The Community Football Academy, also known as CFA, was founded in 2004 as a community club for the people of Leicester. Our initial aim was to provide coaching to children who did not play any form of mainstream competitive football. So far, we have successfully developed our foundation and have since strived to increase our reach and capacity.
CFA provides its Academy coaching for multiple age groups – boys and girls on a weekly basis. Fully qualified FA coaches deliver these sessions at Judgemeadow County College, which is also a Football Foundation Facility.
The CFA Academy was originally intended as a means to get children off the streets and into something positive which they could develop and hone their skills. The Academy is and always will be the Central Pillar to Our Success. Children of all ages, races and abilities are able to have a platform to unite by expressing and enjoying themselves through football.
