River City Futsal high performance program is the final stage of development before players join our senior playing squad. This program is designed to prepare players for senior futsal. 


Our High Performance Program is an academy style program where players under go talent identification through trials. The program is delivered in a highly professional environment where players are treated as elite athletes and are given the best opportunities to play high level futsal. 

Our High Performance Programs focus on, but not limited to; fundamentals, attacking principles, defensive principles, set pieces, systems of play and specialised goal keeping all in line with the River City Futsal philosophy. 

Regular Program Structure

Our regular program is delivered over a full season from July to January which is separated in terms (breaks during school holidays) and includes weekly 75 minute high intensity training. 

In the skills acquisition phase, the squads will be taken as whole groups with the entire coaching group and players will go through an intensive skills development cycle. This phase is tailored to player's individual development. 

In the game training phase, players will be coach by their individual team coach who will identify game play problems and tailor the sessions to such identified areas. In this phase, players are able to apply the skills and formations they have learnt into game related scenarios as well as different tactical and set plays.

2023 Season Structure

The 2023 season will kick off in mid-July with trials across 2 designated sessions. Trials for the 2023 season will be held on the following dates;

  • Trial 1 - Saturday 15 July 2023
