Next Level Soccer Training

About Us

Next Level Training has been working with southwestern Pennsylvania’s youth since 2008.  Offering training and league play for both futsal, as well as soccer.  Next Level is the regions premier organization when it comes to strengthening core skills, tactics, and knowledge of these games.  Led by ex-pro and coach Justin Evans, Next Level’s mission is to improve players’ overall ability while fostering the love of the game. 

 

Why Next Level?

Justin and his accomplished staff take a personal interest in each and every child that participates in their programs.   With years and years of coaching experience at all levels combined with professional playing careers, the staff knows what motivates and really works to bring the player to the next level. 

 

Why Futsal? 

Futsal has been around for decades and is growing in popularity in the U.S.  The game rewards the same basic skills, tactics, and knowledge as soccer, but has some fundamental differences:

  • Ball Control:  Futsal is played on a court without walled boundaries. This improves ball control skills and techniques that are required to perform in such small spaces.
  • Speed of Play:  With limited space and constant opponent pressure players learn to play and think fast.
  • Mandatory Support:  Without a wall as a crutch, players must make supporting runs when their teammates have the ball.
  • Continuity of Play:  Action is continuous so players are forced to continue the play instead of stopping and watching.
  • Knowledge:  With four court players and all the basic options of the outdoor game in non-stop action mode, players' understanding of the game is enhanced.
  • Framing the Goal:  The goal and penalty area are a perfect size for narrowing the angle so teams learn to frame the goal to score goals.
  • Touches on the ball:  In a statistical study comparing Futsal to indoor soccer with walls, players touch the ball 210% more often.
  • Fun:  Players enjoy the challenge of playing a fast-paced-fun-skill-oriented game that tests their abilities.

 

The best soccer players in the world credit futsal to their success on the pitch:

“…it really helped me become who I am today.”

– Lionel Messi

 

“If it wasn’t for futsal, I wouldn’t be the player I am today”

– Cristiano Ronaldo

 

“Futsal was important in helping to develop my ball control, quick thinking, and passing…also for my dribbling, balance, and concentration…futsal was very, very important.  No Doubt.”

– Pele
