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 with selected students being afforded the opportunity to act as ballkids at international games; attend the Madrid Cup, meet current and former international players and receive exclusive invitations to IFA events.

The partnership was hindered as a result of Covid-19 however, the programme will resume as soon as possible offering participating students the opportunity to not only ‘learn together’ but to develop as a supported cohort of footballers who will train together, under the guidance of IFA coaches, after college.
