F-PIC’s PROGRAM: Futsal Player Identification Camps:
2016 Futsal Canada U13/14 Girls Team with US Youth Futsal
Our F-PIC’s program is the first of its kind in Canada and features tryouts for elite futsal boys and girls players that compete against the United States Youth Futsal National Teams. The aim is to present high performance opportunities through some of the top futsal coaches in North America to our top youth players and prepare them for international competition.
The program started in 2014 when Canada faced the United States at the Pan American Sports Centre in Toronto. Tryouts and assessments run in November and the three-day competition runs after Christmas and finishes before New Year’s Eve. There are 14 spots available on each of the four teams (two boys and two girls) before engaging in an intense and tremendously valuable training camp to prepare for the matches. The camp is led by Canadian National Team Assistant Coach Lorenzo Redwood as part of a team of six elite coaches.
We are looking first and foremost for 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 while the Youth Olympics in 2018 in Argentina included futsal for the first time. Tryouts are typically hosted in the fall.
