IFA Performance & Development Programme
In September 2017, ICD collaborated with the IFA to launch a Performance Programme for young footballers transferring to post-primary level education who chose to attend ICD and had been successful in trials at the College.
Participants on the programme receive additional training from A’ Licence IFA coaches. Year 10 players identified as being of the required standard will be offered a place into the Irish FA Academy.
As a beacon of good practice for football in NI, the Irish FA awarded the College the Schools’ Quality Mark Accreditation at Gold Level.
The Irish FA hosts a primary school tournament/fun day, at ICD, which highlights the facilities and uniqueness of the College where students under the guidance of the Irish FA Employability and Education Team will be offered a programme of coaching education.
