Southern Futsal - Atlanta

Development Academy


The ATL Futsal DA is designed for players who want to take their game to the next level. Teams train once a week during the fall and twice a week during the winter on advanced futsal techniques and tactics.

ATL Futsal DA teams compete against other futsal clubs in local and regional games and tournaments. Teams that are successful at regional tournaments are invited to compete on the national stage.

The DA program combines high level coaching on the court with a Sport Psychology Module off the court that all players can access when they join ATL Futsal DA. ATL Futsal believes in helping players reach their potential and be well-rounded players and individuals by focusing on skill acquisition and most importantly behavior.

Development Academy players will learn skills and habits through futsal that will enhance their outdoor soccer abilities. Futsal is NOT soccer, Futsal is its own sport so therefore players are challenged in a different manner that prevents burnout. Players will be taught futsal specific techniques, tactics, and behaviors.
