Join us for our first ever CISC Futsal Camp! At the Charlotte Independence Soccer Club, we believe the game of futsal creates an environment that allows players to simulate and develop important skills and abilities that are transferrable to an 11v11 soccer game. With a weighted ball and smaller field of play, research indicates that individual’s playing futsal receive the ball six times more often than they do when they are playing 11v11 soccer, allowing players to perform more individual techniques such as dribbles, moves, fakes, feints, passes, controls, combinations, and runs with and without the ball. This camp will concentrate on decision-making in 1v1 situations, confidence on the ball, receiving the ball under pressure, defensive and offensive formations, and playing styles, and so much more.
This camp with be run by formal US National Futsal player and CISC coach Pat White. Coach White is in the top ten of most games played and goals in US futsal history. In the 2004 Futsal World Cup, he played in every game and was the USA’s second-leading scorer in the tournament. The US lost in quarterfinals to Brazil and the great Falcao. White is the only male player in US history to win two CONCACAF gold medals. One in 1996 CONCACAF championships in Guatemala and other in 2004 CONCACAF championships in Costa Rica. Staff will also include Emily McMillan, who has been dedicating her winters and weekends to the CISC girl’s futsal players. In Emily’s first year coaching futsal, she qualified 2 CISC teams to the US Youth National Futsal Championships in Kansas City. Both teams did extremely well in their first Championship. Especially the 2009 girls who took home the championship and the gold medal. We will also have other CISC directors and staff coaches.
