Instructor: Dan Ferrando
9 weeks
Dan Ferrando's Winter Futsal: Player Development & Play is for players who truly have a love for the sport and want to improve their performance. Futsal is where many of today’s soccer players develop their soft touch on the ball. Due to the fast and quick playing surface, players have to develop their gentle touch to properly control the speed of the ball. If your child loves soccer and has a hunger to improve his/her skills, this class will be a real stepping-stone in their development. We will focus on individual foot skills, and play small sided games. My focus with all my players is to develop confidence, a love for the game, and have fun doing it!
