Semester & Year Long Soccer Academies & Soccer Programs




The Youth Year IFX program, a soccer exchange program and the latest alternative to international soccer academies, soccer camps, and boarding soccer schools, gives high school soccer players the opportunity to compete within a foreign youth soccer club while studying abroad at a foreign high school and living with a host family.

With official partnerships with academic exchange institutions, the IFX soccer exchange program provides a unique opportunity for immersion into a foreign culture through soccer.





Most international soccer camps and soccer boarding schools train participating players in large groups amongst themselves, but our soccer exchange program enables players to:

  • Participate in the normal training activities of the foreign soccer club
  • Compete as fully registered players of the youth team according to their age subject to FIFA regulations and approval by National and State Soccer Federations
  • Learn from licensed European soccer trainers
  • Learn from other highly competitive European soccer players


This advantage of being the sole IFX participant on the foreign squad forces rapid technical development and enhances the players’ ability to learn and adapt to a foreign environment. Players also learn tremendous life skills in communication, foreign language, and take away a heightened sense of accomplishment.


The program is open to both high school age girls and boys, who have a good scholastic record, a strong interest and desire to excel in soccer, an interest in experiencing a foreign culture and language and are looking for an alternative to an international soccer academy.


The Youth Summer IFX, our Summer Soccer Camps alternative, also provides young American players with a unique two-week long summer program.
