About Our Academy

Inter Futbol Academy is a true player development training & prep program that helps to develop, train, build skillful, athletic, confident players that are inspired by their passion for the game. We are located at Badgett Field Sports Complex 4901 Ball Camp Pike, Knoxville, TN 37921. Our mission is to provide the highest quality development training to allow our players to fulfill a goal of playing soccer to their fullest potential and for many is to play college soccer. The PDT Sessions (Player Development Training) are weekly sessions built into our teams and schedules throughout the year that work on developing of the complete player.  We think "a little outside the box", using the "diverse styles" of the world's game. Our focus is that soccer players PLAY. But often too much time is put in the wrong aspects of training and inconsistent play. The Inter Futbol Academy soccer is designed for “playing” the game the right way. Our international style of training is focused on getting our players to play the game from its grass roots...the streets, yards, courts and fields. Teaching our players to take the creative ball retention and improvisation of small space control into the competitive team format for the whole field. Play when you can,where you can. We don’t train by boring and complex team drills, but develop our players by model, demonstrate and reacting to the game itself. Our main focused is to raise each player’s awareness and knowledge that consistently and quality of play is the highest priority in developing into a complete soccer player. We will use “Functional Training” as well as teaching a wide range of skills and technical moves to help their in personal development.  There is a "bridge" These sessions are geared to develop proper techniques for player’s individual performance as well as teaching game knowledge and developing technical and tactical play

Youth Academy

Academy soccer is a small sided developmental program for 4-9 year old players. At this age it is extremely important for players to begin the skills and knowledge of the game the proper way; not by "dumbing" the game down but adapting to their level. Winning games is not the focus of the Academy and while games will be played, we will focus on teaching simple and advanced tools of the game to accelerate their growth & development.

Competitive Club Teams
IFA will help train any player from various clubs and organizations but does not operate "club soccer". Our focus is utterly and completely training and player development.
S.P.D Summer Program
IFA small side (3v3 & 5v5) is played through summer and winter time which is called the off-season. For more information Click here
