The Elite 96 Program is the most prestigious futsal player identification program in the United States and Australia. Players will have the opportunity to attend a 2 hour camp run by professional players and coaches from top clubs from the top futsal clubs around the world.
The United Futsal Association and Xavi Closas, head coach of FC Barcelona B have created a curriculum designed to provide players and goalkeepers technical, tactical, and physical and psychological skills from world-class trainers and players. Training is comprised of a variety of exercises including goalkeeper-specific instruction. Players spend quality time with the professional camp staff getting exposed to an international style of play while building the skills required to succeed on and off the field.
The camp will consist of technical exercises, futsal speciﬁc skill challenges and competitive gameplay. Only 96 players will be accepted to compete in each camp location. Local coaches will assist the professional staff and will be able to adopt the techniques utilized with their clubs after the camp is over.
Each age division is broken out into one 2 hour session. The first hour will be a closed session for camp participants and Elite 96 coaching staff. The second hour will invite local coaches and parents to participate in a 30 minute presentation and 30 minutes of observing skill challenges and competitive gameplay on the court.
Registration includes access to the 2 hour identification camp as well as all other camp-related costs including staff, registration, insurance, etc.
