About NPC Futsal
NPC Futsal is an organization with comprehensive programs designed to enhance a player's overall development in all aspects of futsal - - technical, tactical and psychological. Coach Paul Ngend started the NPC Futsal Academy in 2014 with 3 international partners. Our year round program is designed for players from the earliest ages to young adults - at all skill levels.
Each year 4-5 NPC Futsal players are selected to play on the US National Team or play professionally in Europe and South America.
Our coaches have many years of professional futsal experience as players and coaches, both internationally and in the U.S. We are a year-round club that teaches the real way of playing Futsal, in its purest form. We believe that the most important part of a coach or trainer is to provide players with positive experiences that allow them to enjoy themselves while learning the techncial and tactical aspects of the game.
