Free football coaching sessions this summer

Albert Dock Liverpool has teamed up with Everton in the Community and the LFC Foundation to offer free football coaching sessions to visitors this summer.

Albert Dock Liverpool has opened an artificial football pitch this summer, giving visitors to the iconic attraction the opportunity to brush up on their football technique in a series of free, fun, inclusive, football coaching sessions.

From July 24-August 11 the North West’s most visited free tourist attraction will host Summer Football on the Dock, involving coaches from Everton in the Community and the LFC Foundation demonstrating the tricks of the sport at Mermaid Courtyard (next to Tate Liverpool).

Boys and girls of all ages and abilities are invited to drop by and join in on the action – with no pre-booking required.

Alongside basic skills and drills, EitC will also provide sessions involving its disability team who will display their football technique in a series of demos, as well as the chance to experience what it is like to play football without your sight – testing your senses and skills to the maximum! There will also be the chance to learn from the Everton Ladies and the Ladies’ coaching staff who will be holding regular sessions to inspire and engage girls with a passion for the beautiful game. And making football accessible for everyone, come and try out the sport’s newest craze – walking football!

Join the LFC Foundation for bite-size sessions of speed, agility and quickness (SAQ) drills, and basic dribbling techniques.

EitC will be taking over the weekday fixtures, while the LFC Foundation will lead the weekend games – kick-off is at 10am, and final whistle at 3pm daily. Sessions last 20 minutes.
