What does my child need to bring to the Soccer School?

A packed lunch, plenty of fluids, waterproof clothing, trainers and football boots, shin guards and sun protection during summer months.

Will any members of the first team be present at the Soccer Schools?

The first team train at a separate venue and must be committed to their training programme. This means that it will be unlikely that a player will be in attendance at one of our courses.

What qualifications do your coaches have?

All are UEFA/FA qualified coaches and possess valid Emergency Aid and Safeguarding Children Certificates. All coaches have been properly CRB checked.

Can parents stay and watch?

Unfortunately at the LFC Academy venue parents are not permitted to remain onsite once registration has taken place. However parents are welcome to attend the final hour of training each day if they wish. For courses not held at the LFC Academy, parents may be able to stay and watch but this will be at the discretion of the Head Coach who will confirm arrangements at registration.

What time do the Soccer Schools start and finish?

All times can be found on your confirmation email. Please contact us if you require another copy.
