Independent Football Academy
Our sole aim is to give young players a sporting chance to fulfil their potential and live their dream.
With over 26 years in the professional game, producing over 150 professional footballers in that period, IFA offers elite coaching and developmental training methods our players would expect at an elite level professional football academy.
We place great emphasis on players attending training on a regular basis to further their development. Our biggest two successes, Charlie Goode (Brentford) and Steven Alzate (Brighton and Columbia) never missed a training session.
IT TAKES MORE THAN 10,000 HOURS TO MAKE AN ELITE PLAYER.
Our Academy works with several professional and semi-professional football clubs around the Europe, including Crystal Palace Football Club
“The IFA Team were a credit to their academy, their behaviour and conduct was noted and we shall be inviting them back”
– Colin Barnes, Head of Recruitment of Crystal Palace Football Club
