How LLS will qualify 500 coaches by 2022…
On Thursday 30th March LLS welcomed one of the architects of English Football’s “Golden Generation” to Qatar to launch the internationally recognised Your Future course which kicks off in September 2017 in partnership with Doha College and Evolution Sports.
The course has produced thousands of coaches across the UK and with the World Cup in Qatar just around the corner, Carr hopes to assist in the production of 500 newly qualified coaches across the Middle East by 2022, starting with this flagship course.
£100m and counting
In his role as West Ham United Academy Director, Tony Carr MBE oversaw his very own Gold Mine producing 24 carat players like Frank Lampard, John Terry and Joe Cole to name just three.
As well as reaching the pinnacle of the game- collecting Premier League and Champions League titles for fun- Carr’s boys went on to accumulate a fortune in transfer fees for their respective clubs- which at the last count was north of £100m- even by the Premier League’s standards that’s some serious money!
Carr’s “conveyor belt” produced no less than three England captains and he has now joined forces with LLS the UK’s leader in sports coaching & education to produce the next generation of coaches and sports professionals who could one day follow in his footsteps.
Carr explained, “Playing football professionally is the dream but a close second is staying involved in the game either as a coach, psychologist or sports scientist. LLS’ courses give students the skills and qualifications needed to access these opportunities”.
Carr, treated 60 young footballers from Evolution Sports to a coaching masterclass showcasing passing and receiving sessions which were former favorites of Premier League stars Rio Ferdinand and Jermain Defoe. After the action Carr retired inside for an intimate interview with beIN Sports’ Nicky Crosby where he provided a fascinating insight into his career and tips on what it takes to make it at the top level.
Premier League Access
LLS Commercial Director, Marc Garnett then joined the stage to provide further detail around the courses which have been such a hit across the UK, “Students will gain internationally recognised coaching qualifications alongside outstanding weekly work experience with our friends at Evolution Sports”. Marc then highlighted how LLS can help students develop their professional network, crucial for securing the most sought after jobs, “LLS provide students with access to internships at leading Premier League clubs and world renowned companies such as Irish based performance analysis company, STAT Sports. We have built our network over the last 9 years so we can provide our students these opportunities which can be life changing”.
To underline the message the 80 strong audience were then joined via video link by Sao Paulo FC, Assistant Manager, Michael Beale who spoke about his own journey from a community sports coach to Brazil’s most prestigious football club. Beale tantalizingly announced that future students would be able to access internships with himself at Sao Paolo in the very near future.
