"It is the most exciting time for the young Futsal players in the country. Players receive training from the best Futsal coaches in the United States ," said Soorena Farboodmanesh, Director of the Futsal I.D. Program.
The boys camp will take place at the New Century Field House in New Century, Kan. under the leadership of Keith Tozer, Orf and Boys Administrator Paul Roderique.
