Junior Academy

 

Spirit of Liverpool is a Premier Soccer Club.  Our Elite and Junior Youth Academy is the foundation of a long term player development program, providing our young players the opportunity to maximize their potential. Our aim is to provide our children with a platform to show off their talents, learn new skills and improve their technique. Our training is done in a fun, inclusive and challenging environment, all under the guidance of our highly qualified Spirit of Liverpool coaching staff.

Individual player development is very important therefore this will be our main focus. Players will learn core moves such as toe rolls, stepovers, fakes and feints. However, soccer being a team sport, we also focus on the fundamental techniques such as passing, controlling, First touch, and dribbling. We also teach the principles of defending (keeping possession), attacking (the ability to move off the ball) and team play. A balance between individual skills and team play are stressed, with players encouraged to try their moves in game conditions.
