Lilleshall International Football Academy (LIFA) has officially begun recruiting UK and International elite footballers for 2012 / 2013 and has announced its annual Open Day at Lilleshall.
The official Open Day will take place on Tuesday 28th February 12.30 – 5.00pm. This day will allow potential LIFA players to experience the heritage of Lilleshall, meet the coaches, and listen to a presentation from the Director of LIFA. The Open Day will include a tour of the facilities and the opportunity to ask LIFA staff questions about the scheme.
LIFA’s unique football education programme is aimed at 16 – 21 year olds who have a desire to develop their sporting skills by working with highly qualified coaches in an outstanding sporting environment. Starting in August 2012, the programme will run for 36 weeks with the players residing or attending the world-leading Lilleshall National Sports Centre to train and study on campus. The programme will provide daily football training sessions delivered by UEFA qualified coaches, backed up with a vast range of support services including Sport Science and Sport Medicine.
