An Authentic Academy Training Experience
LFC Michigan gives travel players ages U7 to U19 the ability to train with LFC-Accredited coaches who teach the principles and methodologies that are at the center of what is taught at LFC’s Academy in Liverpool. In addition, our popular youth development programming, Mini Reds and Reds Junior Academy, for ages 4-11 is offered at several of our sites.
World Class LFC Academy Curriculum
We provide an authentic Liverpool FC experience, as we have a true relationship with the Academy in the UK. We have recurring technical calls and site visits with/from the UK, and every practice session we run comes directly from drills perfected at the Academy.
Values of Ambition, Commitment, Dignity & Unity
Our club values, known as "The Liverpool Way," apply to both players and coaches. As a club, we hold ourselves to the highest standard and pride ourselves in creating a supportive environment where all players thrive both on and off the field. Off the field it prioritizes family and community, while on the field it provides the building blocks necessary to draw out the best of what we want from our players and our teams.
Licensed & Liverpool FC Accredited Coaching Staff
We are committed to furthering the education of all our coaches, and provide many opportunities for their personal growth. All LFC Michigan staff members participate in the LFC Coach Accreditation program, a coaching education initiative driven by the Academy in the UK. This internal coach qualification program supports our staff with their coaching path to ensure that all coaches are coaching The Liverpool Way. Playing and coaching The Liverpool Way is unique to our club and our members will reap the benefits of having our coaches instructed and reviewed as they work through the LFC Accreditation program/initiative.
