Soccer Friends USA is proud to announce that our winter 2017 enrollment is now open and the new season begins the weekend of 1/2/17. As always, you can expect small group sizes (which means more individual attention for your child), the best coach-to-child ratio of any program, and the best indoor locations in Central Queens. We have the use of four excellent, warm and safe gyms in the Kew Gardens/Forest Hills/Rego Park area. These locations are perfect for your child to continue to play soccer while the outdoor fields and playgrounds are being blasted by polar vortexes and covered in snow drifts and ice.
We also wanted to let you know that in January 2017, we will have our FUTSAL SOCCER GAMES hosted by Soccer Friends USA. Futsal is a fast-paced, 5-a-side soccer game that is widely played across the world and is officially recognized by both the US Soccer Federation and FIFA, the world governing body of soccer. Futsal is a sport that is a derivative of soccer and played with five-player teams on a basketball-style court, with no walls and a smaller, low-bouncing ball. While it can be a sport in its own right, Futsal does not compete with mainstream soccer, but serves to support it. Futsal is considered a valuable tool in the development of young players to assist them in becoming more technically proficient in situations of high pressure. Great soccer superstars such as Pele, Zico, Ronaldo and Neymar grew up playing the game and credit futsal with developing their skills. This program is open for 5 year olds and up at all skill levels. Please note that the deadline for enrollment is December 20th you can enroll and pay online by going to our website www.soccerfriendsusa.com.
