Florida Crushers

Our road to Spain!

The 2018 USYF National Champions Florida Crushers U9 Boys Futsal Team needs your help fundraising with the opportunity to represent the United States in the Benjamin Division at the World Futsal Cup in Barcelona, Spain December 26-31st , 2018.

Futsal is a variant of football (soccer) played on a hard court, smaller than a football pitch, and mainly indoors. It can be considered a version of five-a-side football. Futsal is a very intense and fun game to watch. It requires quick thinking in tight situations, agility and excellent ball control.  Our team has been playing futsal since they were 4 and 5 years old.  Futsal is not as popular in the states as it is in other countries, so the fact that they are invited to compete at this level is a testament to their skill and dedication.

This amazing group of boys train very hard all year round and never give up with unwavering dedication and heart. They traveled to Kansas earlier this year to win the USYF National Championship for their division after winning the SE Regional Championships in Naples, Florida. Now they are preparing for the World Futsal Cup just outside Barcelona in Blanes, Spain later this year with the opportunity to compete against some of the best teams from across the globe. They will be competing in the Benjamin Division and are the the only American team invited to play in this group – which is a huge honor and accomplishment all on its own!  The kids are very excited to represent their country at this prestigious event.

We are trying to raise money so the entire team can go and need your help.  Traveling to Spain with a bunch of 8 and 9 year old kids is no small feat. The team would like to thank you in advance for your donation to support their expenses which as you can imagine is a financial burden to several of the children’s families on the team. Your contribution helps pay for the children’s tournament travel and expenses,  and provides  OPPORTUNITIES that our team would not have otherwise.  

We appreciate your support and look forward to a successful trip!
