Global Elite Futsal launch new FUTSAL programs in Tucson.
Global Elite Futsal is the first Futsal program in Arizona to incorporate the best practices, tactics and philosophies from the world’s leading youth programs into one single curriculum.
Global Elite Futsal is NOT a soccer club, but a FUTSAL program that focus on enhancing club players technical skills and game intelligence through FUTSAL training.
We are NOT affiliated with just one club in the Pima County area, but have an open door policy to all clubs in the area.
Our students/players are representing and playing club soccer in the afternoon and weekends in different clubs in the Pima County area.
We are a FUTSAL program and at Global Elite Futsal we utilize the Global Football Training curriculum as the foundation within our player education and development.
All coaches and players will follow the method and philosophy of the Global Football Training program lead by UEFA A License coach Kenn S Nielsen from Denmark.
Kenn personally crossed countries and continents from Europe to South America and from Africa to Asia, for nearly three years, mapping and analyzing coaching methods, cultures, footballing philosophies and talent development programs in all corners of the globe. Our players and students receive a truly singular training experience under his and the rest of the technical staff guidance.

The philosophy at GEFC is rooted in training and educating players.
Each player is encouraged to develop at his or her own pace with results measured by tactical and technical skill mastery.
We strongly believe that purposeful training produces permanent results.
The objective and mission of GEFC and our programs is to develop unique players by placing game intelligence and decision-making as the cornerstone of our training environment. GEFC will be accepting new students/players born in the years of 2003 – 2014 in our programs.
Our Global Elite Futsal programs strive to support the players, and we primarily consider our players as students of the game.
GEFC uses an inspirational and discovery-based learning process, and all programs and opportunities are offered to a wide range of players in an environment in which players are set FIRST, for them to achieve their athletic goals.
The Game of Futsal.
Futsal is a fast-paced 5-a-side indoor soccer game that is widely played across the world and is officially recognized by both USSF and FIFA. While it can be a sport in its own right, Futsal does not compete with mainstream soccer, but serves to support it.
Futsal is widely considered a valuable tool in the development of young players to assist them in becoming more technically proficient in situations of high pressure. This makes our Futsal programs a terrific way to allow players to improve their skills.
Key skills and techniques used throughout Futsal games and training, are all directly transferable to the outdoor game. Through Futsal, players have increased opportunity for:
Development of agility, balance, coordination and speed.
Enhancing comfort level with the ball, learning to make quick decisions while under pressure and in tight spaces, learning better spatial awareness, improving passing, dribbling, turning, shooting and ball control while under pressure.
1. Ball Mastery
Futsal is known worldwide for its value in developing technical proficiency with the ball. Among other things, the absence of boards, the tight space, and the sheer number of touches each player gets on the ball, (whether attacker, defender, or keeper) forces each player to develop ball mastery.
2. Speed of play
Futsal requires quick decisions and quick execution. The speed and intensity of the game helps each player learn how to think more quickly and act more decisively.
3. Agility and Balance
Futsal requires players keep their balance in tight spaces, with their center of gravity over the ball. Agility and quick footwork are developed as players adapt to the game.
4. Movement off of the Ball
Futsal requires that players without the ball constantly support teammates, anticipating proper position for receiving the ball, shooting, and defending. All players on the court, including keepers, must constantly be moving into better position.
Futsal encourages creative play. Skilled attacking moves, deft passing, and combination plays are all enhanced in futsal.
