Liverpool Football Club has announced on 12 January 2022 with regards to the launch of a new International Academy in Singapore.
2022, MARCH 08 – Together with partner WFC Sports Management, the Reds’ youth coaching will provide unique opportunities for boys and girls, aged five to 17, to learn to play ‘The Liverpool Way’.
With the programme kicking off in just a few months’ time, the young players will advance their skills on and off the pitch, developing their technical, tactical, physical, mental and social capabilities through age-specific coaching sessions.
A wide range of year-round programmes are planned, including ongoing player development sessions and soccer schools in the holiday season.
Through the unique coaching methods of Liverpool FC, there will also be a focus on improving key life skills of the young participants, such as communication, teamwork, decision-making, problem-solving and organisation.
The implementation and development of the coaching programme will be overseen by an LFC lead coach, who will be based in Singapore to head up the project. Local coaches will also be involved and will benefit from a comprehensive coach education scheme, which will include the LFC International Academy global accreditation, to deliver coaching ‘The Liverpool Way’.
Former player and LFC International Academy Ambassador, Ian Rush, said of the partnership: “It’s incredibly exciting for us to be bringing LFC International Academy to Singapore. The programme will provide excellent opportunities for local players to learn to play The Liverpool Way, following our curriculum which is based on the philosophy and practises of the LFC Academy here in Liverpool.
“On our international coaching programmes, the aim is to provide the very best possible experience for the young players so with that in mind we will be focused on both coach education and player development to ensure we meet our objectives.”
WFC Sports Management Director, Rajbir Chopra, said: “We are pleased and excited to partner Liverpool FC, one of the most decorated clubs in football. With the huge fan base in Singapore, this programme will benefit young kids and teach them the Liverpool way of football.”
The Official Opening of LFC International Academy Singapore is scheduled to be sometime in May with plans of a Liverpool FC legend gracing the event. More details will be shared soon.
The academy offers 6 age group (U-6, U-8, U-10,U-12, U-14 & U-16) trainings for boys & girls. We will be kicking off with a 3 day March holiday camp on 14-16 March at The Rainforest Sportshub from 9:00am to 12:00 noon. The full academy programme starts from 22 March 2022.
