Our IQ Football coaches create an environment that encourages players to thrive on and off the field by mastering IQ Football’s five pillars spelt in our acronym – BRAIN.
Players learn the power of BELIEF, RESILIENCE to overcome any challenge and bounce back after any loss, ACCURACY to be achieved in all their technical, physical and mental work, INTEGRITY to themselves and their team, and finally players learn how to harness their unique intelligence through understanding and practising techniques that harness NEUROPLASTICITY on and off the field.

Players are being raised in a fast-paced world that demands their full capacity but their environment is not conducive to their growth. Screen-time is debilitating their concentration, fine-motor skills and social abilities.
IQ Football uses brain-centred training to equip the players of today to be able to thrive as adults in their complex future.
IQ Football is South Africa’s only brain-centred soccer academy that develops a players’ unique intelligence with benefits showing on, and off, the field, setting them on a pathway of success. The professional game is no longer dependent on physical ability alone but, more so than ever, on a player’s brain. Training through an internationally developed curriculum under an FA qualified head coach enables players to reach their mental and physical potential.
The IQ Football Academy curriculum develops intelligent players for the professional game by utilising the latest research in cognitive football training methods, neuroscience, the player-centred model and mentoring.
Whether you’re a parent looking for professional football training from coaches who mentor children (regardless of their current level of football); a club player looking to raise their game mentally and physically; or a player wanting to seek football scholarships in the USA, we have the pathway for you.
We offer players the opportunity to train 1 – 4 times per week. The choice is yours. If your schedule permits it, training as often as possible per week will help accelerate a player’s growth.
Brain-centred training is a form of learning that is based on the latest scientific research on how the brain learns. It was once believed that intelligence was a fixed characteristic that barely changes throughout one’s life. This has now been refuted. There is a physical change in the brain when it learns, which is now known as neuroplasticity. Learning in an effective way improves brain-functioning, resilience and intelligence.
Football is a complex sport which presents multiple opportunities to develop cognitively.
The concept behind IQ Football is to develop intelligent players by utilising the latest academic research in: Neuroscience, Brain-Centred Football Training, Player-Centred Training and Coaching and Mentoring. The aforementioned methods help speed up and improve the mental processes of a player, including: concentration, spatial awareness, and speed of thought.
Brain-centred training has a hugely beneficial effect on the player in terms of football development. Their technique and skills improve quicker as a consequence of working on challenging mental drills. In addition, the positive effect on mental capacities are not necessarily sport specific – attributes such as belief, resilience, decision making, awareness, attunement and working under pressure are also improved.
We’re always looking at ways to help ‘develop intelligent players’ – on and off the field, so we created ‘tools’ to assist in your child’s cognitive development.
