"At the Liverpool International Academy America our mission is provide an environment where players can develop an intrinsic awareness of their own skill level and strive to push themselves as an individual. We believe that a player’s self-awareness coupled with professional training is the perfect environment to prepare players for a higher level of soccer once they graduate from the Academy program."
The Academy program is a player development based program where players of all abilities are invited to join. Academy players attend practice twice a week under the instruction of an LFCIA Western Maryland professional coach. Players are developed through the Academy program according to the famous Liverpool FC International Academy Curriculum.
This is a ten month program with training beginning in August and ending in May. The program has a Christmas break at the end of December and starts back up at the end of January, when you sign up for our Academy program you are expected to commit to the entire year and practice twice a week. Registration is open year round so as to allow seasonal participation. There is an opportunity to join in after the Fall season in January during Spring sign up.
The curriculum has been developed by the Liverpool International Academy America and is based on the current US Soccer Federation guidelines with the objective of preparing Academy athletes for play on LFCIA Western Maryland select teams and competitions.
Academy players practice twice a week with their assigned group/team with a professionally licensed Liverpool FCIA Western Maryland coach. All LFCIA Western Maryland staff are required to plan sessions according to the Liverpool International Academy Curriculum with a focus on individual player development.
Teams and Games
Players are placed into teams based on the player’s current skill level regardless of their age. The teams are formed at the beginning of the season, practice twice a week, and play in the nearest Academy league on the weekends (typically 8 games in the Fall and 8 games in the Spring).
We measure success in many ways here at Liverpool FC International Academy Western Maryland
