Playing the Liverpool Way:
Liverpool Football Club is recognized around the world as one of an elite group of clubs with a true worldwide reputation. We pride ourselves in creating the best environment for the development of young players, both as footballers and as people. We have a very special philosophy which is well known by our players, staff and fans, is recognized all over the world and sets us aside from other football clubs. The characteristics of playing ‘The Liverpool Way’ were no more evident than during the 2005 Champions League final. Team spirit, hard work, determination and the ability to overcome any obstacles in life and above all play with dignity and fair play which are all the values and characteristics we look for in our players. For the last fifty years the club has been at the forefront of British and European football, winning numerous championships and European club tournaments. During this time, there has been a consistent tradition of developing top class players, particularly from the Liverpool Academy; Steven Gerrard is the ultimate example of a home grown talent who ranks at the very top of the worldwide game.
Through innovative and challenging sessions that include individual and group drills, small-sided games and LFC Academy skills challenges, players will be taken through a curriculum that encompasses the following pillars that are central to the club’s coaching philosophy:
TECHNICAL Sessions that allow the players opportunity to practice specific techniques/skills and repetition of that technique/skill, e.g. dribbling, passing, turning, forward moves, receiving and shooting etc.
TACTICAL Sessions that allow specific decision making opportunities and the ability to adapt and combat different pressures and systems of play with and without the ball.
SOCIAL Sessions to encourage players to interact with each other, problem solve, compete and work as a team.
PHYSICAL Sessions encouraging players to carry out fundamental movements as well as more game related movements.
MENTAL Preparation, brave with and without the ball, accepting pressure, freedom of expression and positive body language are all aspects considered in this area.
