Elite Player Program Description
FutsalETA has been granted USYF DA status of 1 of 16 inaugural clubs throughout the country (click here for details).  In year one our organization will form a minimum of 7 teams within the following age group pools:  U10, U12, U14 & High School boys and girls.  When training in our academy system each pool will carry a maximum of 15 players to include 2 goalkeepers. For USYF National competitions and MAFL regional match days teams will be selected from the training pools with a roster of 7-8 players each.  The focus will be on quality of training and competition between pool players as we will put our best foot forward when selecting rosters for the USYF showcase events.  Our development academy coaching staff will be made up of college coaches from the region assisted by experience licensed club staff and professional level players and coaches.

ETA PARTNERS WITH Own Touch & FutsalRVA

Since the end of the summer futsal academy season, ETA has worked with Own Touch Academy of Richmond on a partnership that will enhance player and team development.  This initiative will expose players to cutting edge technical training and high level tactics at game speed to ultimately sharpen the players skill on the ball, their ideas and movements off the ball in game situations, but most importantly their creativity, confidence and winning mentality.  ETA will launch Own Touch classes at Premiere Sportscenters in Yorktown and Williamsburg as well as rebrand its futsal academy to be called “FutsalETA” consistent with its new partner and their travel academy “FutsalRVA”.  Look for announcements to follow regarding Own Touch winter class offerings as well as camps, clinics and private training opportunities.  Visit http://owntouchcentral.com/frequently-asked-questions/ to learn more about the Own Touch program and look for the launch of the new website with FutsalETA and Own Touch classes coming soon.
