By James Shaw, 04/22/20, 10:00AM MDT


7 Elite Academy youngsters have been joined by thousands of football fans across the world in taking inspiration from the organisation's Home Technical Program and Online Masterclass sessions.

Last week saw the launch of the 7 Elite Academy Online Masterclass with Inter Miami star Wil Trapp, while players are now working on a fifth week of training with the Home Technical Program.

Coaches, staff and players are regularly communicating via Zoom, with further one-to-one review sessions with youngsters in the United States, United Kingdom and Africa.

The initiatives have drawn interest from other youth football clubs across the world, as word continues to spread about 7 Elite Academy's work during the Covid-19 restrictions.

Anthony Godfrey, Global Technical Director at 7 Elite Academy, said: “It has been a tough few weeks for our young people, as they look to stay safe during a difficult time for us all. Following local restrictions is the most important thing.

“That is why we are determined to work with them remotely and give them as much material and content as possible so they can continue their development, ready for a return to the training pitches.

“The first 7 Elite Academy Online Masterclass with Wil Trapp has been viewed by over 6,000 people already and our other videos are drawing impressive traffic.

“We have had a number of clubs in the USA, UK and Africa approach us for advice on remote training methods, and how we can work with them during these restrictions.

“It is essential that we approach the current situation with the attitude that we can work together with other clubs and help each other to improve the life chances of young people.”
