Our ‘Player Centered’ Approach

Long term player development (LTPD) and players enjoying soccer are at the core of our playing and coaching philosophy.

We feel an attacking style of play based on effective possession of the ball is the best style to improve learning and development.

To develop creative players with comfortable midfield attributes, freedom of expression is vital in an environment that promotes individual decision making.

Players need to be encouraged to express themselves without the fear of failure. Young players will encouraged from trying new things and not be criticised if they make a mistake. Coaches will always praise effort and application.

We always prioritise what is best for the player, keeping them at the centre of our development model.

Long Term Player Development Model

We develop all players at the LFC International Academy in 5 key areas, with the player at the centre of this model.

WE ARE LIVERPOOL. THIS MEANS MORE.
