Futsal Canada is the first and only organization in the country to have successfully established the first youth futsal player identification F-PIC’s program.

Established in 2011 the program has expanded from high level training to organized teams that have competed against the United States National Youth Teams. The primary objective of F-PIC’s is to present high performance opportunities to our top youth players and prepare them for international competition with the guidance and support with many of the best futsal coaches in the country.


The program started in 2014 when Canada faced the United States at the Pan American Sports Centre in Toronto. Tryouts and assessments usually operate in late summer/ early fall culminating in a three-day competition after Christmas and finishing before New Year’s Eve. Each year four full teams (two boys and two girls) are selected before engaging in an intense and tremendously valuable training camp to prepare for the matches. The past three years have been led by Canadian National Team Assistant Coach Champion, Lorenzo Redwood, as part of a team of elite coaches.

What we are looking for first and foremost are motivated and dedicated players who wish to be identified and trained in preparations for future international competitions. Futsal has its own World Cup through FIFA which should be the ultimate long-term goal of any player. Futsal was in the 2018 Youth Olympics in Argentina with the sport widely expected to be in the Olympic Games in under a decade. The opportunities exist, if you are willing to seize them.

If you are a league/club/organization wishing to host an F-PIC’s camp contact us. If you are a player interested in trying out you will see if your league owner/operator and interested in being considered to host a tryout please contact us. Futsal Canada does not discriminate against any affiliation a player, may have with a club or academy, we are simply looking for the hungriest and most committed to represent. We will even assist each player’s club/academy with developing futsal within their own organization as a way of giving back and enhancing the sport.
