Dr. Timothy Kremchek, Team Medical Director of the Cincinnati Reds and also Medical Co-Director for Cincinnati Futsal added, “As futsal continues to increase in popularity in the tristate, keeping technique, nutrition, and other methods of injury prevention in the conversation is imperative. I can’t think of a more qualified organization to partner with in this regard than Cincinnati Futsal.”
Sam Fiore, Pro Coach and Youth Technical Director, spoke on behalf of the organization, “We feel privileged that two of the best in the business, Dr. Cha and Dr. Kremchek of Beacon Orthopedics, will be taking care of our players. I was lucky enough to have Dr. Kremchek take good care of me as a player and he and his team were first class. The services, care, and sideline expertise that are now available as we begin building our team will really push our organization to the next level. One of the most exciting elements is the injury prevention and sideline support for our players. This partnership is big news for futsal in Southwest Ohio.”

About Cincinnati Futsal
Cincinnati Futsal is excited to promote futsal in Ohio and abroad, both as a sport and as a method of player development. We recognize the value futsal can have in supporting the development of our young players. Futsal provides additional touches on the ball in a tighter space and in a faster environment than soccer. We want all players to become technically stronger and quicker with the ball.
To accomplish this mission, Cincinnati Futsal includes a Men’s Professional Team, a youth academy, camps and leagues giving players the opportunity to train in order to supplement and support their select soccer experience with their preferred clubs. Our goal is to work with each club in Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky and surrounding areas. www.Cincyfutsal.com
