FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SSA Futsal Returns to Join Season Three of United Futsal's Champions Cup Series
Ft Lauderdale, FL (August 29, 2023) - SSA Futsal is thrilled to announce its return to Season Three of the highly anticipated Champions Cup Series for the 2023-2024 season.
Since its formation in 2015, SSA Futsal has long been a pillar of talent development, utilizing the art of futsal to complement traditional outdoor play, and over the years, they have catapulted numerous players to collegiate and professional success. Notable talents like Ian Fray of Inter Miami and Alex Freeman of Orlando City have emerged from their program, as well as Ahmed Yaquib and Jaden Chantack, who, having grown through the ranks of SSA Futsal, have secured spots in renowned academies like Barca Academy and Colorado Rapids Academy.
Guided by a seasoned coaching trio with over 25 years of experience, Chris Rue, Jason Ford, and Wallace Coke all bring a wealth of expertise to the futsal courts, ensuring that every player benefits from top-tier training. As a founding member of the CCS, SSA Futsal's journey with United Futsal dates back almost eight years, as the Champions Cup Series has continuously provided the club with the platform to showcase its athlete’s talent and commitment to excellence.
"Our goal is two-fold," states Chris Rue, Club Director for SSA Futsal. "For our younger teams, we're focused on honing skills and fostering a deep understanding of the game, and for our older teams, it's about competing at the highest level and clinching victories."
Competition and victories don’t come without preparation, and preparation for success is woven into the fabric of SSA Futsal's philosophy. From the Snickers Cup, a weekly competition that infuses fun into skill-building, to intensive team trainings and the technical teachings of “CADD” – Concentration, Anticipation, Decision Making and Deception - SSA Futsal leaves no stone unturned in their pursuit of excellence. By harnessing these attributes through futsal, players emerge not only as skilled athletes but as strategic thinkers on and off the pitch.
"Our vision revolves around cultivating traits that transcend the court," says Rue – and the decision to rejoin the Champions Cup Series was a no-brainer for SSA Futsal. The opportunity to engage in year-round, top-tier futsal competitions across the United States aligns seamlessly with their dedication to player growth and development.
This season, SSA Futsal takes their partnership with United Futsal to the next level, embarking on a journey that promises skill refinement, competition, and camaraderie. This collaboration underscores the commitment of both organizations to fostering the next generation of futsal and soccer champions.
