Winter Training powered by Barefoot Futsal

Gaston United is excited to partner with Barefoot Futsal to provide their excellent and unique style of training. 

This is a 9 week program (dates below) with the hour long training session broken into a Practice + Play model. The first 15-20 minutes will be dedicated to ball mastery rooted in authentic South American style Futsal. Barefoot Futsal have designed a truly one of a kind curriculum, incorporating various unconventional methodologies: barefoot, blindfolds, music, control imprinting, complex manipulatives. Let's just say, it's probably not what you're used to, but we think you'll love it!

Players will be provided shirt, shorts and socks to be worn at each training session. We will provide the balls, you do not need to purchase one but if you or your player want to buy one, please wait until you have attended 2 sessions so the Barefoot Futsal staff can help you select the apporpriate ball. Players must wear shinguards and non-marking athletic shoes, they are playing on an indoor basketball court, no cleats allowed. 

All sessions are held at Gaston Day gym: 2001 Gaston Day School Rd, Gastonia, NC 28056
