Uniform approach throughout the club.

IFA North is built on the belief that successful soccer clubs have a clear philosophy of play for all teams at all ages, which aligns with the vision of the club and is representative of the surrounding community. 

Our coaching staff implements training sessions according to a curriculum established by the Technical Director and the IFA Technical Staff.  All coaches are provided with daily training sessions following a yearly periodization.  All of our teams implement the same systems and style of play.

Our fall and spring curriculum is executed in one-week and two-week blocks based on a set of tactical themes.  The winter training has a stronger emphasis on individual technical development and creativity within a competitive futsal framework.
