Professional futbol players will tell you that the key to maximizing player development is TRAINING, TRAINING and more TRAINING. But not only are the number of training sessions important, the QUALITY of training is critical as well. Inter USA Academy prides itself in offering high quality training utilizing the latest approaches developed in Europe and South America through our former professional futbol player coaches. All of our staff have over a decade of professional playing experience, coupled with UEFA and USSF licenses. Before you commit to playing for a club, every player who is seeking professional quality training should ask two important questions: 1) Who will my trainer(s) be? and (2) Where can I see their experience and qualifications?

Inter USA Academy utilizes a professional training curriculum based on the latest training concepts and methodologies. With Inter USA Academy you will receive training that is:

As a result, tactical, technical, physiological and psychological elements are never trained in isolation. Everything is included, with the main concern being that every exercise is organized around (at least) one of the four moments of the game and the tactical principles of play:
