Club Development Webinar Series: Building a Futsal Program

Futsal has been a growing part of NorCal Premier Soccer’s programming and development for the past few years, including our introduction of the first-ever NorCal Futsal State Cup. As more of our clubs are adding futsal to their programing, we welcomed futsal experts Vava Marques and Rob Bell to offer clubs advice on how to build a futsal program of their own.

Marques, Director of Soccer at Stanford Strikers, has been coaching futsal for more than 30 years, including 20 with the U.S. National Futsal Team. His squads have qualified for the FIFA Futsal World Cup three times.

Bell, Futsal Program Director at Dublin United, has previously been involved with the sport with the Ballistic Bulldogs Futsal Club, which he founded and ran for 10 years. During his time with the Bulldogs, Rob guided the club to 20 major U.S. championships, including an appearance in the semifinal of the World Futsal Cup in 2019. Additionally, Bell has written several futsal books including “Winning Futsal: The secret to success in the youth game,” and “Winning Futsal II: Basics of the 3-1.”
