e2elogo ICFDS Training Academy is a scheme that enables learners from 16-19 years of age to approach education and football in a flexible environment. Our scheme is tailored to meet the individual needs of each learner. We work with the learners to develop a comprehensive skill set that will help build confidence in the class room and on the football pitch. The aim of the ICFDS Training Academy is to help learners to achieve their ambitions, through employment, education through colleges or training in an apprenticeship. Our various partners work along side us to help us to reach our goals.


The meeting rooms at Garforth Town Football Club are used by the learners and trainers to work through key skills, qualifications in ASDAN and Sports Leaders awards. The learners also develop team building skills and relationships through playing football on the 5-a-side courts as part of the course.
