Effective this fall, 2019 USYF Futsal 365 Academy is proud to announce its new Academy and Curriculum Director, Rodrigo Castro. Rodrigo was born in Brazil and played his entire youth career at Sao Paulo FC alongside many professional players, such as Kaka and Julio Baptista. Rodrigo received full scholarships to play soccer from National American University and Northwood University in the USA.
After completing his Bachelor Degree in Entertainment, Sports and Promotion Management, he pursed his passion for developing young futsal and soccer players through a futsal and soccer curriculum. It is only natural to have that philosophy as he grew up playing and developing his skills in the futsal courts of Brazil.Rodrigo is one of the most qualified futsal coaches/directors in the area as his resume below shows:
Director of training and owner of Brazilian Soccer Training & Promotion from 2007-2014.
Director of training for Sportika Sports 2014-2016.
Director of Futsal for Sportika Sports 2014-2019.
Rodrigo currently holds:
United Soccer Coaches National License (Former NSCAA)
United Soccer Coaches Advanced National License (Former NSCAA)
United Soccer Coaches Level 1 Futsal License
Academy Executive Director, Niko Alexopoulos was quoted saying, “Rodrigo’s passion and vast knowledge for the game of futsal comes alive every time he is on the court mentoring and developing young players. All one must do is just watch and listen to him as he conducts his training sessions. Rodrigo has a loyal player following and parents that swear by his training methods, philosophy and results. I have spoken with many parents that credit their son’s or daughter’s futsal and soccer development to Rodrigo. Rodrigo is known for saying, "Always put the ball on the ground and take good care of it, using your feet. You have to want to keep the ball at your feet all the time while playing soccer/futsal, this is the only way to master your technical ability and confidence to own the game and excel at all levels.” We are extremely excited to have someone of his caliber of experience, character, and devotion to developing young players to lead the USYF Futsal 365 Academy in New Jersey.
The US Youth Futsal Academy, (Futsal 365) is a premier national futsal development program that offers players a unique opportunity to train and compete with players from other soccer clubs that are at the same skill-level. The program is designed to complement, not compete with, a player’s regular soccer training with their own club teams.

Director Of Coaching - Ronald Villatoro
Ronaldo Villatoro has a great passion and experience for soccer and particular “futsal”. Many of you may know coach Ronnie, as he is known, in the Ocean and Monmouth Counties from training with his company, Tecnica Soccer. Coach Ronnie is highly qualified and for those players that have had the opportunity to train with him, they realize how engaged he is in the training sessions. He participates, guides and teaches his players alongside with them as he is one of them. He does not just sit on the sidelines providing directions but steps in and shows players how it is down. This is a great way to teach/coach as players respect someone who can walk the walk and can visually show them what he is looking for.
Coach Ronnie recently had the opportunity to try out professionally in Sweden and Finland where he learned and trained extensively under Patrick Walker, previous trainer of the Swedish under 21 national team. Currently he holds an NSCAA advanced national certification and a USSF license as well as a Futsal Certification. Ronnie began his coaching career in 2012 under the guidance of Rodrigo Castro who played for the Sao Paolo Academy in Brazil.
