SUPERCHARGE TECHNICAL AND MOTOR SKILLS
Our brain-centred curriculum has been developed to take a player’s talent to the next level. If you’re serious about the game and you’re wanting to train like a professional, this is the curriculum you need.
BUILD STRONG MINDSETS
Your mindset will determine how you perform on and off the field. Confidence, resilience, and belief set up a player’s thought-life and as such, their habits, distinguishing them from those who haven’t focussed on the mental side of the game.
Memory, decision making and the ability for a player to analyse the most important information on a field are key factors for the future of the game. Developing these skills with the right training is critical to raising your level of talent.
IQ FOOTBALL YOUTH DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY
IQ Football believes the development of our youngest players is paramount. Players between the ages of 2 – 10 years are given the chance to master the game of football without the pressure of opposed practice. The FA has shown, through extensive research, opposed practice too early in a player’s life, presents them with a disadvantage.
In this key foundation stage, we focus on technical excellence, tactical knowledge, and maximum mental & physical capacities to help our players reach their full potential by working through our brain-centred curriculum.
Our Youth Development Programme includes in-house matches, smaller groups, and individualized attention.
Each session has a specific time slot tailored to the player’s age.
We highly value individualised attention, where coaches focus on each player’s needs and goals.
Our Youth Development Academy accommodates players from 2 to 10 years old. Each player will be placed into a group that suits their age and development.
Age 2 – 4
Age 5 +

Players are being raised in a fast-paced world that demands their full capacity but their environment is not conducive to their growth. Screen-time is debilitating their concentration, fine-motor skills and social abilities.
IQ Football uses brain-centred training to equip the players of today to be able to thrive as adults in their complex future.
IQ Football is South Africa’s only brain-centred soccer academy that develops a players’ unique intelligence with benefits showing on, and off, the field, setting them on a pathway of success. The professional game is no longer dependent on physical ability alone but, more so than ever, on a player’s brain. Training through an internationally developed curriculum under an FA qualified head coach enables players to reach their mental and physical potential.
The IQ Football Academy curriculum develops intelligent players for the professional game by utilising the latest research in cognitive football training methods, neuroscience, the player-centred model and mentoring.
Whether you’re a parent looking for professional football training from coaches who mentor children (regardless of their current level of football); a club player looking to raise their game mentally and physically; or a player wanting to seek football scholarships in the USA, we have the pathway for you.
We offer players the opportunity to train 1 – 4 times per week. The choice is yours. If your schedule permits it, training as often as possible per week will help accelerate a player’s growth.
Brain-centred training is a form of learning that is based on the latest scientific research on how the brain learns. It was once believed that intelligence was a fixed characteristic that barely changes throughout one’s life. This has now been refuted. There is a physical change in the brain when it learns, which is now known as neuroplasticity. Learning in an effective way improves brain-functioning, resilience and intelligence.
Football is a complex sport which presents multiple opportunities to develop cognitively.
The concept behind IQ Football is to develop intelligent players by utilising the latest academic research in: Neuroscience, Brain-Centred Football Training, Player-Centred Training and Coaching and Mentoring. The aforementioned methods help speed up and improve the mental processes of a player, including: concentration, spatial awareness, and speed of thought.
Brain-centred training has a hugely beneficial effect on the player in terms of football development. Their technique and skills improve quicker as a consequence of working on challenging mental drills. In addition, the positive effect on mental capacities are not necessarily sport specific – attributes such as belief, resilience, decision making, awareness, attunement and working under pressure are also improved.
- All group training is charged monthly regardless of attendance.
- Fees are charged monthly in advance, and are due by the 7th of the month.
- Termination of membership shall be subject to one month’s written notice and payment thereof.
We’re always looking at ways to help ‘develop intelligent players’ – on and off the field, so we created ‘tools’ to assist in your child’s cognitive development.
- Ball – R500: The IQ. Ball has been shown to improve: attention and concentration, technique, perception, coordination and timing.
- IQ. Branded Size 4 Football – R120: Enabling your child to play at home gives them more opportunity to increase their ball mastery skills and confidence.
