Grand Rapids Football Club is proud to announce our 11th Sponsor for the 2016 season. Please help us welcome Garcia’s Futsal Academy!

The Coaches and Trainers at Garcia’s Futsal Academy camps will be focusing on developing attacking strong, smart minded soccer and futsal players that will work on 1v1 skills, nutmegs, individual skills, and ball mastery this will be incorporated with everyday fundamental soccer skills to make the complete player. The importance of Futsal in the development of the individual player is expressed through speed and movement off the ball, Futsal is a fast-paced game that requires players to think, act and execute more quickly than in a regular 11 v 11 game, tactics learned in futsal training can be applied and transitioned to the big field game.
