The LPA Academy provides first class professional football coaching
for boys and girls of all ages and abilities to help them become...
Our unique football coaching programme has been created with collectively over 60 years of experience by LPA directors and senior coaches. This trademarked football skills teaching method focuses on individual skills development and small group play.
The focus is to develop confident and creative players from grassroots to professional and help each player to reach their full potential.
Our coaching team comprises of enthusiastic, talented and highly qualified men and women who are committed to developing young football players in a safe and fun environment. From our apprentice staff up to our coaching directors, all are dedicated, hardworking and professional with their focus on teaching all players to be the best that they can be. Our office and admin staff are on hand for all your “off the pitch“ requirements and to help with bookings, kit orders, trial dates, tours etc.
Player safety and wellbeing is our highest priority and our coaches all hold Enhanced DBS certificates, FA Level 1 minimum certificates, Safeguarding and First Aid qualifications.
From nursery to school leavers, we are proud to teach over 6,000 children per week with numbers growing daily. Our method is suitable for all ages and all levels of ability.
We believe that the social and psychological development of a young athlete is as important as the coaching technique and our players enjoy a holistic approach to learning with us.
My son Charlie has been at this academy for five years now and has come on so much. He has gained confidence not just in football but making friends as well. This academy is very friendly and very supportive to all. Charlie is always happy when he is there. They offer a great half term camp and Charlie attends them all. It is well run and very organised they help a lot and start from basic football to skills and getting into teams. I would recommend this academy to anyone who is interested in their son or daughter learning to play football.
Josh has been at the academy for 11 years since he was 5 and the decision for him to attend for all this time has certainly been the right one! During this time he has had the opportunity to trial for Brighton and Hove Albion, play regularly against professional football academy’s nationwide, attend tournaments held at stadiums such as West Ham and Southampton, tour in Europe with the squad and play with and against many talented young players. None of this would of been possible if it wasn’t for LPA! Being coached by professional, friendly staff he has formed strong bonds with both coaches and other players (many that I’m sure will be friends for life!) He has developed tremendously taking onboard many new skills, and regularly being challenged by playing teams of older age groups, which has definitely enhanced his game and improved him greatly as a player.
LPA has given Ollie a structure to keep improving his ability over many years now, I believe far more than if he was just at one club.Mr N Davies
Without a doubt your entire team has walked an incredible journey with my son, Sava - over the years. Thank you so much for your time, effort, enthusiasm and professionalism at all times.Mrs Kioufi
I look forward to my training sessions every week and I am learning so much with my coach. I have met new friends and really enjoy learning all the skills.Samuel, aged 9

Paul and his team at Learn Play Achieve Academy have been providing coaching at Reedham Park School for a number of years. They are professional, reliable and efficient and the children derive considerable benefit from their energetic, enthusiastic and caring approach. We’d be lost without them!Head Teacher, Reedham Park School

The coaches are outstanding, teaching the children discipline as well as confidence and respect. It's a safe environment and wonderful chance for children to improve their game.Onnanda Arienna Stevens, Surrey

Since Seb has been attending his football has improved, he has been invited to shadow squad U12’s and has made many new friends. The coaches are fantastic and Seb and I would thoroughly recommend any child who wants to improve their football skills to come and try a session.Mrs M Frenchum
