Live online training sessions with Chelsea coaches continue this weekend

The second of our new live online coaching sessions running throughout the current lockdown will help you fulfil your Saturday morning training routine...

The latest nationwide lockdown restrictions have hit grassroots sport hard once again, with training on hold, matches suspended and the development of young players paused for the foreseeable future.

However, Chelsea FC have the perfect answer to fill your weekend training gaps. Coaches Corner Live is a series of weekly live coaching sessions to help young players stay active and maintain their training from home.

Led by Chelsea Academy and Foundation coach Andrew Ottley, the second session focuses on dribbling, aerial control and ball juggling with drills that can be followed from home, whether in the garden or somewhere appropriate indoors.

The best part is that all you need to get involved is a pair of boots, a ball and some markers, although these can be replicated with any safe household objects such as shoes, jumpers or plastic water bottles.

Sessions will be broadcast live on our official Facebook channel at 11am every Saturday throughout the remainder of this lockdown.

After each session, players can continue their development during the week using Perfect Play, the world’s number one football training app, developed with and used by the Chelsea Academy. The app’s technical and physical training drills have been taken directly from the club’s youth development programme.

The next Coaches Corner Live is this Saturday 23 January from 11am on the Chelsea FC Facebook page.
