MISSION:

To provide young athletes of diverse backgrounds an opportunity to compete at the highest level of futsal possible by educating them on futsal and life values. These values include leadership, teamwork, work ethic, respect and honesty.

ABK is endeavoring to introduce Futsal for what it is, an entirely different sport that closely relates to Soccer. Its relation means the youth Soccer player of West Michigan now has a new avenue to showcase their skill by learning a new sport.

These players will be able to enhance their abilities to be successful in a game that relies on technical ability, and dynamic decisions. It is our mission at ABK to bring Futsal to the forefront of Youth American Sports and produce players that can compete at the highest levels of the game.
