Football on the Dock - Free Football Coaching this Summer

Football on the Dock - Free Football Coaching this Summer

The LFC Foundation has teamed up with Albert Dock Liverpool and Everton in the Community to offer free football coaching sessions on a specially created pitch at the city's iconic attraction.

From July 24 - August 11 the North West’s most visited free tourist attraction will host Summer Football on the Dock, involving coaches from the LFC Foundation and Everton in the Community 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.

The LFC Foundation, official charity of Liverpool Football Club, will be hosting their sessions over the weekends of 29 - 30 July and 5 - 6 August. Kick-off is at 10am, and final whistle at 3pm daily. Sessions last 20 minutes each and will focus on skills, techniques and improving overall confidence on the pitch.

Andrea Cooper, Head of LFC Foundation, said:

“We are really looking forward to heading to Albert Dock this summer. We run a number of programmes throughout Merseyside so it will be fantastic to bring our free football coaching sessions into the city centre for visitors to get involved in, too.

“It will also give people the opportunity to see a snapshot of our programmes and hear more about the work we do across the city and beyond as part of our mission to create life changing opportunities for children and young people.”

Clare Rawlinson, marketing manager, Albert Dock Liverpool, said:

“The summer is about being outdoors, enjoying the great weather and being active, and we know our pitch and free coaching programme will be a hit with our visitors – whether a football fan or not, and whatever team they support!

“It is brilliant to partner up with EitC and the LFC Foundation, and support their great work within the local community encouraging health, well-being and sport development. Here’s to an action-packed few weeks of skills and drills on Liverpool’s iconic waterfront.”
