About Us


Established in 2003, the London Football Academy is a professional coaching organisation, specialising in the coaching of boys and girls aged 5 – 14.

We deliver innovative courses that excite and inspire your child - or your money back.

The LFA believe that children participating in sport must do so in a safe and secure environment. We operate a strict child protection policy. All coaches are FA qualified, CRB checked, and possess up to date FA credited Child Protection and Emergency Aid certificates. We aim to have a player-to-coach ratio of 16:1 as recommended by The FA

The LFA was started by Martin Egan in response to fellow parents' need for their children to participate more actively in sport. With obesity rapidly becoming the number one cause of disease and ill-health, the need for children to remain active and energetic has never been greater.

Interest in sport at a young age has also shown to reduce incidences of crime, drugs and vandalism. Sport is a major catalyst in driving young people away from criminal activities.

The LFA is totally committed to developing children as both players and individuals

Working closely with local Government and primary schools, the LFA deliver safe and fun coaching sessions. We have successfully run after-school clubs and holiday soccer schools for over eleven years, and now coach over 3,000 children every week.

Unlike many other coaching companies, we are run on a full-time professional basis. We offer a winning blend of fun and discipline and bring specialist knowledge, creativity and experience to deliver courses your child will love.

Watching the very youngest players play the game at grassroots level seems a world away from the game played by the senior players in the elite game.

However, our vision of developing technically excellent and creative players starts with one of our soccer schools or after school clubs - the best introduction to the world's greatest game!

Here at the LFA we create FUN coaching environments which encourage your child to develop their technique, skill, creativity and game-understanding.

LFA soccer schools are also a great place to make new friends, and catch up with old ones!

To enjoy the game children need coaches who are brave enough to encourage expression without a fear of failure and who also have knowledge of the variety of coaching methods that can be adopted to help your child learn the game.

Here at the LFA we do. We know how.
