Soccer & Futsal

Futsal Academy

Futsal & Soccer Manager: Christina Aulbach
Technical Director: Gary “Rossi” Ross

Spooky Nook Sports is proud to offer some of the best soccer and futsal facilities in the region. We have multiple full-sized outdoor fields, one of which is a domed field for year-round use. Indoor facilities offer four Sport Court official futsal fields and two turf fields. The complex is designed to host the region’s finest soccer tournaments, leagues, camps, clinics, instruction and open play. At the Nook we create a vibrant soccer atmosphere that exudes energy and encourages a love of the game!

Futsal is played with a weighted size #4 ball that has 30% less bounce. Kick-ins are used for restarts and teams are allowed a 1 minute time out per half. There are no shoulder charges or slide tackles and there is a 5 second rule on restarts. Futsal is a great game for the development of young soccer players as the tight, technical and tactical situations prepare the players for the outdoor game of soccer. A maximum of 12 players are allowed on futsal rosters at Spooky Nook Sports. (USYSA age groups.)

Additional Information

Futsal Academy Tryouts

Spooky Nook Sports will hold open tryouts for boys and girls ages U9 through U19 for the winter futsal academy. The club-friendly futsal academy allows players to continue participating in club soccer while playing through December, January, and February in The Nook’s Futsal Academy program. The creation of a futsal academy at The Nook will create a player-centric program that emphasizes the total technical development and education of players.

As we lay a strong foundation, the futsal academy approach will introduce good training habits from day one, develop proper mechanics, and take technique to the next level through quality developmental repetition.

Tryout Dates: November 1 & 8

Tryout Fee: $25 includes official tryout t-shirt

One-on-One Private Lessons

Gary “Rossi” Ross will conduct all private lessons. Rossi was a two-time collegiate All American at Lock Haven University, played professional soccer, and has over 25 years of coaching experience. Rossi was among a select class of coaches to achieve the NSCAA Master Coach Diploma, the newest and most advanced coaching education program in the U.S. It is designed for coaches who not only have a desire for coaching the sport, but also are passionate about advancing the game in the United States, and having influence on the American sports culture.

Fee: $100 per private lesson

Group Lessons

Small Group Training is for 2-5 players. The benefit of small group training is the individualized focus each player receives. Sessions will be customized to suit each group’s developmental needs. Players in a group must agree to the same training topics. Training sessions will include, but are not limited to, control, passing, dribbling, first-touch, ball mastery, heading, and shooting.

2 players: $60 per player
3 players: $45 per player
4 players: $35 per player
5 players: $30 per player

‘Your Choice’ Kicker Clinics

Are you interested in having your child participate in Kicker Clinics but cannot find a time that fits into your schedule? ‘Your Choice’ Kicker Programs offer flexibility. You pick a day and time in which you would like to hold a 4-week program, then invite your child’s friends and neighbors to participate. We’ll provide you with an electronic flyer to forward to them. They’ll be able to go to our website and register for ‘Your Choice’ Kicker Clinics. After registration, we will tell you which one of our coaches has been assigned to your program. That coach will see you, your child, and their friends at the first class.

Please note that in order for us to conduct a ‘Your Choice’ Kicker Clinic, we need a minimum of eight enrollees. Also, as a way of thanking you for scheduling the program, we will waive the registration fee for your child.
