TLG Juniors summer football camps with Liverpool FC
23 June, 2016 Careers Erin O'Neill
Liverpool FC is one of the most famous and successful football clubs in the world, with 18 League Titles, 5 European Cups, 7 FA Cups and plenty more to boast of. Their matches are watched by millions of supporters and fans from all four corners of the globe. Many aspiring professional footballers dream of one day finding a place on the Liverpool team, or even just being able to train with some of their favourite players.
The Language Gallery Juniors has been running a summer football camp with Liverpool FC for the past two years. This combination of football and language learning provides a unique experience for football fans who also seek to improve their English skills. Course attendees will receive all of the benefits of summer school, whilst being immersed into the world of Liverpool FC and football.
Improved football technique
Aimed at boys and girls aged 12 – 17, enrolling in this summer camp is the perfect way to build up the necessary confidence to progress in the world of football. Coaching sessions are run by highly qualified LFC coaching staff, who will help all attendees to enhance their technical skills in a friendly and encouraging environment. The sessions will inspire players to learn to play the Liverpool way, developing skills such as passing, receiving, dribbling, running with the ball and shooting in a way that suits the style of each individual.
Two types of summer football camps
Budding football stars can choose between our two different programmes. Our English Language and Football Summer Camp has a heavier focus on the development of language skills. Interactive activities and linguistic exercises themed around Liverpool FC will make sure that the language learning is just as much fun as the football sessions. The second programme, the Sports Leadership and Football Summer Camp, is for those who wish to use their summer to learn valuable leadership skills through the use of football. This programme is best suited to those who aspire to be part of the next generation of leaders, whether that be in football or the business world.
Strengthened English language skills
Alongside the fun of the football activities, the summer camp will also strengthen attendees’ English language and vocabulary skills. Lessons will focus on learning English with football and LFC-based vocabulary and linguistic exercises. As well as this, players will be coached through the football sessions exclusively in English, so they hardly notice they’re learning. Incorporated into the language development side of the summer camp are valuable skills and techniques revolving around management, role play scenarios, negotiation and leadership.
Explore the iconic Anfield Stadium
Participants will be able to take full advantage of the surrounding area, as we put on an extensive programme of sociable evening activities and weekend excursions. Liverpool fans will appreciate the chance to tour the iconic Anfield Stadium and Museum, the home of Liverpool FC since their formation in 1892. Here fans will be able to discover over 120 years of LFC history, see all five European cups and explore the legacies of Liverpool’s past and present football stars.
One of the most unique summer football camps in England, the programme has become very popular with children not just from football heartlands in Spain, France and Italy - but also from China and the Middle East. It is the perfect opportunity for youngsters to get a flavour of British sport, receive expert training and work on their English language skills at the same time.
