Welcome to the Joga Bonito way. 🤙🏽 💛 🇧🇷

We are a passionate group of individuals from all over the world who love the game of Futsal and Soccer. Our #1 goal is to create an environment that the entire family will enjoy. Over are the days of too much stress on the kids and families, which makes it almost impossible to develop a love for the game.


Since 2014, we have been finding and featuring some of the best players in Carolinas. Over 30 of our current or alumni players have made the MLS Charlotte FC's Discovery or Academy program, many others continue to play in college, and some have even received professional contracts. From coaching them on the ins-and-outs of the sport to honing their athletic skills, we’re proud to teach not only the love for the game, but to also impart the ideals of good sportsmanship, teamwork, discipline and loyalty.


The academy emphasizes in a player-centered approach which is based on the Brazilian principle of fun and play. We focus on individual motor skills, which are essential for youth development. Thus, we develop more skillful and intelligent Futsal/Soccer players.


Futsal TA's mission is to provide Futsal training to players who are looking to excel their Soccer skills. The academy develops players with a structured Futsal curriculum that concentrates on the technical, tactical, mental and physical aspects of the game.


Our players range from youth players, who are just starting their journey, to experienced players looking to refine their skills for competitive play. We provide a supportive and challenging environment where players can improve their technical abilities, decision-making, and overall performance in Soccer and Futsal.


Our club is dedicated to providing specialized training and development opportunities in Futsal. We aim to enhance players' skills, knowledge, and understanding of the game, with a focus on Futsal-specific techniques, tactics, and strategies.

We are part of the United Futsal and one of the only few clubs in the nation, only one in the Charlotte region, to join this elite league and be part of their Champion Cup Series, the most comprehensive youth Futsal program in the world. These exclusive elite events  provide our all-year round players with top level competition and a player pathway.

We also have a partnership with MLS side, Charlotte Football Club. This relationship provides our current players with referral opportunities to join Charlotte FC's Discovery/Academy programs, meet and greet opportunities with Pro players and staff, club day at Charlotte FC matches, giveaways, and so much more.


Training sessions typically focus on small-sided games, fun activities, and tactical exercises that replicate situations players encounter while playing Soccer. We emphasize individual skills such as dribbling, feints, and close ball control, as well as teamwork, communication, and strategic play.


Futsal has become an important part of player development programs, as it helps young footballers hone their skills in a controlled environment that encourages active participation, creativity, and quick thinking. Many professional footballers such as Messi, Neymar Jr, Ronaldo, Pelé, Iniesta and many more credit Futsal for enhancing their technical abilities and decision-making on the Soccer field.

I believe that futsal was the most impactful experience on his skill set as it challenged him in his areas of weakness. He has really enjoyed playing with your club. Thank you for such a fun program.
