Our Approach to Player Development  


Football IQ Academy offers a wide range of football programs for individuals and small groups. However, we share one common philosophy – To Develop Players For Life!  The key objective is to encourage good individual and team play and to ensure that the training environment is a place of learning, fun, controlled competition, and education.

The philosophy of our coaching is based on the development of learning through a comprehensive training system, which involves resolving technical and tactical situations through game play.  This approach emphasizes the importance of decision making in sport, thus contributing to the maturation and personal autonomy of students.


Our main motivation is to develop the students’ technical and tactical skills in football while integrating the student in an active and healthy environment, resulting in their growth as a person and as an athlete.

Key Objectives: 

  • Make the game fun to practice and play
  • Teach good sportsmanship and respect for all
  • Provide a safe & educational experience that meets international standards and parents’ expectations
