About IR Academy

The IR Academy of Soccer Development is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and proud member of both US Club Soccer and Norcal Premier Soccer League.

Nearly 70% of IR Academy's membership live in the city of Elk Grove, CA. IR Academy of Soccer Development serves the community of Elk Grove and the Cosumnes River area of Sacramento, California.

IR Academy provides the opportunity for teams to play competitive level soccer without many of the costs typically associated with this level of play. This is a strong family-based organization that provides development and a higher level of play for those players that otherwise might not pursue competitive soccer because they cannot afford the expense.

The competitive level of soccer is not for everyone, as it requires a commitment to soccer and demands a dedication to training and development from every player and their parents. For those who want to focus on soccer, and desire continuous improvement of their skills, the IR Academy is a great step in their playing future.

Our coaches are dedicated to their teams, and our trainers are committed to providing advanced training, so that teams can successfully participate at the competitive level of soccer. Players' skills will be challenged and developed through play at the highest level. The coaches and trainers will be working together to continually encourage players to reach their highest potential. We strongly support both individual and team development in an environment that is fun and enjoyable for the players and their families.

The IR Academy was created to provide a unique soccer experience for those who have a passion for the game, and have the desire and the potential to play at the competitive level. Our Academy promotes enjoyment of the game through the spirit of sportsmanship and the excitement of competition. We believe in teaching life lessons to our athletes to further their development, both on the field and off.

We welcome players from all of the Sacramento metropolitan areas.


IR Academy of Soccer Development is dedicated to promoting the sport of soccer among the local youth and providing an outlet for players to train and compete. Our non-profit organization is community based and committed to the individual player's development.

In order to do so, we place emphasis on training that is appropriate for each player's age and ability level regardless of financial background. Our primary goal is the development of players from diverse backgrounds, into motivated performers.

The Academy would like to instill the awareness that success can be achieved with hard work, discipline and dedication.
