Red Slopes Soccer and 7 Elite Academy will draft in coaches from English Premiership clubs for an exclusive three-day soccer masterclass in Utah next month.
Almost 1,000 youngsters from 7EA are set to take part in the coaching sessions, which will be held simultaneously in Salt Lake City, St. George and Ogden from March 19th.
The masterclass is part of a programme of events designed to bring the best international coaching techniques to young players and staff at 7 Elite Academy.
Each session will be exclusive and free of charge for players registered with the Academy.
Anthony Godfrey, Global Technical Director at 7 Elite Academy, said: “This masterclass is an unmissable opportunity for 7EA youngsters to receive coaching from some of the best youth developers within the Premier League youth academy system.
“The coaches we have selected to deliver on the masterclass camp have decades of coaching experience between them throughout academy, professional first team and International football.”
“They also know that becoming a great player isn’t just about what happens on the pitch. Applying yourself as young leader, taking accountability of your development goals, looking after your body and having a winning mentality will be equally important for everyone who takes part.
“With the league season approaching fast, this will help to make sure our young players are fully prepared – not only for the next few months, but also it will give them life skills that will benefit them for the rest of their careers.”
Each session will be overseen by a member of 7 Elite Academy’s coaching staff, most of whom have also worked with players from top leagues across the world.

“Of course these sessions will equip youngsters with skills for the season ahead, but they will also learn techniques that they can continue to develop throughout their careers.
“I grew up watching the English Premiership develop into one of the finest leagues in the world and I want 7 Elite Academy to connect directly with that style of soccer and coaching.
“Bringing in top international coaching talent will serve to enhance our own high-quality and experienced line-up of staff, making this an unmissable few days of soccer.”
