Testimonial Youth Year
"I give boarding and the school (Bournemouth Collegiate School - BCS) ten out of ten for enjoyment. I will definitely recommend it to my friends. If you want to try something new, something unique, not just for football, but for the education too then this is the place to come to."
“IFX Soccer Academy in Valencia is great. I live in the residence so I am right across the street from all the pitches. We have 3 small pitches for younger kids, we have a big turf pitch with the stadium which is fantastic…really good place. We have a grass pitch which is one of the few clubs in Valencia at our level that actually has both turf and grass pitches..."
“Everyone in my team has been supportive… I am stronger and know the game better! – I have improved technically and I believe I have more awareness of what goes on in Spainish football."
"I have become extremely close with my host family - they treat me as if I were their own son. I am very happy here in Germany, and I am truly fortunate to have had this opportunity of a lifetime to pursue my soccer dreams."
"The program through IFX was fantastic, I certainly did not want to return home, especially with the opportunity to play in the Under 19s in a higher league."
"I became a better person through my year abroad and learned many new things. Going abroad gives you a new learning experience that you won't get anywhere else."
"I immediately knew that IFX was the perfect program for me because of the way it combines a typical high school abroad experience with playing for a competitive soccer team."
"My highest point soccer wise was when I trained with Alemania Aachen U17 for a week. They play in Bundesliga 2 and have played in the UEFA Cup as well"
