Welcome to Inter Africa Football Academy
Ten years ago, post the 2010 FIFA World Cup hosted in South Africa we established one of the first soccer schools in Cape Town namely the Mini Soccer School. Our ambition was a simple one – To share our experience and passion for the game with young like-minded players by providing them with a great place to train, learn and develop their football capabilities. As time progressed we became more relevant, player centric focused, dynamic and innovative to the point where we won our first international tournament in 2018.
Year after year we had to face the reality that our U12’s were going to leave us as they out grew Mini Soccer. Something had to be done! In 2020 we established Inter Africa Football Academy as a not-for-profit academy with full league status sanctioned by the South African Football Association. The academy continues to maintain the core values and standards of youth football development set by Mini Soccer and more from U6 to U18.
Inter Africa Football Academy lives and breathes this passion, everything the academy does is driven by the ultimate goal of developing each player to achieve their personal best. The training programmes are delivered all year round by professional coaches through a team session environment that challenge a players ‘whole’ capability – how a player responds, thinks (cognitive) and uses their technical skills to create or capitalize on opportunities (both on and off the field). Cognition is the mental action or process of acquiring knowledge and understanding through thought, experience, and the senses, which is then applied to decision making in football.
