[FUTSAL] U.S. men's national futsal team head coach Keith Tozer has been appointed US Youth Futsal's first Technical Director. He'll be charged with developing a Coaching Education program and will oversee the recently established FUTSAL I.D. program.

Tozer has led the U.S. national futsal team coach since 1996 and has been FIFA Futsal Instructor since 2009.

“I am extremely excited about helping US Youth Futsal by developing a coaching curriculum, coaching manuals, certification courses and systems of play,” Tozer said. “Working closely with the coaches and players of the USYF will only help with the process of developing players for our youth national teams, which will then directly help fill the national team. I am fully convinced that futsal being a part of our players youth development will create the next generation of special players.”

Tozer will lead the five US Youth FUTSAL I.D. camps scheduled for Akron, Boston, Dallas, Kansas City and San Diego in the coming year, plus the US Youth Futsal Festival and US Youth Futsal Summit.

“Keith Tozer is a fantastic addition to the US Youth Futsal Technical Staff,” said USYF co-founder and Sporting Kansas City coach Peter Vermes. “[Tozer's] extensive experience will prove to be extremely beneficial to the overall development of our players and leagues across the United States.”
