UFA is a high performance youth football academy focusing on developing players from the age of 6 to 17.
Our vision is to develop skills, passion, and love for the sport, through healthy practices, and programs inspired by and modelled on Europe’s biggest football clubs. Development of young players is the highest priority at Ultra Football Academy. The academy’s greatest goal is to develop young, technical footballers, so that they can play at the elite level. UFA development aside from player’s sporting ability, aims to include academic education and growth of champion’s character in all assigned tasks. We genuinely believe that the next generation of football stars must have a champion attitude both on and off the field to succeed.

Our sessions are well planned, longer and we practice active coaching before, during and after the game. Over the past decade, speed, agility, and coordination (SAC) training has become an important component in the development of elite football players. At all levels – youth, amateur, and professional SAC training helps players develop or refine key physical abilities. We have recognised the importance of this, and all our sessions include SAC component. For that reason, our players have advanced balance, acceleration and overall speed, along with great technical abilities.
Ultra-Football Academy teaches the following values: respect, fair play, responsibility, trust, teamwork.
Our mission is to develop champions and leaders of tomorrow.
