The England DNA playing philosophy

We want our players to maximise their potential in football, education and life. As well as developing quality footballers and well rounded individuals. We follow a structured coaching syllabus which adheres to the England DNA, ?LOVE THE BALL, LOVE THE GAME? philosophy.

The Independent Football Academy is structured to offer the same coaching standards and hours as that of any top professional category one or two club. With a player pathway that drives towards signing a professional contract with a Premier League or Championship club, we believe this philosophy offers them the best chance of success.

In Possesion
