One of the nation’s premier youth training and competition organizations, Michigan Sports Academies (MSA), is proud to announce the addition of ABK Futsal Academy, the top youth futsal academy in the nation! ABK Futsal Academy will join Michigan Futbol Academy, alongside River City FC. This addition will provide the optimal environment for athletes to develop throughout the entire year in both soccer and futsal.
ABK Futsal Academy is heading into it’s 6th year of providing quality Futsal products for boys and girls ages 3-19. Fabian Rodriguez is the founder and director of coaching of ABK and started the club in 2012. Fabian was first introduced to Futsal in 1996 by a Brazilian exchange student. This led into an interest in the sport and the many similarities he saw in the street soccer game he grew up playing. In 2001, he started using the game of futsal as a teaching tool to further develop soccer players. In 2008, Fabian started Ole SC and implemented an internal summer and winter futsal program to compliment his youth soccer training. The program continued to develop and became the initiation of the futsal movement that we see today which has led to the creation of futsal leagues, camps, training, tournaments and eventually the ABK Futsal Academy.

“If you’re looking to choose a futsal program look no further than ABK. I have worked closely with their staff and they have one of the best futsal programs in the United States. They know how to build high level players, along with building life skills and character.
