The Liverpool FC Academy has set a benchmark for the development of young players both on and off the pitch. The 56 acre facility is host to the some of the finest sporting and educational facilities in the country achieving category one status in the new Elite Player Performance Plan (EPPP) system.
Liverpool Football Club's International Academy Soccer Schools run a number of programmes from the Academy facility in Kirkby during the school holidays.
Up to 100 children can attend each soccer school and will be coached in all aspects of the game over a two, three or five day course. Children will be educated in techniques such as passing, receiving, dribbling, running with the ball and shooting in a way that recognises the ability and needs of each individual.
We wholeheartedly believe that the overall development of young people can be further enhanced by spending time on our programmes. Participants will be inspired with a sense of enjoyment, teamwork and respect for other children in an environment that nurtured players such as Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher, who went on to not only be LFC first team regulars but role models to millions around the world.
Each course offers:
- Professional and dedicated LFC coaching in all areas of the game
- Expertly designed practices, activities and skills sessions
- Learn to play the Liverpool Way via the technical development of areas such as ball control, dribbling, passing and shooting
- Mini-tournaments and Academy skills challenges
Every child will take home a certificate of attendance signed by Ian Rush.
