Futsal is an exciting, fast pace, small sided football game that originates from South America in the 1930s. The nature of the game places a large emphasis on technical skill and ability in situations of high pressure and is subsequently an excellent complement for the 11-a-side format.

Our NLS Futsal Academy is here to provide the training and educational opportunities for children to enable them to develop their skills, individual talents and abilities as players, by providing a total holistic approach with our development programs. We will achieve this by following the player development pathway set out by the FA. We will provide our players with a solid foundation for the future and growth which will benefit Football and Futsal in all areas including coaching and player development. The Academy philosophy is founded on holistic approach, recognising that improving a player’s technical development must go hand in hand with the advancement of each player’s maturity as well as their emotional and psychological well-being. Our programme’s will focus on 4 key target areas being Motor skills, Cognitive skills, Personal skills and Social skills.

At NLS we use futsal as a development tool and we strongly believe that the game of futsal offers outcomes not always achieved with technical football coaching alone.  All the staff delivering are qualified Futsal coaches and are passionate about using the sport as a development tool for young aspiring football players. We believe that futsal plays a fundamental role in producing the very best technicians within the game of football.
