DC Hyper Futsal is the first American futsal club to sign a direct partnership with one elite professional futsal club in Brazil. The partnership with Pulo do Gato Futsal from Campinas will provide a common ground access for coaches and athletes from both countries to practice and play tournaments together exposing the experiences from both cultures in and out the futsal court. In 2018 the Pulo do Gato players Felipe Nazario, Gabriel Mendes, Henrique Yuji, Guilherme Brugineri and Joao Paulo Rodrigues along with Coach Jeffo Novaes spent a few weeks in Washington DC training with DC Hyper and last summer our young athletes Stiven Jimenez, Matt Matos, Lowen Jamison, Gianluca Benavides, Amaris Derby, and Luka Bentt were in Brazil for 2 weeks along with both coaches Wilson Matos and Marcos Chantel training at Pulo do Gato facility and playing games against some of the best futsal youth programs in the world.
Now in December players from both teams are gathering together to play a tournament in Spain against some of the best youth futsal teams in Europe and South America.
Both clubs DC Hyper and Pulo do Gato are now sponsored by Athleta.
In USA coach Jeffo and 3 players from Pulo do Gato
