What an UNBELIEVABLE President’s Day Futsal Weekend at Central Jersey Futsal.
The holiday weekend started with League play on Sunday with many teams playing the game they have come to love in the Central Jersey Futsal 8-week league play.
That was followed by the President’s Day Futsal Cup hosted by Central Jersey Futsal, where over 340 players had the opportunity to compete for medals for the first time in front of their parents in an indoor setting for quite a while. The tournament saw some fantastic play and talent on display on both the girls and the boy’s side.
The weekend included tryouts for the Champions Cup Series and many ELITE players from top soccer clubs and academies came to try and earn a spot in their age groups for the Nationals and Worlds to be played at the end of July in Orlando Florida. Central Jersey Futsal is one of 24 founding organizations for this National and International event which offers a pathway to the top level of futsal competitions, training, and opportunities to be seen be international coaches.
Lastly the weekend would not be complete without the tryouts for the Women’s Futsal team, which Central Jersey Futsal is the exclusive sponsor. Once again top-level talent competed for a spot in the newly formed Elite Player Program which will begin competition at the upcoming USFF Atlantic City Regionals.
The tryouts included players from previous USFF Regional championship teams and in fact a couple of players are two-time USFF Champions. So, the level is extremely high, and the quality of futsal will set the standard for the area’s female futsal players. Central Jersey Futsal is always at the core of bringing futsal awareness to the soccer community, not only as a primary development tool for soccer but as game by itself. We would like to expose youth soccer players to opportunities and pathways to a higher level of competition and exposure.
We thank everyone who attended, competed, watched and made it a great fun futsal weekend.
Niko is someone who believes passionately that futsal should be intentionally used as a tool for developing soccer players year-round and come first in the developing process at the younger starter age groups of 3-12 years of age. He has a massive amount of experiences, observations, thoughts and ideas from being submerged in the futsal community as a player, coach and operations director waiting to be released that could truly benefit the futsal community as well as the soccer coach that is just getting into the futsal methodology as a soccer development tool as well as the futsal game itself
