who we are

A non-profit organization in Amherst, MA USA

YFI has been hosting different types of international programs for high school and college students for several years with great success.  And 2017 marks the second year of its Leadership Through Sportsmanship in London, England for high school girls and boys soccer players.


Real Skills

The YFI Senators squad is led by very successful accredited high school coaches.  Those coaches work with Millwall Football Club and Queens Park Rangers coaches to help students improve their game, both on and off the field.

Real Play

Our squad, the YFI Senators, plays with and against academy level peers associated with each pro team that hosts our students.  In addition to regular matches, YFI Senators will compete in The Prince's Trust Football Festival.

Real Leadership

 YFI Senators learn what leadership is all about.  They sit in on sessions by coaches, trainers, and management that cover strategy, nutrition, health, and sports psychology.  The squad provides leadership working  with children, at-risk youth, and those with developmental disabilities through the community programs of our pro team partners.

See London

London is a remarkable international city, rich with history and iconic sights.  England is also where the rules of modern day soccer (or football) as we know them originated.  Of course, amidst all the training, playing, and leadership activities we have in store, there's no way we'll let squad go back home without seeing some of the sights in London.

A word from Daniel Edwards

Daniel is a Director and Coach of the College Football Academy for Queens Park Rangers in London, England.  QPR hosted our YFI Senators squad in 2016 and is extremely excited to partner with YFI on such a unique and exceptional opportunity for high school soccer players.

A word from Richard White

Richard is the Community Development & Health Improvement Manager at Millwall Community Trust.  YFI Senators will leave at the end of the program with an accredited FA (Football Association) Level One Certificate in Coaching Football.
