Private Performance Training launches in Liverpool
Players can train with former England Under-19 and Everton midfielder Alan Moogan and a team of specialist coaches during a new series of 7 Elite Academy Private Performance training sessions from next month.
The small group sessions will be held in Liverpool every week from February 1st, featuring groups of just six players in age groups from Under-8 to Under-16.
They will be led by UEFA A-Licensed coach Moogan – who shared a changing room with Wayne Rooney at Everton – alongside some of the region’s best UEFA & FA qualified coaches.
Sessions will have a purposely small player to coach ratio, offering more scope to develop players’ skills in all areas, including dedicated goalkeeping groups.
Moogan, who recently joined 7 Elite Academy as Head of UK Coaching, said: “These sessions are an excellent opportunity for players to really focus on developing all areas of their game.
“It is well-known than youngsters benefit more when working in small groups, which is why we have developed our sessions to reflect this.
“We will have a maximum of six players in each age group from Under-8 to Under-16, so we can deliver very specific skills training to every youngster.
“We have recruited a team of very talented and highly qualified coaches, who have many years of experience in making the most of a player’s potential.”
The one-hour sessions will be held every Tuesday from February 1st at Litherland Sports Park, with younger age groups starting at 6pm and older groups at 7pm.
Moogan added: “We have designed a series of sessions that work on the core aspects of a player’s skills and decision-making abilities in a supportive and competitive environment.
“Sessions will include opposed, unopposed and game related practices, alongside varied 1V1 and 2V2 scenarios.
“Goalkeepers will have dedicated training with Liverpool FC coach Chris Owens & former England Futsal Goalkeeper coach Jordan Parker, who will work to integrate his practices into the main sessions each week.
“These sessions will be expanded in the future to include a far wider variety of training for players of all age groups and abilities.”
