Futsal is high-octane soccer played on hardwood floors. It's also the only form of indoor soccer endorsed by FIFA. Our futsal program offers athletes world-class coaching and instruction.
The St. James Futsal Program offers student-athletes world-class coaching and instruction related to playing the game of futsal.
Student-athletes who participate in the St. James Futsal Program will train and compete in a Best-with-Best environment with the area's most gifted and passionate coaches and players. The program engages advanced coaches and trainers to deliver individual and small-group training and competition. Student-athletes will develop technical ball skills thereby improving first touch and the ability to retain the ball in tight spaces. In addition, coaches will teach student-athletes how to read and recognize various technical and tactical cues within the game, and strategies to improve communication, player movement, team shape and discipline, possession and transitional play.
Through guided practice, positive reinforcement and competitive training, student-athletes be encouraged to make early decisions before receiving the ball. Coaches will reward student-athletes who are creative, resilient and team-first players.

You were one of the only soccer organizations with the courage, willingness and ability to provide an amazing futsal experience for all of the kids during the middle of a global pandemic. The experience was world class and it was amazing to watch all of the kids grow and improve their skillset throughout the season. The academy environment is a great approach to player development and my daughter thrived in what you were able to provide her with not only in her continued technical development but also her confidence and growing love of game. Thanks so much for the wonderful season and experience. We can't wait to do again next season.
