Shanghai Lions Youth Academy

We started with a Lions youth team back in 2012 as we felt there were no playing opportunities for the older aged youth beside their school games !  It started with an U18 team and at first we organized friendly games against our legends and participated in an international tournament in shanghai organized by the Shanghai Football Association.

We started to train seriously at the Century Park field and when the SPL U19 11 aside on Friday evenings started, we were happy to join ! The model to aim for the older youth players was hard to sustain as players in their final exam year will have less free time to play and of course once they are graduated most of them will move out from China.

This season, the opportunity came to take over the 14-18 year age group from Century Park & we thought that it will be an excellent base to start developing our academy a step further.

Training

We provide training twice a week on:

  • Wednesday 19:30-21:00
  • Friday 18:00-20:00

Trainings are located at the perfect pitch of the Concordia International School & lead by Azzeddine Takouloufa who is also the trainer of our Senior and Legend team ! Nick Sherwood is working for us as physiotherapist and fitness coach as we build in special blocks in the training which focus on strength, speed, reaction & fitness !

Competition

This season we are joining the SPL U17 league on Saturdays and some of the older youth will get a chance to play with the Lions first team if they get selected.

Also, we’re starting to get players at a younger age (12-13 year old) joining our trainings. They’re of course welcome and our plan is to enter the SPL U14 league if we have enough players !
