I can’t wait to see how Tulsa’s best stack up against the world.”
Coach Leo Meireles has extensive coaching experience, including coaching both sports (futsal and soccer) in different countries (Brazil and USA), different ages (from U6 to Adult), and at different levels (from rec to semi-pro).

Futsal provides repetition over and over again, and everyone learns best through repetition.
