CFA Pre-Academy Teams

CFA Pre-Academy teams will continue to serve the development of players at all levels of futsal experience. Pre-Academy teams will compete mostly at a local level in sanctioned events including the Columbus Futsal League and some teams will attend various tournaments. Pre-Academy players will have the opportunity to advance and attend the same regional and national events as academy teams. Individual players will work toward attending USYF State ID trials and transferring their futsal skills to the outdoor game. Players are encouraged to participate in our futsal free play and street soccer pick-up during the off-season to hone in on creativity and individual skill building during unstructured play.
