International Soccer School Programs

Youth Year IFX Soccer School Programs in Europe

Our total immersion program for youth players, the Youth Year IFX gives players of all abilities, the opportunity to experience soccer and life in another country in a way no international soccer academy could. IFX places each player individually among one of our partner foreign club teams to train and potentially compete as a fully registered player for one full season, upon approval of their registration subject to restrictions set forth by FIFA. The total immersion on the foreign club enables players to develop within a fast paced European soccer environment, learning from both highly qualified coaches and their foreign peers.


Players are enrolled in a local high school to continue their secondary education while living with a carefully selected host family. For certain destinations, the management of the school and host family placement is carried out by one of our partner exchange programs. Thus, admittance into IFX’s Youth Year X-Change requires a favorable academic record and is subject to the requirements of our partner institutions. Players live with a host family during their entire stay, providing an invaluable support system and “home away from home.” The Youth Year IFX program requires a balance between school, family, and soccer.
