ICFA is the International Children's Football Academy.
We host summer camps, weekend clinics, Sunday clinics, and Sunday Academy Sessions for children in the Netherlands. We use fully-qualified UEFA coaches to host our sessions. We try to keep our player/coach ratio to 12 players to 1 coach.
We are the only native-speaking fully qualified English language football school in Amsterdam. Our coaches understand expats, we are expats ourselves. We hope to welcome you soon.
ALL CLASSES AT OLYMPIAPLEIN!
New Academy Classes Start on 10/11 September at Olympiaplein from 10 am on both weekend days. Please see our Year Calendar for full dates. As usual we expect to run 3 blocks of 10 - 12 lessons taking into account school holidays.
There are no lessons in Amstelveen this year. The facilities in Amstelveen were no longer to our liking and the Olympiaplein facilities are far preferable in terms of location and accessibility. In the colder months we move to an indoor facility near Beethovenstraat.
