EIFA International Football Academies Student Safety And Welfare

EIFA - A Safe, Worry-Free Student Athlete Experience 10 Years Running

At EIFA, student welfare and safety is our NUMBER ONE PRIORITY. We want the EduKick experience to be as safe and worry-free as possible both for the players and the parents. Our team of dedicated professional staff is always available to assist and advise players with any issues that may arise during the course.

We understand that leaving home to study abroad for an extended period of time can bring uncertainty for both parents and students. The decision to study, train and live abroad is a big step and we appreciate the need for parents to feel confident that their son/daughter will be safe, properly mentored and protected while overseas with EIFA. EduKick take the safety and security of our students very seriously. We consider the students physical safety and mental health as our two most important priorities.

At EIFA we understand that if our student footballers are happy and feel safe and secure, they will be in an environment more conducive to achieving their fullest potential academically, athletically and socially. All EIFA company officers are university educated former teachers, coaches and professional football players that are now fathers ourselves. We treat every EIFA academy player as if he or she was our own child, which is why we refer to EduKick and its international players and staff as a “family”.

In all EIFA venues worldwide we have taken significant, calculated steps to ensure that all of our student-athletes are extremely well taken care of during their time with us on the course.
