Shankly was famous for pioneering the world renowned 'Liverpool Way'. Now take the chance to experience one of his renowned training sessions. We offer a range of packages catered for Corporate Team Building Days, Stags and Hens, Schools, Grass Roots Football Teams and Kids Parties.

Train the
Shankly Way

Take the opportunity to experience one of the famous Shankly training sessions; delivered by The Shankly Family Foundation coaches close to his West Derby home and a stone's throw from Melwood itself; on either the hallowed turf of The Bill Shankly Playing Fields where the great man would often be found having a kick about with the local 'dad's and lad's' or at Holly Lodge Girls College, the West Derby School attended by all of Shankly’s Granddaughters and where The Shankly Family Foundation currently run the sports facilities.

Pass and Move

Shankly was renowned for pioneering the famous 'Liverpool Way' of playing. The pass and move ethos that is synonymous with the club was honed via Shanks' training sessions at Melwood. When Shanks arrived at Liverpool Melwood wasn’t fit for purpose. The great man turned it into a state of the art training complex for a football team playing in that era.

Meet a Legend

Experience exactly what the likes of world renowned stars such as Kevin Keegan and Emlyn Hughes would every day on route to conquering the football world.

Sharpen your first touch; perfect your passing; and experience one of Shanks’ famous five-a-side’s that cultivated Liverpool into the greatest force in the game.

You will get changed and ready for action either in the brand new Shankly Playing Field training facilities opened in 2015, or in the facilities at Holly Lodge Girls College whereby you will be given a once in a lifetime team talk by an ex-Liverpool player and legend. What more could any fan want!
