In addition to Michael, who is a leading coach and trainer with the club, Alex Morales will also be supervising sessions.  Alex is a well respected referee in the area, and has helped run the Futsal Program in the past.  Helping Michael and Alex will be several of the high school players in the club.  We look forward to seeing all registered players on Sunday.  


Santa Cruz High School is located at 415 Walnut Street.  The gym is located near the football/soccer field.

About Futsal

Futsal is soccer played in a gymnasium with a smaller ball that is specially designed to bounce less. The surface, ball and rules create an emphasis on improvisation, creativity and technique as well as ball control and passing in small spaces.  The intention is to give the players opportunities to play freely with limited intervention and stoppage of play from the 'coaches'.

Registration is still open for Girls U12 - U15. Click the button below to sign up.
