TFA Football Academy

The Football Academy (TFA) is a niche soccer academy head quartered in Dubai , with FA & UEFA qualified coaches we focus on the local talent pool, to identify the talented, passionate and committed and guide them to playing the highest level of soccer.

Sport Science Classes

Football is a complex sport requiring many factors to produce top footballers. We conduct monthly sports science classes to explore the various facets needed to produce well-rounded footballers such as sports psychology, fitness, and tactics.

Weekly Technical Sessions

Technical skills are the foundation of good football. The skills needed vary from one position to another, with a goal keeper needing different skills than a field player. Our weekly sessions work on the English FA's 5 fundamentals of soccer: Dribbling, passing, shooting, heading and touch.

Weekly Tactical Sessions

Football often comes down to the strategy that a team employs at the end of a close game. We examine and teach team tactics, preparedness and the organizational skills needed to play effective football. Utilising UEFA designed 8 V 8 sessions, we deliver 90 minute sessions training our players in tactical principles of pressing, transition, counter attack and fluid movement.

Set Play Sessions

50% of goals are scored from set play. We organise a weekly session improving set play, freekicks, corners and even throw-ins.

ADVANCED FOOTBALL TRAINING

TFA builds the most elite players through focusing equally on technical (dribbling, shooting, crossing, heading, tackling ), tactical, strength and fitness and mental strength.

Incepted in January 2016, our mission at The Football Academy is to identify the best local football talent, ages 14-18 years old, develop these talented players, and take them to the next level.

TFA takes a unique approach into its programme, using a successful formula of fitness, technical and tactical sessions to develop the complete football education. Each of our players is also given a weekly personal training program to further work on their specific fitness and technical needs.

Our players are carefully selected and scouted with the aim of continuously developing a spirited team able to challenge for silverwares and produce world class players. TFA is delighted to have the opportunity of working with Dubai's finest players.

Nutrition

When not in the gym or on the training field young players need to be able to recover from the effort and avoid injuries. A healthy body is a healthy athlete which his why one of our priorities is to inform and educate the importance of Nutrition. Adopting a healthy lifestyle is a key element of our more educational approach to football and we want to ensure all our players have a clear understanding of the “good” and “bad” in food.

Pride & Passion Meets Success

From inception, the success of The Football Academy has been built on the quality of our coaching. We truly believe that football isn’t a one-dimensional game, so we combine different philosophies when it comes to teaching our students the principals of soccer.

Our coaches come from different parts of the world, equipped not only with the relevant professional certifications they all contribute with their diverse coaching and playing experience to delivering rich, full-scale soccer learning curriculum.

Our Mission

The Football Academy was formed to provide the opportunities for youth elite soccer players to train and compete in Dubai and internationally.

Our mission is to develop soccer skills, as well as maintain an environment that embodies the core values of integrity, leadership, perseverance, respect and teamwork while enhancing self-esteem, promoting self-confidence and cultivating a life long passion for the beautiful game of soccer.

While our teams strive to compete at the highest levels of competition, TFA is fully committed to player development.

We intend to accomplish the mission with experienced coaching staff that represent the most effective and comprehensive club soccer program in Dubai.
