Iron Sharpens Iron:

This isn’t your typical football league. The IDFFL is designed to teach, mentor, and prepare athletes to compete at the highest levels of football.

Our unique approach is similar to coaching strategies used at the professional ranks. Each player will improve their football skills through constant repetitions in a competitive setting. Every coach and founder has played in the NFL, CFL, NCAA, or CIS. They know what it takes to make it at the next level. And they are dedicated to teaching those skills to the up-and-coming athlete.


EAT, SLEEP, TRAIN, REPEAT | Your Season Starts Today! The IDFFL has already trained a number of athletes in the CIS, NCAA Division 1, as well as NFL and CFL professionals. To make it easier to train with us, IDFFL will now be offering its high performance football training membership at participating SST (Sports Specific Training) locations, our new sports performance affiliate.

REGISTER NOW! Monthly memberships starting as low as $69! Ages 10+ (CIS players welcome)

What the people are saying:


Kevin Surnlin- Texas A&M Head Football Coach

“I’ve watched the whole thing (7 on 7 football) change over time. The ability…to be coached and work year round, that’s so important”- Kevin Surnlin, Texas A&M Head Football Coach.

- Kevin Surnlin, Texas A&M Head Football Coach

Michael Topolinski

“The coaching that is offered by IDFFL coaches, Jordan Younger and Anthony Cannon, is bar none the best I have received in Canada. After training with these guys and following  their guidance, I would recommend the IDFFL experience to any player who wants to become a great football player and compete at the top level!”  Michael Topolinski

- Michael Topolinski – Michigan State University

Jimbo Fisher

“Look at the NFL. It’s the way its spread out…I think the kids are getting developed better… across the country right now because now football has taken on all the 7 on 7(elements”)- Jimbo Fisher

Kenny Ladler

Coach Cannon was a great influence to me in my development before I started football at the college level.   The knowledge he shared with me helped build the foundation of my game today.   He was also able to prove to me that you can make it to the NFL from any school if you are willing to work hard enough for it.” Kenny Ladler – Safety at Vanderbilt University 

- Kenny Ladler – Vanderbilt

Shea Pierre

“Every week they pushed me to my limits not only mentally but physically, which allowed me to see the game of football a lot faster. They run by far the best off-season program that I’ve been to in the greater Toronto area because the competition and skill level is so high along with the coaches having pro level experience, creates unbelievable knowledge for every position.”  Shea Pierre

- Shea Pierre – Edmonton Eskimos
