Welcome to Rhode Island Oceaneers

Ride the Tide 


Futsal is indoor 5v5 soccer – no walls. Oceaneers Futsal has been the premier Futsal program in Rhode Island since 2004. Oceaneers Futsal trains teams or individuals. Futsal is the format of small-sided soccer that is recognized and supported by FIFA and UEFA with World and European Championships. The United States Futsal Federation holds regional and national championships. It is a five a side game, played with smaller goals and a smaller ball with a reduced bounce. Players are constantly placed in situations where they must play under pressure or in confined spaces. It places a considerable demand on the development of techniques, movement, tactical awareness and fitness.


The East Providence Oceaneers were approved for provisional membership by Soccer Rhode Island on April 6, 2009. The EP Oceaneers will operate in East Providence. Recreational soccer is offered for boys and girls U4-U14. Competitive programs are offered. The Rhode Island Oceaneers were an American soccer club based in Pawtucket, Rhode Island that was a member of the American Soccer League. The team was established in 1974. That season, they won the league title. The Oceaneers played their home games at Pierce Field in East Providence, RI.


Offering the best training regiment in all of New England. Oceaneers Academy can set up team or individual programs for futsal or soccer. Our academy program runs weekly training sessions at our facility or your field. Players are invited to increase their passing and foot skills and train under the direction of regional and nationally experienced Oceaneers coaches and players.  Our skills classes are designed to teach basic through advanced ball skills as well as improve on already existing skills in a competitively fun environment. Our instructor will focus on player's ball control, speed, timing and coordination through specific drills that simultaneously improve the player’s agility, fitness and confidence with the ball 


Our unique Soccer & Futsal Camp opportunities combine learning and fun. Full Day Programs for children U8 through U14 & evening programs for High School players provide our local communities with a quality summer and pre-season activity. In these programs, players are grouped according to age, size and ability in an atmosphere set to challenge each player to raise their game to new heights by providing Professional Soccer Training to the players. Our camps are customized to meet the needs of our players.  The Course of Instruction has been designed by Professional Coaches to provide teams, coaches and players with the same, expert level of training received by Professional Clubs. Our camps emphasize the development of our players technically, tactically, physically and psychologically so they will enjoy the game for the rest of their lives.  With these techniques, our campers enhance their ability and develop winning skills and techniques that will make the difference. Skill training is a primary element in our programs, but it is combined with a heavy emphasis on tactical understanding. Fun, mastery of advanced skills and game tactics are given special attention. Attacking goal and finishing are given considerable attention both in training and in match play. The program provides an in-depth look at soccer and gives campers an opportunity to master skills and techniques.


Since 2004, Oceaneers Futsal League has been the only true futsal league operating in Rhode Island. All teams representing Rhode Island at the regional championships have played in the league. The only national champion from Rhode Island has played in the league. Any club or town team interested in the sport of Futsal is welcome. Teams from Rhode Island and Massachusetts are participating in U8 through adult divisions. In addition, Oceaneers Futsal will be running a summer futsal league for recreational and competitive players. 


The Rhode Island Oceaneers offer a number of tournaments throughout the year. We have been the annual host of the United States Futsal Federation State Cup. In addition, numerous one day tournaments have been held at each of our venues. Oceaneers tournaments are also working with college showcases to bring more college recruiting opportunities to Rhode Island.
