal Academy our belief is simple - technical aspects of football must be mastered first and an indiviudal must become comfortable with the ball.
Midland Futsal Academy is not a team, we are a coaching organisation designed to give specialist coaching to players of all ages, ability and gender. Players that have grown with the Academy are technically superior with a football than others of the same age.
We offer coaching from walking age to 5 years for boys and girls in our 'Mini Stars' programme and 6 years upwards for boys and girls in the 'Midland Futsal Academy'.
WHAT IS FUTSAL?
The skills of Futsal place considerable demand on technique, movement, tactical awareness and fitness, demanding quick reflexes, fast thinking and pinpoint passing.
Futsal encourages players to become more agile, faster, stronger and have better balance.
Futsal also helps youngsters become more comfortable with the ball and gives them lots of opportunities to practise dribbling, passing, turning, shooting and ball control in tight spaces whilst under pressure.
Our focus for young players is on their technique and being comfortable with the ball at their feet, not winning. Training to win should come later on in a footballers career.
