Liverpool FC and Happy Children


Happy Children was proud to be the official partner of Liverpool Football Club in 2012/13 to run International Soccer Schools throughout Ireland.  What we delivered was exactly the same as attending the academy in Liverpool.  We encouraged children of all abilities, boys and girls, to come and experience our camps at our venues throughout Ireland, with all proceeds raised going to help with our charitable causes.

LFC Schools were two or three-day specialist programme for outfield players and goalkeepers, designed to develop the potential of every child that attends, from enhancing their confidence, improving their ball skills and ensuring courses are fun and rewarding in every sense.  Courses were available to children aged 5-16years, of all abilities.

Each Course Offered:

  • Professional and dedicated coaching from Academy staff in all areas of the game
  • Expertly designed practices, activities and skill sessions
  • The opportunity to learn new tactics and techniques, including improving ball skills, passing, balance and co-ordination
  • Mini-tournaments and penalty shoot-outs

Every child will took home a certificate of attendance signed by Ian Rush.

A word from Liverpool:

"Here at Liverpool FC we pride ourselves on producing world class players and delivering exciting football to our fans.

We take time to develop our young players to ensure that they each reach their full potential by guiding them through extensive training programmes and nurturing their development.  As a result we have produced some world-class players over the years, which is something we're really proud of.

We apply the same principles to all ages groups, including those who attend our Soccer School programmes.  Liverpool FC Football Academies run throughout the UK and are growing internationally too.  So no matter where in the world you take a course, you will train and be coached in exactly the same way - The Liverpool Way"
