At International Development Academy, we wanted to give players the chance to experience everything that is so great about being an IDA player, without the full commitment of attending an academy full time.
The solution? Create short-term programs where student-athletes can come and train, play and immerse themselves in the IDA culture. Whether you are looking to boost your game before you head off to college or are just looking to experience soccer in Europe, IDA has an option for everyone to take that next step in their journey.
IDA Summer Camps offer a full-time, professional training schedule whilst allowing participants to experience European culture. This is the ideal program for any young, hungry players who are looking to break out of the norm of traditional Summer Camps and to take their game to the next level.
The IDA Player Experience is designed specifically for more advanced players with the goal of playing at the next level. By integrating directly into the IDA Residential Academy Program, participants will experience the day-to-day life of a full-time IDA student-athlete.
The Men's Trial program is for 16+ year old soccer players looking to fulfill their dream of playing soccer in Europe while getting exposure to quality competition, coaching, and scouting. IDA Men's Trial programs are run by top-level IDA coaches and local men's teams' head coaches who are invited to scout for talent.
IDA Pre-Season is a program giving players one to three weeks of fitness testing, progressive training and comprehensive preparation for the season ahead. With 12-15 hours of training plus 2 games per week (all recorded), participants will be putting themselves on the pathway to success here.
IDA Prep Camps are the perfect fit for aspiring players looking to experience the professional academy life. By integrating elite training, games with local academies, performance insights, and pathway guidance, this program gives players first-class preparation for the next level.
