With a rich background in professional football spanning from Brazil to Switzerland, Coach Leo's journey in the sport began in 2013 following the completion of coaching diplomas with the Swiss Football Association. Drawing from his experiences training juniors at various clubs, including FC Hakoah, FC Seefeld, and the World United Football Academy (WUFA), Leo's passion for football stemmed from a desire to impart the joy he experienced in his own youth.

Their mission is to ignite the same fervour seen in children across Brazil as they engage in the art of futsal. We strive to introduce them to the distinctive style of play while nurturing their creativity, flair, and stamina. Classes cater to all age groups, ranging from Under 4 to Under 16.

Coach Leo provides a range of training options, from private and semi-private sessions to open classes and team training, held across various locations in Singapore. Whether your goal is to refine your child's technical prowess or introduce them to the beauty of the game, they offer tailored programs to suit every need.

In 2017, they ventured into competitive play by entering our first two teams into the JSSL Singapore Leagues under the banner of the Brazilian Lions. Their aim is to provide a platform for players seeking to elevate their skills and challenge themselves against peers. Training sessions are held twice weekly, supplemented by friendly matches outside the competitive season.

The youngest teams, the U6 and U7 Brazilian Lions, engage in 30-minute matches consisting of two 15-minute halves with unlimited substitutions. As players progress, the U8 and U9 teams focus on transitioning their skills from small-sided futsal pitches to larger fields. With twice-weekly Brazilian Lions Team Training Sessions, the coaches prepare players both tactically and mentally for their league fixtures, fostering their growth and development on and off the field.

Get in touch today today to kick start your child's love for the game!
