The 7 Elite Academy Home Technical Program is giving young people across the world recognition of their efforts as they continue following coaching and training sessions during week eight of local restrictions.
The weekly development and fitness sessions have been designed to make sure youngsters are ready for an eventual return to training - when Covid-19 pandemic rules allow.
7 Elite Academy has also held regular team meetings and one-to-one coaching sessions via Zoom, while Online Masterclass sessions have featured professional players Wil Trapp and Stephen Warnock.
And in a further effort to support youngsters, the organisation is recognising outstanding effort and determination through a Players of the Week scheme.
Anthony Godfrey, Global Technical Director at 7 Elite Academy, said: “Our Home Technical Program is giving players a great chance to maintain their fitness and work on development, while also following local restrictions. That is so important.
“But we know that as the situation continues to evolve, especially with young people following our sessions on three different continents, we need to recognise outstanding work.
“With our Players of the Week scheme, we ask our coaches to select the player who they think have shown dedication to our ETHICS – Excellence, Tenacity, Honor, Innovation, Community and Sacrifice.
“Of course, we know every single player in our academy is working as hard as possible, so we also want to thank them all for their hard work and dedication.
“Maintaining good relationships between coaches, players and team-mates is crucial during this period and team meetings via Zoom, as well as remote one-to-one sessions have allowed us to do that.
“Our Home Technical Program is also followed by players who aren't involved with 7 Elite Academy and some have even sent us videos of them training at home. That has been great to see.”
