IFA’S philosophy is “Sport for All” meaning that we are inclusive rather than exclusive. Everyone irrespective of age, ethnicity, gender, background or ability is welcome at IFA. Our aim is to develop and motivate individuals to reach their potential and be the best they can be.

We at IFA have a passion for sport and our mission is to help more people in the community to learn, improve and play through grass roots sport. Incorporating this with IFA’s own brand of emphasis on fun and enjoyment this makes IFA the most effective and enjoyable sports academy in the UAE.

Our ultimate aim at IFA is to provide an environment in which members can learn new skills and the positive attributes of a healthy lifestyle whilst developing friendships and social awareness to benefit the community as a whole.

The IFA is far more than the UAE’s largest grass roots sport academy and a place for all ages to play. We bring together players, children families and friends so that everyone gets more out of sport.
