[U.S. YOUTH FUTSAL] U.S. Youth Futsal recently hosted the nation's first-ever futsal coaching course in Mansfield, Mass. FIFA instructors Keith Tozer and Constantine Konstinled 22 coaches representing 12 states and Bermuda through the two-day event, complete with classroom and court sessions.

“This was a historic event,” said U.S. Youth Futsal executive director Jon Parry. “It's not often in any country you can attend a course led by the national team coach.”

Tozer, the long-time head coach of the U.S. men's national futsal team and U.S. Youth Futsal's technical director, was impressed with the quality of the coaches.

"There is a very bright futsal future ahead in the United States," he said.

U.S. Soccer has been advocating the use of futsal as a component of training for its elite youth clubs.

The inaugural course participants included Rafael Amaya (Colo.), Tom Bellen(N.H.), Andre Berenzon (S.C.), James Boden (Mass.), Craig Canavan (N.Y.), Jay Eidson (Mass.), Soorena Farboodmanesh (Mass.), Jeff Lamy(Mass.), Max Latona(N.H.), Jason Miller (Mass.), John Montanaro(Mass.), Otto Orf (Ohio), Jon Parry (Kan.), George Pope (N.H.), Peter Rickards(Bermuda), Paul Roderique (S.C.), Khano Smith (Mass.), Ty Stauffer(Ky.), Kyle Teixeira (R.I.), Andy Tucker (Mass.), Guillermo Uribe (N.C.) and Bruno Victal (N.H.).

Amaya, who coached Honduran star Roger Espinoza as a youth player in Colorado, and Smith, a native of Bermuda, played in MLS.
