VUSC has taken a number of initiatives to help improve our players’ technical skills. As winter approaches, we are bound to indoor activities instead of playing outside. FUTSAL is an effective way for VUSC players to play indoor soccer on a gym floor, while being trained by professional soccer instructors with more 1:1 instructions (7 to 1 student to instructor ratio). International Soccer School of Excellence (ISSE) will provide our players an awesome opportunity to be trained by the pioneers of Brazilian Futsal in Minnesota.
At the end of each 8 week program, your child’s technical and tactical skill and understanding will have that Brazilian Samba polish! On the final week of the session, the participants will have the opportunity to showcase their skills participating in a Holiday Futsal Tournament (free to VUSC FUTSAL participants). We strongly suggest all VUSC players (Age Groups 9 through 17) participate in this opportunity to become better all around players.
Technical Areas of Development: Ball Control in tight spaces, Better Passing Skills, Better Dribbling Skills
Tactical Areas of Development: Movement off the Ball, Improved Defensive Skills, Improved Offensive Skills

Parents… going to a performance and watching your child can be stressful. We all want them to succeed at everything they do. But for most adults, you are only watching and stressing over one kid. As a coach, they are all your kids. How am I going to encourage this one, how am I going to get this one to be more disciplined, this one’s grades, weekend choices, building confidence, push this one, pull that one, keep this one happy even when they don’t start, keep this one feeling like they are adding value to the team even though they don’t play, etc. etc. Multiply your concerns times the number of kids on the team – that is where good coaches are.
