Liverpool FC has joined forces with Sports Camps UK to deliver a series of summer residential coaching courses for youngsters, including a football and English language learning option for international players.
The exciting new long-term agreement will give players aged 10 to 17 the opportunity to take part in residential programmes in the UK, learning to play the Liverpool way through football coaching sessions delivered by a team of experienced LFC coaches.
Courses will be delivered through a combination of player workshops and practical coaching sessions that follow the LFC Academy curriculum, allowing participants to experience a taste of life as a young LFC player and even enjoy a tour of Anfield.
The ultimate LFC experience, the courses are action-packed with coaching delivered by LFC coaching staff, strategy and tactics sessions, plus LFC Academy advice for young players on topics such as nutrition, fitness and a range of life skills.
Sessions will focus on the same principles and development priorities as the LFC Academy, giving participants an insight into the training programme that has successfully prepared many players for the Reds' first team.
This flagship LFC coaching programme offers one and two-week residential courses, with day course options available also, and will begin in July 2021. An English language tuition option is also available to participants.
Ian Rush, Liverpool FC legend and club ambassador, said: "The residential course programme is a really important project for LFC, so we are delighted to be in a position to announce this new partnership. We look forward to welcoming many young players onto these courses and build on the excellent experiences that have been delivered to date.
"This is an amazing insight and development opportunity for the participants who will get to live the life of a young LFC player on these weekly courses. They will provide a fantastic all-round education for the young players, both on and off the pitch, which is something that we are hugely passionate about at LFC.
"I look forward to seeing the future growth of this programme and I know the team are excited to be working with Sports Camps UK on these courses. We look forward to hosting many young players from around the world on the ultimate LFC experience."
